General CMS Overview
Central is home to the middle school component of the CSA K-12 program. Columbus Signature Academy (CSA) is a project-based program that provides authentic, intra-disciplinary projects, communication and collaboration development, and community service opportunities. Any student can apply to be part of this amazing program but space is limited. See more about the CSA program by clicking the "Find Out More About CSA" button below.
Some students are ready for a higher level of academic challenge and may find our Team Adventure a good fit. Students on Team Adventure will be exposed to high school level classes in math and science and to a rigorous curriculum in English and Social Studies.
This pathway will prepare students to succeed in higher-level course work in high school such as AP (Advanced Placement) courses. Students interested in being considered for Team Adventure should have a strong academic background and a desire to be challenged. Some students will be automatically offered a spot based on high ability testing, but students can still be considered for the program based on prior academic success and teacher recommendations. Learn more about Team Adventure below by clicking on the "Find Out More About Team Adventure" button.
Regardless of what team your child is on, they will have access to an amazing middle school journey and have access to high school courses. All students are able to participate in our sports teams, clubs, and academic team. We are excited to have you as part of the Charger family, and please contact us if you need more information to make the best decision for your child.
CMS Building Tour
Columbus Signature Academy-Central
Students on CSA come from all sorts of different backgrounds and elementary experiences. Students do need to apply to the program but once they are in CSA teachers work to develop all of the skills they need to be successful within the program and beyond.
Students on CSA are apart of Central Middle School and can participate in all of the offerings of Central Middle School.
Team Adventure is also unique with the fact that students have the same teachers for their two years at Central Middle School. This allows students and teachers to form deeper relationships and can enrich the learning experiences.
This team is made up of students from all elementary schools and a student does not need to be in an "AC Program" in 6th grade to be a part of this team. Students in the AC Programs in 6th grade and those that are identified as high-ability based this spring's testing are automatically eligible for this team. Any student that has a strong academic background and desire to be challenged can request to be on this team. There is a form to complete and acceptance into the program will be determined based on a number of factors.
