My School DC

The My School DC lottery application is a single online application you must use in order to apply for admission to CMI.

My School DC is a random lottery, and there is no advantage to applying first. However, applicants must apply by the application deadline of March 1, 2018. The post-lottery application is available at My School DC for families who missed this deadline.

If you have any questions, please call us at 202-588-0370 or email our Registrar at
