WHAT EVERYONE IS SAYING ABOUT CELC!

“Life at CELC is unlike any other sch.ool. There is a place for any personality or learner. Through our everydayexperiences 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.”

Sarah, 8th-grade student at CELC
