From humble beginnings to a thriving network of educational communities, CIEO has grown in size, in purpose and in impact. Thousands of staff are dedicated to caring and educating tens of thousands of students. And yet, despite the size, every student is important and cared for deeply. This is the true meaning of ‘Education is Love”.
