I am pleased that you are visiting our site. I hope that your consideration of it leads to an actual visit. Nothing, not even a virtual tour, approximates the power of firsthand observation. This school will warm your heart, lift your spirit, and engage your mind. You will wish that you were back in school. You will see teachers who demonstrate care and affection toward youngsters, who challenge their intellects and inspire a desire to learn, who exude the passion of lifelong learners, who embody good judgment and sound values, and who connect the critical circle - parents and students - in a continuous partnership on behalf of the student.
In our sixty years of service, CCES has stayed true to its Founders’ intent: to prepare all students for success in college through the auspices of an Episcopal culture committed to equity, inclusion, and justice for all. We are committed to cultivating independent, critical thinkers who have a heart. We are also committed to culivating compassionate people who are intellectually disciplined and discerning, who can separate truth from contrivance.
A CCES education is built to last. It withstands the light-speed rate of change in the workplace.The reason for the enduring value of a CCES education is that it instill values and attributes that support good behavior and good works, qualities that never go out of style or lose utility. Our institutional values shape the outlook of our students. We cultivate respect for and service to one’s community and other communities, the pursuit of excellence, and the aspiration and tools to be a high-integrity person. Our students grow up subject to an honor code, which becomes second nature. CCES is a crucible in which young people mature into adults prepared to be good students, good citizens, good employees, good friends, good parents, and good spouses. Students develop a thirst for knowledge and joy in learning. Alongside the intellectual curiosity, students acquire the skills to know how to learn.
If CCES sounds too good to be true, try it and test my claims. I trust that you will readily see the bountiful and lasting advantages of a CCES education.
Yours very truly,
Dr. Leonard Kupersmith
Head of School
