Want to share a passion? 

Friday Workshop:

Bring your passions, skills, and talents on Fridays to CELC.  We are looking for students, parents, teaching artists, and people of all ages who would like to teach and present short courses / workshops geared toward middle school-aged students.

The idea – when you teach, it is one of the best ways to learn.

Do you have a skill or passion that you would like to share?

Contact Melinda or Maria at [email protected] or call 203.433.4658 to find out more and plan your event.

“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.”
