ACADEMY OVERVIEW
We are honored to partner with Catapult, Inc. to provide Cougar Academy as a school within a school concept at CMS.

Our Academy is based upon student expectations and norms for appropriate behavior in school. By modeling and teaching these behaviors, we can lead our students to success. Students may also lead themselves and their peers to success.

By using a rating system, Academy students progress through a continuum of increasing responsibility and recognition. Students earn status and privileges which may ultimately lead to positions of student government and leadership.

While assigned to Cougar Academy, our students continue to progress through their normal academic pathway while being taught by a certified teacher.

Our ultimate objective is that student behavior changes and is maintained to allow our students to return to their regular instructional program and achieve success in school and, ultimately, later in life.

LEADING, LEARNING, GROWING, AND SUCCEEDING EVERYDAY!
