Important Enrollment Information

Please be aware that School Choice Applications for the 2017-2018 school year will only be accepted from OCTOBER 3rd- NOVEMBER 14th 2016.  
CPMA is an arts magnet for middle school students, grades 6, 7 and 8. Students who plan to come to CPMA should be interested in pursuing rigorous academic study and the excitement of artistic endeavor. We find the students that are happiest and most successful at CPMA are children who need to dance, sing, act, play their instruments and/or create visual art every day to feel satisfied and complete.
Students who live or attend school within the Madison Cluster may enroll with CPMA by completing an Enrollment Preference Request card.  Cards will be available at your student’s elementary school. Students attending within the Madison Cluster who do not submit an Enrollment Preference Request form will be assigned to Innovation Middle. All other students are enrolled by application through the district’s Neighborhood Schools and Enrollment Options department.
The Neighborhood Schools and Enrollment Options department compiles a waiting list of applicants, and enrollment is offered only to students on the waiting list. The application period for the 2017-2018 school year will be October 3rd through November 14, 2016.Applications for the 2017-2018 school year can be found at www.sandiegounified.org/neighborhood-schools-and-enrollment-options. Priority is given to students who currently attend arts magnet elementary schools and siblings of current CPMA students.
We enroll around 350 new 6th grade students every year, so being accepted as a 6th grader is much more likely than waiting for 7th grade enrollment.  Most of our 7th grade seats are filled by our continuing 6th graders. However, we do enroll some new 7th and 8th graders every year, so we encourage you to apply. We have Magnet Tours every Tuesday that school is in session from 10:00-11:00 AM starting September 20th , 2015.  Please call for an appointment: 858-800-5551.
If you have further questions, please contact the Magnet Coordinator, Jenny Rohrbacher, at 858-800-5551 or through email atjrohrbacher@sandi.net.
