Big things often have small beginnings. ESPINOSA ACADEMY CEA is more than a school. It is a place where children learn more about more, where the seeds of curiosity and compassion are cultivated from the start. At CEA, your child is encouraged to take chances and to always do his or her best. This guided process of self-discovery instills in your child’s heart a resilience and confidence that will last a lifetime. Analytical, imaginative, confident, and ever-kind, CEA alumni follow their dreams – and, more often than not – they live them.


Conchita Espinosa Academy is accredited internationally, nationally and regionally by Accreditation International (Ai), National Council for Private School Accreditation, National Independent Private Schools Association, Middle States Association, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Association of Independent Schools of Florida, and is a member of Independent Schools of South Florida.
