Callanan Vision: The Callanan Community inspires and celebrates student success and life-long learning.


In partnering with the College Board, Callanan has adopted Pre-AP as a school-wide academic model. Pre-AP programming is one significant way in which we will meet the goal of preparing all of our students for academic success in high school. Professional development has been provided in both the vertical alignment of curriculum and rigorous, engaging instructional strategies to help prepare students for the challenges ahead. Schools that make Pre-AP accessible to all students benefit from higher standards throughout the entire school.
