We are Columbus, where learning is an exciting expedition!

At Christopher Columbus Family Academy, we always keep in mind that our kids are growing, and we must help them develop ways to share their knowledge and
learn about themselves. Being at Columbus makes you feel that you are at home with people who care about you and support you. Here, our students help mentor
each other. Spanish-speaking students get to be the experts in the Spanish classroom and Englishspeaking students get to be the experts in the English classroom.
In addition to supporting bilingual skill and exposure, we focus on science literacy so that our kids are prepared for the career opportunities and societal needs of the future. Come sail with us into the 21st century!


How to Know Columbus is Uniquely Right for Your Child:

○ Your child likes to learn in more than one language. We teach and learn in both English and Spanish.

○ Your child likes to work in teams.

○ Your child loves science.
