Dear CEA Family,

Welcome to the beginning of a fantastic 2015-2016 school year! I have spent the summer being inspired by our children learning and growing in our summer adventures.

We’ve been planning schedules, welcoming new faculty members and just building a school year. Construction is almost finished in the Conservatory – new administrative offices, 13 individual music studios, and a wonderful ensemble room. I’ve spent a week meeting with every teacher and getting uplifted and amazed at the knowledge, love, and passion they bring to Conchita.
I was asked this summer by a high school administrator what was the special ingredient that made our students so strong and well-rounded. I could not come up with an answer so I posed the question to my teachers. Here are some of their answers.

    • Exposure to life
    • Security
    • Support
    • Challenging academics
    • Connection
    • Common sense
    • Laughter
    • Consistency
    • Arts and sciences
    • Time

But the two most mentioned are the two I started this note with – what they give and receive from their parents and their students – love and passion.

Thank you for your support. Thank you for appreciating and recognizing the uniqueness
of Conchita. And most of all, thank you for the love and the passion you feel for your children
and their education.


Maribel Z. Diaz, Director

CEA Alumna Lil Isabel Padro represented the United States in girls' basketball in the United World Games in Klagenfurt Austria.

There were over 6,000 participants from 30 different nations competing in 8 different sports in an Olympic style event for U19 players. The games were incredible and our girls proudly represented our country achieving the maximum prize, the GOLD Medal. We are very proud of Lil Isabel's accomplishments both in school and on the basketball court.

We hope we don't have to do this, but if we do need to close school for an emergency, if the Miami-Dade County Schools close due to hurricane or other inclement weather, Conchita Espinosa Academy will also close. We will notify the local radio and television stations. We will reopen when the Miami-Dade County Schools open or you will be notified by a Parents Partnership Association member via our telephone tree. We will also keep you updated via our social media channels.
