Mission and Vision
Our vision is to empower student success by providing a nurturing environment that inspires lifelong learning while using innovative technology to develop 21st century skills and fostering an appreciation of the arts.
Our mission is to create schools of excellence with a shared commitment among staff, students, parents, and the community that foster a nurturing environment incorporating strong core values and high academic expectations. Our aim is to develop a community committed to promoting service, cultivating responsible citizens, and establishing pathways for students to achieve their maximum potential.
Cumberland Academy is on the forefront of technology integration in education. As one of the first iSchools in the State of Texas, we are committed to staying on the cutting edge of technology as we prepare our students to succeed in this technology-oriented world.
Each middle school student is provided with an iPad to use throughout the school year for students to research, view video clips on subject matter, and complete assignments. Additionally, all CAMS classrooms have Apple TVs which allow teachers to annotate documents live, demonstrate apps, use as an interactive whiteboard, and walk the room while remaining connected.
Each high school student is provided with an Apple MacBook Air to use during the school year. Apple TVs and large monitors are used throughout the campus to enhance lessons.
We are proud to offer a strong curriculum of core classes and a host of elective classes which give students a well-balanced education. From Spanish classes for our youngest to dual credit history for our oldest, your student will be supported and challenged.
Our partnership with Tyler Junior College allows high school students to take college-level classes and earn both high school and college credit. During students' freshman year, they have the opportunity to take part in the TJC Promise Scholarship where they can earn up to two years of free tuition and fees by upholding the standards of the promise in academic achievement, persistence, and community service.
High school students in need of higher academic rigor than regular courses offer may choose to Pre-AP and/or AP courses for an extra challenge.
Cumberland Academy seeks to inspire an appreciation of the arts for all students. Throughout their educational journeys, students are able to participate in dance, band, orchestra, choir, theater, and visual arts.
Phase III of Cumberland Academy High demonstrates this commitment and includes a fine arts wing. This last portion of the Master Plan will include the following: 700 seat, state-of-the-art auditorium with full fly capabilities, stagecraft room, dance studio, loading dock, art gallery and practice rooms.
Middle and high school athletes compete in the University Interscholastic League (UIL) District 16-4A. Our coaches foster a culture of accountability, dedication, determination, integrity, and honor within our teams.
Phase II of the Cumberland Academy High master plan includes a 1,000 seat competition gymnasium, weight room, athletic training room, and locker rooms. Phase III includes an eight-lane track, AstroTurf soccer/lacrosse field, and baseball and softball fields.
