Learning Through Discovery

Every student's experience will consist of a challenging curriculum that includes Bible, Reading, Math, Social Studies, Science, Spanish, Music and PE. Spiritual growth is an important part of our learning. In addition to Bible study, we hold chapel every morning.

  • At Canadian Valley Christian Academy, we are on a quest for knowledge. We want to explore the truth of the world around us.

  • Through our multi-sensory, interactive curriculum, we will lead our students to learn through discovery. Our goal is to help students discover and understand the real life applications of each academic lesson.

  • Students will have the opportunity to participate in service projects which take advantage of our facility and campus.​ For Example: 

    • Food Pantry

    • Clothing Closet

  • We are also blessed to have many talented community members. These volunteers help students explore skills such as:

    • Writing

    • Community Workers (Ex: Dentist, Fire Dept.)

    • Farming/Earth Science

    • Watercolor

    • Painting


Hello! My name is Shana Pettigrew, and I am the STEM teacher at Canadian Valley Christian Academy. I graduated with a degree in Zoology from Oklahoma State University in 2008 and continued on with a Master’s degree in History in 2010. I have always been curious about the world around me, and I strive to answer my own children’s questions as well as I can, but I am always looking for a more in-depth and hands-on way to expand their knowledge on a subject. I absolutely love watching students understand a concept based solely on what I have shown them through STEM. I am excited to see this program grow with CVCA.

What is STEM? Simply put, STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. However, it is so much more. STEM allows students to learn about the world around them in a more hands-on nature. From building bridges out of household materials to learning about the life cycle of certain plants, STEM enriches traditional education.

Here at Canadian Valley Christian Academy, students in K-1 through 4th grade are immersed in our new STEM program every week. They will learn about density, aerodynamics, structural stability, electricity, and so much more. The possibilities are endless! This new program will heighten the already remarkable education children receive at CVCA.

Our Prayer for Each Student

For this reason (we) kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. (We) pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And (we) pray that you, being rotted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge -- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurable more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! ~ Ephesians 3:14-21

Our Commitment

CVCA is a school committed to Christ-centered education. Our vision is to create an infrastructure that will reveal God through both the exploration of the academic content and the experiences within our school community and the community at large.
