Welcome to CAMS!
Cumberland Academy Middle School is a tuition-free, open-enrollment public charter school serving students in 6th through 8th grades in Smith and surrounding counties. We offer a unique educational experience, enhanced by state-of-the-art technology, academic rigor, and extra-curricular opportunities in academics, arts, and athletics.
Lottery applications for the 2019-2020 school year will be available online January 1, 2019. The deadline to apply for the lottery will be February 15, 2019. Once you apply online you will receive a confirmation email within 2-3 business days letting you know that we received your application. You will be notified via email at the beginning of March if your student received a spot. No additional documents are to be turned in until you receive a spot. Please make sure to keep all information updated with us! Any application from February 16th, 2019 on will automatically be placed on a waiting list for that grade level.
Current enrolled students are receiving a Recommitment Letter on Tuesday, February 19th 2019. They are due back by Thursday February 28th, 2019. If the form is not completed by the deadline, your student will lose their returning spot for next year and will have to then re-apply in which he/she will be put on the waiting list.
