Academic Program

"The instructional and administrative staff comprises well-qualified and experienced educators whose goal is to bring out the best in each and every student. CCS affirms a commitment to quality education and a belief that every child can and will succeed in ways that reflect his or her own unique aptitudes and interests. Students are continuously exposed to complex learning experiences, focusing around critical ideas, meaningful questions and purposeful projects. With a low student-to-teacher ratio and individualized programs, students and teachers are partners in their pursuit of learning and understanding. All subjects, with the exception of Spanish, Bolivian Social Studies, and foreign languages are conducted in English.

The Early Childhood Education Program serves children between 3 and 4 years of age, placing emphasis on language development through the use of a carefully designed and sequenced program that integrates all the communication skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing. Children become accustomed to the school environment and gain experience in working and sharing together.

 At the elementary level, (kinder through grade 6), a high standard of work is expected and the ESL program is available for students experiencing difficulty with English. A thorough grounding is provided in reading/language arts, mathematics, social studies and science. Students are encouraged to question and research, to find new ways in which to examine problems, and to form and defend their opinions.

At the secondary level (grades 7 through 12), there are specialists for every subject and students move from classroom to classroom. Efforts are made to assure comprehension, mastery, and application of all subject matter. Students follow a rigorous curriculum, fulfilling requirements for U.S. and Bolivian diplomas. Advanced Placement (AP) courses for university credit are available in all disciplines "
