Mission, Vision, Philosophy Statements, and Profile of a Graduate


The following is the Mission Statement adopted by the Board of Directors on August 25, 1997 and revised in November 1999, March 2010 and May 2014.

The Carol Morgan School is a private, secular, non-profit, college-preparatory school that instills a passion for learning, builds character and inspires civic and social responsibility. Incorporating a rigorous, U.S. curriculum and advanced technology, CMS empowers students to become leaders of a multicultural, global society. The Carol Morgan School will maintain its lead as a world-class, comprehensive school.


In spring of 2009 through a collaborative process which included representation of the entire CMS Community, a vision statement was adopted.

CMS: Founded in Integrity, Focused on learning.


The following is the Philosophy Statement adopted by the Board of Directors in May, 2014.

Committed to continuous improvement, the Carol Morgan School provides an excellent standards-based academic program within the framework of the best research-based educational practices in which students develop character, an awareness of the natural and social environments, and essential skills preparing them to face the challenges of our rapidly changing world.

The philosophy and objectives of this non-profit, community school support a U.S. curriculum in the rich cultural setting of the Dominican Republic where the varied international student body receives an immersion English language program. CMS welcomes families from all countries knowing that this association of students of different backgrounds and religions will help them develop a clear understanding and appreciation of the global world in which they live.

Designed to meet a wide range of individual needs, the CMS experience stresses the worth and dignity of all students and provides them the opportunities to progress intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically to their greatest potential.


(Revised April 2015)

We believe in a safe, supportive learning community in which challenges are met with respect, compassion and enthusiasm to foster achievement of potential and expand personal and collective excellence. CMS students acquire an academic foundation of required skills, knowledge and achievement that leads them to:

  • Be lifelong learners with global perspectives
