Our CTL Vision and Mission

CTL Vision

We are dedicated to igniting and growing a LOVE of learning in every child.

CTL Mission

CTL’s primary mission is to foster a love of learning by teaching students to follow their curiosity, to think creatively, and to work both independently and collaboratively. We celebrate diversity and instill integrity, compassion, and confidence in each student. We work in tandem with parents, families, and community members to ensure that each child receives the tools and nurturing needed to become his or her own unique self. CTL provides an intimate, personalized environment tailored to each student’s needs.
