A Truly International Community

CRIA has over 22 nationalities represented in the student body.

These are exciting times for CRIA as we continue to attract record enrollments from families across the world.  The Board of Directors gives special thanks to Lois Mare, the School Director, the Admin Team, our faculty, Parents Association and our volunteer parents for the hard work they do day-to-day, making CRIA a wonderful place to learn and grow.

The CRIA Board and school leadership provide the vision that drives strategic planning and day-to-day operations. We ensure the integrity, effectiveness, and reputation of the school by establishing policies, providing necessary resources, and ensuring the quality of the school’s educational program.

Our community values continue to attract a diverse group of international families to join us. 

The CRIA community emphasizes the importance of:

Excellence. Excellence is a standard towards which every person strives. We measure excellence not only by achievement, but also by effort.

Respect. We treat one another with courtesy, and we respect the diversity and traditions of others.

Responsibility. Each person is accountable for his/her actions, and is responsible to uphold high standards of conduct for the positions they hold.

Internationalism. We strive to promote cultural and international understanding and acceptance of differences.

Integrity. We foster truthfulness, work with personal and professional integrity and, we are honest in everything we do.

Fairness. We accept the need for codes of behavior and we apply these equitably.
