The Espinosa Method

Education for Life

Education at CEA extends beyond traditional schooling, creating well-rounded, whole individuals. Students learn to think and develop compassion, a sense of duty, self-awareness, and pride in themselves and their community.

The Arts

Human beings need creativity to feel fulfilled. Participation in the arts allows individuals to approach tasks from various perspectives and encourages students to take risks, “think outside the box,” and cultivate skills that transcend sectors.

Mastery Program

Lessons learned in mastery programs transfer to all other areas of learning. When you learn and master any new skill, you reinforce and enhance the connections you already have.

Character Education

Throughout the school day, character education takes place, and students are engaged in an environment that fosters the development of self-discipline, respect for self and other, and empathy.

From the Desk of Maribel Z. Diaz

Fairy dust on my desk.

For many years I kept a bottle of fairy dust on my desk.   Whenever I had students come into my office with a problem, I would sprinkle some fairy dust on their heads to help them calm down and figure out solutions to their problems.  After a good talk and more fairy dust to give them strength and clarity, they would leave with the feeling of everything will work out.  I must say the success rate was quite high.


Today I wish I could sprinkle fairy dust on our world to make COVID-19 disappear and for us to return to our regular lives.
