Welcome to Canyon High PAC

PAC LOGO 3The Canyon High School Parent Advisory Council (PAC for short) was created to benefit the families of Canyon High School.  PAC's main purpose is to facilitate communication between school administration and parents in support of students. 

The PAC board works closely with the Canyon High counseling staff to provide informative programs relevant to student success and family engagement (see below).

From time to time, PAC members lend a hand to assist school staff at school events.

The PAC board also serves as an advisory group to the Principal regarding educational and campus needs and improvements.  


Join hundreds of Canyon parents in their support of the Parent Advisory Council by becoming a member.

Your donation strengthens the many PAC contributions to Canyon.  Funds collected through PAC  memberships help to sponsor student scholarships, teacher and staff appreciation efforts, various needs across the campus and the popular student and parent programs (the 2019-2020 slate is listed below).  Every penny, 100%, of PAC funds directly impact Canyon High School.
