Constellation Schools: Collinwood Village Academy Cougars

Serving students and families for six years, Constellation Schools: Collinwood Village Academy provides a high-quality education that integrates the teaching of character education, values and self-discipline, incorporates technology (providing personal laptops in grades 2-6), stresses the importance of school attendance and addresses the emotional needs of each student. While our highly qualified teachers focus on specific educational needs, getting to know the whole child is a responsibility every employee takes seriously. It is a privilege to serve our families, and we welcome the opportunity to become partners in the education of your child!
