Character Trait: Leadership

A person of positive influence in the lives of others. They have a vision of what can be. They know the way, show the way and they go the way.

From Head of School, Lacey Scadden
It finally feels like spring is around the corner! With the nicer weather, we are starting to feel some spring fever. Our theater class has been busy getting ready for production, our yearbook is wrapping up, and we are gearing up for spring break (March 15-19)

As a reminder, when we come back from spring break, we will be moving into state assessment preparation. CMAS state testing for all middle school students will take place the week of April 12-16. For opt out information, please email

We are grateful for each and every student!

Enrollment Open for 2021-2022!
We would love your help in spreading the word about open enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year.

When we ask students how they heard about CEC, 9 times out of 10 it is because a friend, relative, or neighbor shared this with them. Our schools continue to grow and we continue to impact more and more Colorado families because of YOU! If you know a family that could benefit from our program, you can share our Facebook posts, our Informational Webinars, or the link to enroll.

Please contact Jule Zehrung with any questions or suggestions!
Next Virtual Information Sessions is:
Saturday, March 6 at 10am
Existing students do not need to re-enroll.
