What is a DAY@CMA?

A DAY@CMA is an opportunity for students from any school or academic background to join us to experience what a typical day feels like at Coast Mountain Academy.  Visiting students will have the opportunity to join in classes, ask questions, and share in the stories of our current students.

We host regular DAY@CMA events and are always open to setting up individualized opportunities that fit best with parent and student schedules.

What does a DAY@CMA look like?

Right away, students will feel a difference when they come to CMA.  Our smaller classes and collaborative teaching methods make for a very engaging class experience. Whether it is indoors around our boardroom-style Harkness tables or sitting in a circle around a fire in the woods, students are motivated to be integrated, interactive, and invested in their learning.
