Principal's Message


Dear Columbus Performance Academy Families,

On behalf of the CPA Dragon staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the start of the 2019-2020 school year. As I move into my fifteenth year in education, I am honored to return as principal and to welcome our new assistant regional superintendent, Emily Engel. Ms. Engel has previously served in an administrative capacity with our Performance Academy family in Michigan. Together with our staff and families, we will work diligently and with fidelity to address the needs of the whole student by providing the opportunity to acquire knowledge, strength and values.

In addition to extending a heart filled welcome to Ms. Engel, I would like to remind you that school starts on Monday, August 19th. The doors will open at 7:30am for breakfast and school will start promptly at 8:00am. We are so excited for a strong, positive and successful school year!

As we open the doors to a new beginning here at Columbus Performance Academy, I hope everyone is enjoying the last few days of an amazing summer break with friends and family. I would also like to remind you about a couple of considerations:

Re-enrollment forms were sent out at the beginning of the summer and mustbe returned.  If you haven’t done so, please ensure all student information on the forms is accurate and if not, please update where necessary. If we do not have a re-enrollment form on file for your student, your student will not be able to attend sports tournaments and field trips.

Home visits have begun. Please continue to work with the teachers as they contact you and inform Ms. Kirsten (office manager) of any last-minute schedule changes. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Kirsten, 614-318-0720.


Emily Engel, Principal/Assistant Regional Superintendent
