Pursuant to The DC School Reform Act of 1995 (Sec 38-1802.06) as amended, enrollment in public charter schools is open to all students who are residents of the District of Columbia, and if space is available, to non-resident students who pay tuition at the rate established by the Office of the State Superintendent of Education.

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, 2019, for preschool through 8th grade.

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