Canvas Parent Accounts

Canvas Parent

Central Carolina Academy will use Canvas as its learning management system.  What is Canvas? 

(Please note that PowerSchool is the school's official Student Information System and that final grades that appear in Canvas may not reflect the official grade that is recorded in PowerSchool.  In regard to grades, parents should only use Canvas to see individual assignment/task grades and teacher comments. A PowerSchool Parent Portal Account is needed to access a student’s PowerSchool information. To request a Parent Portal Account, CLICK HERE.)

Parents - Stay connected with the Canvas Parent Account.

    • Canvas Parent enhances the potential for parents to engage in their children's education. Parents can review upcoming or past assignments, check on grades, and receive alerts for student activity.

    • Canvas Parent can be used by any Canvas user with an observer account.

    • Canvas Parent can be accessed from any browser using the Desktop Login

    • Parents can use the Canvas Parent app on Android devices using Android 5.0 or later and iOS devices using iOS 10.0 or later.

Canvas Parent Accounts should be created using a web browser rather than a mobile device. The mobile app is an option but the information displayed is limited therefore we strongly recommend using the desktop/web browser option.

The first requirement is to retrieve your student's PAIRING CODE from their Canvas student account settings.

Step 1 - Have your student sign into their Central Carolina Academy Canvas account.  

Step 2 - From the global navigation of Canvas, select ACCOUNT and then choose SETTINGS.

Step 3 - Select Pair with Observer from the options bar on the right side of the settings page.

Step 4 - Copy the pairing code generated.  This is needed to link a parent (observer) to the student.


NEXT:  Create your Canvas Parent Account

Step 1 -To create an account from a desktop use this link and click the 

Need a Canvas Account?  Click Here, It's Free! option.

Step 2 - Click Parents Sign Up Here

Step 3 - Enter the required information which includes your student's Pairing Code.



If you would like to add the app to your mobile phone simply download the Canvas Parent App from the Apple App Store for IOS devices and from Google Play for Android devices.
