Our Mission Statement: 

The Center for Educational Excellence will allow each student to achieve maximum growth in educational and life skills by providing a safe and positive environment that allows each student to progress at his or her own pace.

Welcome to the Center for Educational Excellence, one of the premier charter schools in the state of Arizona. 

CEE is a recognized leader in educational instruction and located in the heart of Tempe Arizona. CEE (as we affectionately call it) is an excellent educational opportunity for all Valley students including Kyrene, Chandler, Tempe, Mesa, Gilbert and Phoenix Elementary School Districts.

CEE offers an exceptional accelerated curriculum as well as other life enriching opportunities to create a more complete learning experience. This has enabled us to be recognized as an “Excelling” or “A Rated” school by the Arizona Department of Education since we first opened our doors in 1997.

 

It is our mission to ensure the maximum growth for all of our students in both academics and character development. We work to accomplish our mission by creating a safe and positive environment that allows each of our students to progress at his or her own pace. CEE also offers a benefit that many other schools today cannot – which is our commitment to maintaining limited class sizes to optimize every child’s learning experience.

CEE serves students in grades Kindergarten through Eighth, as well as a private preschool, Fit N’ Fun Educational Center. All of our classrooms are staffed with highly qualified and certified teachers who encourage students to become life long learners. We enhance our nationally-recognized curriculum material with supplemental resources to provide unique learning opportunities for all of the students in our school. Extra-curricular activities, enrichment programs and field trips round out their charter school experience, along with a dedicated and supportive community made up of staff volunteers, and parents.

 

I encourage you to review our website and take some time to learn about all that CEE has to offer.  I would also encourage interested parents and prospective students to learn more about us by calling us directly and arranging for a private tour at your convenience.

Sincerely,

Stacey Cochran
Owner/Administrator
