Admissions Process

Admission to Campus Middle School for Girls generally requires:

  • Performance at or above grade level in all academic subjects;

  • A willingness to work; and

  • Social and emotional maturity to work successfully in the CMS environment with teachers and parent volunteers.

Special note:

Our admissions events and practices have been modified to comply with COVID-19 guidelines.  Here are some highlights:

  • We will host a Virtual Open House (VOH) on this website starting February 1, 2021.  The VOH will remain open throughout the spring and is designed to introduce you to the students, faculty and parents at CMS, as well as answer many of your questions about our admissions process. We encourage you to explore this site at your convenience.

  •  We will also host two live Q&A sessions over Zoom:  February 3 and February 23, 2021, from 7:00 - 8:00 PM.  Register here and we will send you a Zoom link for the session of your choice.

  • You may schedule a private, in-person tour of our building.  Please email Sara Miller at office@campusms.org

  • The visit requirement for prospective students is waived for this year.  Instead, students and their parents will be asked to participate in interviews with our Executive Director via Zoom.

Financial Aid

Interested families seeking financial assistance should complete the Tuition Reduction Application, which is included in the Application Packet. All financial aid information will be kept confidential.

 

Special Needs

Campus Middle School strives to meet the educational needs of its student population to the best of its ability. Student needs are individually assessed and proper measures are sought to help each girl succeed.  CMS is a small school, however, and is not equipped to handle severe learning or social/emotional needs.

 

Nondiscrimination Policy

Campus Middle School admits academically qualified girls of any religion, race, color and national or ethnic origin and grants them the rights to all privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies, employment policies, admission policies, financial aid programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs. CMS seeks a diverse community of qualified students.
