Capital City partners with educational organizations that provide resources and expertise in support of our program and our students.
Capital City has partnered with the Center for Inspired Teaching (CIT) since 2009. CIT exists to ensure that schools make the most of children’s innate desire to learn by investing in teachers. Capital City teaching fellows participate in CIT’s certification program while in residency with an experienced Capital City teacher. Capital City also serves as a summer training site for Inspired Fellows.

The Coalition of Essential Schools (CES) Network includes hundreds of schools and more than two dozen Affiliate Centers. Capital City has been a CES affiliate school since 2004. CES practice is exemplified by small, personalized learning communities in which teachers and students get to know each other well in a climate of trust, decency and high expectations. Capital City is also a member of the CES Small Schools Network. The partnership with CES was instrumental to planning and forming of Capital City’s high school program, which opened in 2008.
Capital City was founded as an EL Education (EL, formerly Expeditionary Learning) school in 2000 and has had a strong partnership with EL ever since.

Capital City has been recognized as a demonstration site for EL Education and hosts many visitors throughout the year. Learn more about EL Education at Capital City.
