Principal's Message

Welcome to the beginning of another excellent school year!  My name is Emily Christensen, and I am the administrator here at the Crandall COMPASS Academy.

COMPASS Stands for Center for Opportunities in Mastery, Personal Growth, Achievement, and Student Success.  We are very proud of our campus vision, and our name is reflective of that vision.  Crandall ISD’s commitment to character, compassion, and community, guides the paths we select and decisions we make with regards to preparing our students, staff, and community for the voyage ahead. The opportunities presented through our alternative education programs are of no exception to this rule. Each procedure, expectation, interaction, and relationship is oriented toward discovering what is best for our students now and in their future and directing those discoveries and dreams in ways that produce tangible outcomes.

The staff here takes great pride in the idea that our students are eager to take responsibility for their lives and work diligently toward the first step of what will surely be a fulfilling journey, graduation.  We are excited to begin tapping into the potential of each and every one of our students and nurturing those energies into skills and abilities which will lead their paths to and beyond accomplishments that they never before imagined.

We currently house two programs on our campus,  the District Alternative Education Placement or DAEP, and the STARS program. These are two separate alternative academic settings with distinct differences and expectations. Though the programs differ, our goal does not.  Crandall COMPASS Academy is an educational setting truly committed to the vision and mission of our district and community.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns, as we are here to serve you and your children, first and foremost.  Be sure to follow us on Twitter at CrandallAC!  As always, we thank you for your continued support. 

Hooray for a great start to an excellent year! 

Go Pirates!
