Campion Academy Alumni Weekend is still scheduled, at this time, for September 18- 20, 2020. We are continually monitoring the pandemic situation and subsequent government regulations. Our number one goal is to keep our students, staff, and alumni safe. While we have considered postponing the weekend to the spring, we understand from medical professionals that there is a significantly higher probability of virus recurrence or flu season issues in the spring versus this fall.
We also understand that some of our alumni still may not wish to travel during this time. Honor year classes may request to join in the celebration in 2021; please feel free to communicate with us regarding your options. We will, of course, live-stream all the major events during the weekend for those who cannot attend.
If the situation changes, we will announce updates by late July to give our alumni as much notice as possible.
All local-area Alumni Reunions, such as Loma Linda, Lincoln, Casper, Fort Worth, and Grand Junction, are cancelled for 2020. We hope to see you in your area in 2021.
They did it! Our senior class is graduated . What's more, they all graduated debt-free - thanks to you!
If you weren't able to join us online for the graduation ceremony, you can view photos, video, and stories about our unique celebration on our news blog . Despite the social distancing and the somewhat uncooperative weather, you could feel the joy as the seniors and their families celebrated with our staff.
We cannot thank you enough for your support in relieving some of the financial strain on these families.
As our Alumni President, Codi (Davidson) Jahn '01, mentions in the video above, we still have an opportunity to help the rest of our students in preparation for next year. They've worked so hard to be both academically and financially responsible during these unprecedented circumstances.
Now is the time when students and parents are taking steps to re-enroll for next year. We still need to raise $100,000 to help our students return next year debt-free.
As America continues to support those in need and those who are courageously fighting this disease on the front-line, we ask you to help keep the momentum going and rally around our students. We realize that perhaps you, along with an already identified number of our Campion parents, have been adversely affected by this pandemic. Please know you are in our prayers. If you have not been as greatly affected by this crisis as others, are you willing and able to assist our students?
You are part of the Campion legacy, our backbone. We are so grateful for you!
In response to recent events, I want to assert that Campion Academy stands firmly against racist acts and racist speech. Our campus enjoys a culturally and ethnically diverse population. We consider that diversity as one of our strengths. We encourage the celebration of that diversity in providing ways for our students to share their culture and embrace their differences. It is with an especially heavy heart that we watch these current events, knowing it greatly impacts our students and alumni of color.
We understand that many of our students have been faced with acts of racism during their lives. We are committed to continue making Campion Academy a safe, respectful atmosphere for our students, regardless of ethnic background. Racism divides and is used by the forces of evil to keep the knowledge of God from reaching the world. It hurts His children, impacting their growth and success. We will not tolerate racism.
Campion seeks to follow the charge given by Jesus to go into all the world and lift up Jesus as stated in John 12:32, as well as the assertions in Galatians 3:28 and many other verses that we are ALL one in Christ. We celebrate being a part of the most ethnically-diverse Christian faith in the United States and will continue to teach our students to uphold those values for our brothers and sisters of all ethnicities.
In support of this commitment, Campion Academy will work with our African American students and alumni to hold ourselves accountable, and to ensure that our campus remains supportive in the ways they need. Please join us in doing all that we can to root out racism.
Principal, Campion Academy
