You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers.

Changing schools is a big transition, and we are here to help make it as smooth a process as possible. We’ll be adding need-to-know information to this page throughout the summer.

There are a number of online tools needed for the best possible CA experience – luckily, most of these tools allow you to log in with one set of credentials! Parents can access LunchTime and Rycor through PowerSchool if your credentials are a match. New families were sent PowerSchool instructions in June, and can now log in to purchase Knights Swag, support the Legacy Award by purchasing a Limited Edition 40th Anniversary Mural Tote Bag, or sign up for CASSC – the very popular Ski and Snowboard Club. In August, parents can create a LunchTime account in order to pre-order lunches and load funds onto your child’s Castle Café account. Please note: although you can access the Enrolment Portal (SchoolAdmin) on the landing page in PowerSchool, you will still need to log into the Enrolment Portal separately. These systems are not compatible.


PowerSchool is your one-stop shop for to access newsletters, make online payments (via Rycor), and place Castle Café lunch orders (via LunchTime), as well as your child’s academic progress reports.


LunchTime is the Castle Café’s cashless program à la carte or pre-order program. Unique cards are issued and parents can load funds onto cards via credit card (no service fees) using the LunchTime program.


Rycor allows parents to complete all waivers and forms for field trips, sports, clubs, and extracurricular activities, order CA Merchandise, and make all payments in the “Cart” via credit card (no service fees).
Rycor is accessed through PowerSchool.

New Families FAQs
