Seniors Join US Nov 10


Congratulations, you have made it to your senior year!  This year is full of anticipation and excitement as you look forward to the future. The staff at CMA is so proud of each students’ accomplishments!

Please keep in mind that 23 credits are required for graduation. Please review your son/daughter’s progress on PowerSchool to see if your son/daughter is on track for graduation. You can also ask your students counselor for a copy of their transcript. We also review this but ultimately it is the student’s responsibility.


Seniors who are considering college, either a 2 or 4 year, should be working on applications at this time.  College applications are available online. Once you apply online please let your student’s counselor know as we still need to send an official transcript.


Financial aid applications (FAFSA) will be available online at  The FAFSA forms can be submitted any time after October 1, 2020. It is important to get this completed as soon as possible.

In addition, we would like to invite you to Senior Parent Night on the evening of Tuesday, November 10th at 5:30 PM. We would like to support you through this process as much as possible!
