Class of 1974



Conchita Espinosa Academy is a private, coeducational elementary school first established in Havana, Cuba in 1933. Conchita knew there was a need for a school that would provide an excellent academic program with a strong arts foundation.

After coming to the United States, Conchita re-opened her school in Miami, Florida in September 1963. CEA has grown into a solid American institution, gaining an outstanding reputation for giving its students an excellent academic education, sensitivity to the arts and human needs, a sense of worth, and strong human values.

Conchita Espinosa Academy is accredited internationally, nationally and regionally by Accreditation  International (AI), National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA), the Middle States Association (MSA), the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), National Independent Private Schools Association (NIPSA) and the Association of Independent Schools of Florida (AISF). We are also members of the Independent Schools of South Florida (ISSF).

 Conchita Espinosa
Festival of the Arts: Legacy
June 7, 2014 6:30 p.m.
Miami-Dade County Auditorium

Our Festival of the Arts has always been a celebration of the heart of our philosophy. From the first Festival in Havana to the most recent one in 2012, the stage has come alive with the talents of our young artists. Many of us have vivid memories of Conchita’s rhythm band comprised of hundreds of children who had learned lessons of the joy of music, the value of hard work, and the satisfaction of cooperation. We remember the timbre of the castanets under Rosita Segovia’s direction and Conchita’s soldaditos, and watching the evolution of dancers from novice to professional. As audience members or musicians and dancers, we have been a part of this very important facet of Conchita’s legacy.

In this our 80th celebration, each one of us should be there to honor who we are and what we do. Whether your child is on the stage or in the audience, he is part of the evening’s celebration and part of Conchita's legacy. Plan to celebrate with us.

Tickets go on sale
Thursday, May 1st, at 3:00 p.m.

*There will be Saturday rehearsals at the school on Saturday, May 17 and May 31 for all participants. Please mark your calendars.
