Canyonville Christian Academy


Adele and Rev. A.M. “Dad” Shaffer founded this boarding school in 1924.  Beginning as an orphanage, the school developed into a coeducational boarding high school of high spiritual and academic standards. The first graduating class was in 1932 and made up of two graduates, one of whom was the founders’ son, Robert. The Christian Academy has been a full-fledgedBoarding High School in continuous operation with grades 9-12 since 1935.
