Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) recently held its tenth year anniversary gala event, Across the Universe: A Beatles Tribute. The event began with a pre-party set in the streets of London with Beatles-themed refreshments, followed by a performance by the students from the Envision disciplines, a silent auction, a plaque unveiling ceremony and an after-party held off-campus.

This year’s gala was a bit unconventional in the sense that, unlike previous years, its focus and venue were much more personal. This year’s gala involved students and emphasized the school as the focal point of the evening.“We are breaking the mold of the traditional gala this year, and holding the event at the school. We are spending money at CCA for CCA and providing valuable educational and real-life experiences for our students throughout the process,” said Joanne Couvrette, Executive Director of the CCA Foundation.
