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 pivotal 5th-8th grade years. CELC's unique format combines small classes with many real-world and hands-on experiences. Students receive one-on-one contact with teachers, peer support systems, exciting adventures that vary from week to week, and ongoing relationships with community organizations and professionals in a variety of fields, all within a learning community built on the principles of respect and integrity. Designed to make education personal and meaningful, CELC students meet and greet the real world each day as part of their learning. This strong foundation challenges and builds independence, creates a resilience and willingness to try. Incredible growth occurs, lives are transformed, and discovery of one's potential becomes what is possible resulting in the self-confident and capable people for which the CELC reputation is known.
