At CM, students thrive in a community where they develop their academic, athletic, and artistic interests and talents. They cultivate and expand their intellectual curiosity and leadership capacities. They sharpen their ability to think deeply, study effectively, and communicate their ideas and beliefs with conviction. Our school offers an excellent educational core and a wide range of electives, independent study opportunities, advanced placement, honors, and college preparatory courses. CM students have a range of curricular options that provide students with options to pursue passions preparing them for a collegiate setting.
Our course work invites students to engage with complex problems. By immersing themselves in learning, students find passions that influence their hearts and minds. Helping students search out and express their deepest desires in life helps them discover their own calling and gain confidence to achieve their aspirations. CM prides itself on being a place in which students discover where their “greatest joy meets the world's greatest need” (Frederick Buechner).
As the world rapidly changes and its need grow ever more profound, our curriculum teaches key skills: adaptability, teamwork, creativity, problem solving, critical reasoning, and openness to multiple interpretations. We expect our students to develop grit and nurture their imaginations. In the future, graduates will need these skills, broad content knowledge, and most importantly, the confidence to trust in their core beliefs and moral compass.
