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


In partnering with the College Board, Callanan has adopted Pre-Advanced Placement 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. Read more about high school level Advanced Placement here.  Professional development has been provided in both the vertical alignment of curriculum and rigorous, engaging teaching strategies to help prepare students for the challenges ahead. Schools that make Pre-AP programming accessible benefit with higher achievement throughout the school.
