More Than A School


Call: 305-227-1149
Conchita Espinosa Academy is a fully-accredited, co-educational independent private school for grades K3 through 8th. For over 80 years, Conchita Espinosa Academy has given its students an exceptional academic curriculum partnered with a sophisticated arts and humanities foundation, sensitivity to the arts and human needs, a sense of self-worth, and strong human values.


From the Desk of Maribel Zubieta-Diaz

For a lifetime, Conchita shared her wisdom, knowledge, and love of life through music. I can still see her on her way to class, full of the strength that characterized her - ready to teach reading, math, geography, values, life lessons, all through the magic of music.

This coming Saturday, February 23, would have been my mother’s 105th birthday. To celebrate, the faculty of our Music Department is offering a magnificent concert.

Music is a part of our children’s education and many of them “make music” by learning to master an instrument. Is there a better way to inspire and motivate aspiring musicians than to grant them the opportunity to watch and listen to professional artists that are also their teachers?

Conchita is a giving community, and this concert is a gift from the hearts, the time and talents

of the professional musicians who work with our students daily. In the spirit of Conchita and her legacy of community support, love of music, and joyous celebration, we look

forward to gathering together to remember our founder and the legacy she has left for us.

Thank you to all of the participating musicians and those who are making this concert possible.

It will be an evening we will all remember. See you on Saturday!

Maribel Z. Diaz, Director

100th Day of School

On January 31st CEA celebrated the 100th Day of School!
Our Early Childhood grades each had special celebrations in honor of this milestone.

K3 dressed up as if they were 100 years old and had a special grandparents' breakfast in their class. Thank you to our lovely grandparents who came and to Mrs. Castro, Ms. Merce and Ms. Magaly for this great idea!

K4 participated in the 100 Day Snack Activity. Each student counted 10 of each snack item to make 100! They got to eat some of the delicious snacks after they finished counting. They also created a banner of 100 of the supplies they use every day in K4.

PrePrimary came together to make a super list of 100 thinks they love about CEA! See Pictures >

Thank You for Another Great Book Fair!

What an amazing Scholastic Book Fair we had this year. It was a great success! We could not have done it without your help. Thank you wonderful volunteers, students, parents and staff!

Because of your generosity, our sales totaled $14,054.84 excluding tax. We can now purchase even more books for our library.

I would like to thank the following parents for their help and support: Mrs. Eileen Press, Mr. & Mrs. Ruiz, Mrs. Janet Bruzos, Mrs. Litza Lopez, Mrs. Claudia Marquez, Mrs. Victoria Casas, and Mrs. Yra Saab-Tro. I could not have been able to do it without your help. I would also like to thank Coach Daniel Prol for his amazing role as "The Big Red Dog." The way he motivated the entire student body to get excited about reading was awesome.

Thank you again for making our Scholastic Book Fair a huge success!

Congratulations to our 8th Grade ISSF STAR Students:

Carlota Montero, Diya Agarwal and  Arianna Martinez!

Each year the Independent Schools of South Florida (ISSF) allows each school to designate up to three students as STARS. These students are those who have shown outstanding ability and achievement in academics, sports, community service, the arts, and/or effort.

Carlota Montero was selected for being an outstanding example of perseverance, resilience, and leadership. She consistently displays a positive attitude, willingness to help, ability to take and give direction when appropriate, and humility, which makes her a problem solver and a catalyst for good in the CEA community.

Diya Agarwal was selected for being an outstanding example of integrity, academic excellence, and dedication to the arts. She uses all of her talents in the classroom, on the stage and in her day-to-day interactions to make CEA a better place.

Arianna Martinez was selected for being an outstanding example of leadership, maturity, empathy and compassion. Her unshakable moral compass, tact, and openness to guidance makes her an exceptional student leader within CEA.

Carlota, Diya, and Arianna, we are so proud of you and the people you have become!
You are Conchita´s legacy!

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.
