We know it’s a big, life-changing decision when you enroll your child in a new school.

WHO is Children’s Educational Services?

Not all students learn the same way, so many feel frustrated and out of place. CES believes every student matters, and its schools have a proven plan to help each student win and belong.

WHAT is the CES Mission?

CES Schools help each student win and belong because everyone deserves a chance to succeed in school and life.

WHY is CES doing this?

CES’ vision is to have a growing network of private schools in Florida in which every student matters and has a personalized plan to succeed in school and life.

HOW does CES fulfill its mission and vision

By incorporating a set of values into everything everyone does every single day


Fully accredited as an educational organization with Cognia.
We completed a greater level of accountability – we moved from meeting standards and best practices for full accreditation at a school level, to completing the necessary audit for CES to have full accreditation by Cognia as an educational system.

All CES schools are K-12 and are either called The Broach School or Crossroads Christian School.  The Broach School was developed in the greater Tampa Bay region in Florida. There is a Broach School in Tampa, St Petersburg, Bradenton, and Zephyrhills. Crossroads Christian School began as a solution for families looking for the same private school solution in a Christ-centered, faith-based environment. There is a Crossroads Christian School in Lakeland and Jacksonville.

At all CES schools, our maximum class size has a student teacher ratio of 1-15. Some of our programs even have a student-teacher ratio of 1-10.
CES teachers must meet the Florida state criteria for private school requirements. Regarding professional development, CES employees must meet a minimum of specific professional development that is designed by an academic specialist annually.
Technology plays an important role in a CES educational journey. All of our schools are equipped with Apple products including iPads and MacBooks. Other technology used in the classroom can consist of interactive smartboards, large 65” TVs for academic instruction partnered with a range of tablets.
Individual achievement and progress are tracked both formally and informally. Methods used include a personalized student goals contract, weekly progress monitoring, a range of daily formative assessments, quarterly progress reports, quarterly report cards and individualized assessments 3 times a year.

CES maintains the highest standard of ethics in educating your child.  We adopt the FL Ethics in Education policy, which is state law.  We perform thorough background checks on all employees.  The private school industry is one of the most highly regulated industries in the state of Florida.  We abide by the FLDOE requirements to participate in the FL School Choice Scholarship Programs.

No. But we accept McKay and SUFS scholarships which are state funded and therefore we are accountable to the DOE in similar ways as a public school. We must meet all mandatory guidelines as a public school (school days, hours, credits, hiring practices), however are free to teach content in our own way which separates us from the traditional public school model and allows us to better serve students according to our philosophy (ensure every student succeeds based on their individual needs) .
Yes, CES is actually a fully accredited educational organization – as a result, every school owned and operated by CES is fully accredited. CES’ accreditation is with Cognia (formerly called AdvancED, formerly referred to as SACS).
Accreditation ensures accountability to objective, third-party standards; guidance for implementation of improvement initiatives; and access to the most current, effective academic programs and resources.
CES was established as a nonprofit educational company in 2009. A governing board of directors oversees the strategic plan of the company and appoints the executive team responsible for day to day operations.
