2021-2022 Open Enrollment

The Open Enrollment period for the 2021-2022 school year is from October 1, 2020 through December 15, 2020.

All Applications received during this window will be included in a lottery, which will be held by January 11, 2021. The exact date and time of the lottery will be announced when it is available. The lottery is open to the public but your attendance is not required in order to secure a spot here at CMCS if your child’s name is drawn.

The lottery will determine enrollment for 1st grade only. The lottery will determine the 2021-2022 wait list order for all other grades.

About Montessori

The child is endowed with unknown powers, which can guide us to a radiant future. If what we really want is a new world, then education must take as its aim the development of these hidden possibilities.

Did you know that every student receives face-to-face instruction with their teachers EVERY DAY? Our virtual learning model combines plenty of live, interactive lessons along with independent work time. This allows the students plenty of opportunity to interact with their teachers and classmates while still having time for screen-free follow up work after their lessons.

We sure do miss seeing the smiling faces of our students in person every day but this is the next best thing. The teachers and staff at CMCS have done a phenomenal job of creating a meaningful and engaging virtual curriculum so the kids don't miss a beat by not being in the building.

Do you have photos of your stingray learning from home that you'd like to share? Drop them in the comments! We'd love to see what CMCS virtual learning looks like in your home!
