CEA is a private, independent, coeducational K3-8 school located on ten beautifully landscaped acres in southwest Miami-Dade County with four distinct facilities: the main school building, Early Childhood Learning Center, Conservatory of the Arts, and state-of-the-art multi-purpose sports field and track.
The main school building is home to the administrative offices, Lower and Upper School classrooms, the Café Conchita cafeteria, and the fully-equipped Rosita Segovia Theater.
The Early Childhood Learning Center, the most recent addition to the campus, is designed to meet the specific needs of early learners. Each classroom is self-enclosed, containing its own bathroom, sinks, and water fountains. The Early Childhood Learning Center also has its own designated playing areas specifically designed for our youngest children, as well as the Martha Mahr dance studio, an extension to the Conservatory of the Arts.
The campus has several acres dedicated to sports playing fields, which include two basketball courts, a baseball field, a fitness cluster, soccer and football field, and a state-of-the-art professional track.
The Conservatory building houses three professional dance studios, a comprehensive art room with a kiln, and thirteen music rooms for individual and group classes. The Alicia Espinosa library, where students regularly visit, and where our annual Scholastic Book Fair and Read Across America celebration take place, is also located in the Conservatory building.
From the Mastery Program, which assigns specific learning periods devoted to allowing students to explore an area of interest, to world languages, a wide-ranging athletics department, and educational travel, CEA’s facilities, educational programs, and curriculum are thoughtfully designed to meet the specific needs of each developmental stage from K3 through 8th grade, creating thinkers and doers who are prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century.
