CPMSAC Achiever Academic Recognition

CPMSAC is proud of the academic accomplishments of our students. After the 1st and 2nd grading periods, eligible students will receive certificates from CPMSAC. The certificates are one way CPMSAC rewards students for their hard work.

Reading Program

S.T.E.P has designed a reading program in partnership with Chantilly Regional Public Library to help students improve their reading skills. There are two parts to the program: The first part is the Reading Club which students in all grade level are encouraged to read for fun and develop a wide knowledge base through reading. The second part of program is called Read Out Loud. Tutors work with elementary students who are being tutored for reading improvement. Students are given reading assignments to read out loud and answer questions from their readings, and participate in reading discussions.
