Our son left the Vanguard school with a sigh of relief! He was being taught by uncredentialed self important, heartless, despotic instructors!

Graduating from high school with an Associate's degree or even a Bachelor's degree can save ...  Read more

As a teacher at CSEC, I have to express my enthusiasm for this school and these students and families. What a great place to work! CSEC is very, very different than the typical public high school.

As a staff member of CSEC, I see a lot of aspects that students and parents don't see. In every school in every city, there are is not a perfect system and education in our country has many challenges to overcome. CSEC is a great school for students willing to work hard and are motivated to ...  Read more
