• Students are admitted to CTEC through the CMS School Options Lottery.

    We will host information sessions in November and December to provide families with more information about our school and the lottery process. Once students are admitted, we spend the spring semester working with families on registration and will host an orientation for all new students in May.

    Fifty-five rising 9th grade students are selected each year during the CMS School Options Lottery. Over 65 students typically apply each year for admission. A wait list is generated in the spring and if students decide not to enroll, we use the wait list to fill open seats. We do admit a very small number of students at the beginning of the 10th grade based upon available seats.
