We prepare students for college, careers and life.

The secret to success? It’s having caring mentors. It’s mastering skills you can leverage for success in the classroom, and in life. It’s having a vision of what’s possible, and knowing what it takes to make it reality. For 30 years, CFES has worked side by side with educators and students to ensure the secret isn’t really a secret at all.
