ACADEMICALLY RICH REAL-WORLD LEARNING
Imagine the middle school years as joyful, exciting, boundless…
CT Experiential Learning Center (CELC) Middle School of Branford provides an energizing, personalized, and significant middle school experience. Students come from a variety of towns throughout Connecticut, from families looking for a program that engages and deepens learning, where their children thrive during these important and impactful 5th – 8th grade years.
“Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I may remember. Involve me and I will understand.”
CELC … nothing teaches like experience!
WHAT EVERYONE IS SAYING ABOUT CELC!
“Life at CELC is unlike any other school. There is a place for any personality or learner. Through our everyday experiences we build relationships, and we become like a family. We go out into the world together. We work together and grow together. It is the best feeling to feel like you always have a place. You can just be you and find your place at CELC. It doesn’t matter what we are doing — hard and dedicated math, out in the woods, or walking the streets in Washington, D.C. – we always have a place to learn and have fun.”
Hannah, 8th-grade student at CELC
