More about CELC Middle School
CELC Middle School is a unique experientially based middle school in Branford, CT, promoting learner-centered robust academics combined with out-of-the-classroom experiences, 5th – 8th grade (selected 4th-graders).
CELC was founded in 2009 by educators Maria Mortali and Melinda Alcosser. Designed to have a low teacher student ratio, individuals are met where they are and challenged, based on their own ability and skill level.
CELC sees each child as unique, capable, curious, wondrous. We know that learning starts with children’s interests, passions, and aspirations, and that the goal of education is for us to each discover who we are, what our gifts are, and how to contribute those in a meaningful way to the world.
Small in size yet lasting in impact, CELC prides itself on teaching children the value of being productive members of the local community and constructive citizens of the world.
