Canopy School

Empowering the diverse abilities of children through an individualized approach to education in a supportive, integrated, innovative and transformative environment.

Canopy’s newest educational solution, The Canopy School, opened its doors to students on September 6, 2022, for the first day of school.

Canopy hosted a Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening Reception on September 14, 2022. Joining us at The Canopy School for the ribbon cutting was Ridgeland Mayor Gene McGee and Ridgeland Chamber of Commerce President Ray Valentine. Guests heard remarks from Canopy’s CEO Dr. John D. Damon and The Canopy School’s Head of School Kara White. Following remarks, a grand opening reception was held that included tours for local media and attendees.

The Canopy School builds on our education expertise and empowers the diverse abilities of children through an individualized approach to education. Our goal is to enable children to reach their potential, so that they can independently thrive in their communities. We consider the launch of The Canopy School to be a historic undertaking—utilizing an individualized approach to education to teach practical skills tailored to each child’s strengths to instill confidence for transformative growth.


We recognize that students learn in different ways. Children deserve a learning environment that highlights their strengths and provides the appropriate support systems to address their unique learning needs. Successful school outcomes occur when the academic, social and emotionalneeds of each student are addressed and nurtured. I don’t believe that success has a “one size fits all” definition but I do believe every child can have a successful school experience when we take the time to address the needs of the whole child. At The Canopy School, we are creating an environment where mission-driven collaboration among educators, parents and students is the norm for every child and family. Sometimes, I think we focus so much on test scores and data, and we forget that school should also be a joyful experience for our children. When kids feel valued and their social/emotional needs are being met, they are able to put so much more energy and enthusiasm into learning.


School should be an enjoyable, enlightening and nurturing experience for students. They should want to come to school each day, ready to learn, confident in the knowledge that they are cared for and respected in their school environment. When I meet with potential students for admission into The Canopy School, my goal is to identify the many ways we can address the student’s needs. I want every child to have the opportunity to receive the care and the support they need to unlock their full potential.

5 Year Strategic Plan

Canopy engaged the Monitor Institute by Deloitte for a three phased strategic planning process to help the organization build a shared understanding of where we are today, make key decisions around Canopy’s new strategy, and build an operational plan to support our new strategy.







Canopy’s Opportunity and Aspiration

We want to expand our work in Mississippi, stay on the leading edge of innovative best-practices, and proactively pursue partnerships to meet children where they are.


    We will improve access to high-quality care and expand Canopy’s reach by pursuing three key priorities:

    • Canopy will seek to be a leader in driving innovation in mental wellness by developing a robust process for exploring innovative ideas; evaluating ideas for feasibility, impact, and financial viability; and adapting internal structures, processes, and resourcing to steward new innovations from concept to launch.

    • Canopy will expand its sphere of influence by pursuing strategic partnerships that will result in increased reach and access to high-quality care in Mississippi, starting by exploring potential partnerships to meet children where they are – first in schools and then in pediatricians’ offices.

    • Canopy will invest in capabilities to enhance our effectiveness in the rapidly changing healthcare landscape. Specifically, we will build our measurement, data, and learning capabilities and our clinical expertise to stay on the leading edge of practice, and invest in communications to drive name recognition, raise awareness of services, and gain referrals.

Over the next five years, we will:

Trauma Informed Care

In the fall of 2022, Canopy Children’s Solutions began piloting a new version of its Trauma Informed Care Training. While the organization has been partnering with an outside institution to provide trauma training for several years now, members of the Canopy team saw the need for something more in-depth. As knowledge of trauma and its effects has become more mainstream, the public awareness and discourse surrounding the topic has drastically changed too, causing team members at Canopy to collaborate, examine their resources, collect data, and ultimately revamp their existing training.

Trauma can take many forms and affect people in dramatically different ways, and this new training program is designed with that in mind. Each department at Canopy, from administrative staff to team members working directly with children and families, receives trauma training specific to the needs of their position. The program also includes bi-monthly check-ins scheduled to gather feedback and data, as well as to provide further training.

“Things have just changed. It’s no longer just trauma informed care. It’s also understanding, as a staff member, how trauma affects children,” says Nakisha Henderson, a Training Solutions Coordinator at Canopy.

The new Trauma Informed Care Training is not exclusive to Canopy staff members. Those who developed the training aim to provide it to other community organizations, such as schools, parents, churches and local businesses. The training also seeks to cover all ways trauma can manifest. From generational trauma that affects families to an increase in the chance for obesity, heart disease, cancer and other physical health ailments - Canopy’s goal is a comprehensive, continued training program that can help communities address and treat trauma together.

“It’s all one issue. We can’t deal with it separately,” states Sarah Howe, Canopy’s Director of Organizational Development and Training. “If we don’t deal with the trauma and get people the help they need; it’s not going to fix itself. They’re not just going to wake up and be fine.”

Developed in collaboration with Canopy’s clinicians, therapists and counselors, the Trauma Informed Care Training program has already had many positive outcomes and received much positive feedback. As the program expands through different areas of Canopy and the organization’s surrounding communities, developers of the program hope to continue to raise awareness and educate the public on trauma, its lasting effects, and how healing can be achieved.

  • The voice of our children and families always comes first.
  • Relationships matter and our differences make us stronger.
  • We take great joy in service to others.
  • Our families and communities deserve our very best.

Canopy employees joined together for the All-Staff Annual Retreat on October 5 and 6 at Garaywa Camp in Clinton, Mississippi. Over 300 employees gathered together to reveal the “Secret to Success” to further advance Canopy’s mission. Staff members engaged in organization-wide discussions, team exercises, wildly fun games and heard updates on the most recent strategic planning efforts. During the retreat, employees are also recognized for years of service and Canopy’s four core values. These value award recipients embody the values and strive each day to further Canopy’s mission both inside and outside of the workplace.
