Cortelyou Early Childhood Center/Cortelyou Academy’s students excel because they are encouraged to be and do their best. We instill confidence and encourage them to have fun throughout the learning process and our teachers tap our student’s imaginations and curious minds. 

Our classroom environments are reflective of students and teachers from diverse backgrounds; our families can appreciate racial and cultural sensitivity throughout our programs.  Our students learn about the world beyond Brooklyn and that is what sets our students apart from their peers – both academically, socially and personally.  They are groomed to become well-balanced children as well as become productive global citizens within their communities.

If you feel CECC/Cortelyou Academy may be a good fit, the next step is to give us a call to set up a tour of  the facility. We highly recommend that you bring your child along for the tour. We are looking forward to welcoming you both to the Cortelyou family!  

Please note that our applications & documents for the 2021-2022 school year have uploaded, effective as of March 1st, 2020. They can be found under "Documents & Forms". Our updated supply lists will be provided at a later date.
