Laurel resident Boris Johnson, a parent of an eighth-grader at CMIT Academy, said he wasn’t satisfied with the education his son was getting at another school. He applied for the CMIT’s lottery, based on research he did on the foundation’s Anne Arundel school.

“They’re about pushing the kids to learn, and not just trying to reach a benchmark. They set high expectations, and they have an intuitive way of making sure every child performs at that level,” said Johnson, who co-chairs the school’s Parent Task Force.
