Celebrating Our Graduates!


The end of each school year is traditionally marked by the strains of “Pomp and Circumstance,” mortarboards and flowing robes, and speeches about never forgetting the past while pressing into the future. This year is no different.  And as our students leave us to begin their journeys beyond the high school walls, we leave them with these words from Anatole France: “To accomplish great things, we must not only act but also dream, not only dream, but also believe.”

By the time Keagan Sanchez reached the middle of his sophomore year at Jordan High, he wasn’t old enough to drive a car, but he became a father.

He didn’t have a home and he hardly had a family — his mother left when he was 14, his father was never really in the picture — but even though life became more complicated with the birth of his son, Keagan didn’t give up on going to school.
Congratulations, Class of 2014! An estimated 71 percent of graduating seniors have earned an Advanced or Honors diploma. That’s an increase of 4 percentage points from the number of college- and career-ready diplomas earned by the Class of 2013, and 11 percentage points more than the number earned by the Class of 2011. 
The Class of 2014 is racing toward the finish line of their public school experience, with many poised to begin their new journey with one of Canyons’ unique college- and career-ready diplomas.

Commencement ceremonies have been scheduled as follows for CSD’s five high schools, South Park Academy at the Utah State Prison, Entrada Adult High School, Jordan Valley School, and Itineris:
