Who We Are
We are the Corner Canyon Chargers, and we are charging forward toward college, career, and citizenship readiness!
Now in our eighth year, we have developed an array of programs to meet the needs of our 2,300 students. Though we are a young school, we have developed traditions that make us unique and that reflect the Draper community’s culture.
The mission of Corner Canyon High School is to inspire excellence in education, in character, and in life.
Our motto is Semper Excelsius, which means Always Higher. We expect our students to come to us with different levels of academic, physical, and emotional preparedness. We also expect that each student take advantage of opportunities to improve and stretch their talents.
Our creed is CHARGE, Care, Honor, Achieve, Respect, Give, and Engage.
