The PA Grants Program exists to support teachers and staff at CCHS in their efforts to enrich and broaden the educational experience of all CCHS students. We typically spend about a third of the annual PA budget funding grants that are:


• student-focused,

• meaningful, substantial, or rewarding for the student experience,

• consistent with CCHS goals,

• fiscally responsible, and

• unable to be funded via another source.

Grants are an opportunity for teachers to try something new, branch out, experiment, or expand a successful concept. The PA hopes to fund as many different teachers, departments, and new ideas as possible.
