Programs of Study at CMTHS
Admission to CMTHS is based upon the recommendation of home school staff and/or IEP team. An application with a copy of the IEP, if applicable,is required before enrollment. The school enrolls students who thrive in a competitive environment. Through careful scheduling with home school counselors, students are able to meet most college entrance requirements and attend CMTHS. We encourage all students and parents to visit our school and meet with the CMTHS school counselor in order to select the most appropriate program and schedule of academic classes. Although our programs are developed around a three-year curriculum, students may enter CMTHS in 10th,11th,or 12thgrade.CMTHS registration forms are available at the home school counseling office and at the CMTHS website www.cmths.org under prospective students—student application.
