We believe that quality education depends on a partnership between the home and school. To this end, Cambridge parents are committed to partnering with teachers to further the development and growth of their children’s hearts, minds, and bodies. Parents are often seen at the school, leading a class seminar, volunteering in the lunchroom, and co-chaperoning field trips. We are blessed to have parents who genuinely care for one another’s families and share of their time and resources. We know that parents have and will continue to play a vital role in the life of Cambridge School.
We encourage and expect our parents to be a part of their children’s learning community and to assume on-going involvement in their children’s education. Cambridge believes parent involvement is key to the success of our school. We further believe it is the responsibility of parents to enrich their children’s educational environment. It is within this spirit that we invite parents’ involvement.
Parent volunteer opportunities are varied and numerous. They include: assisting teachers in the classroom; monitoring lunch/recess duty; serving as homeroom parent or as resource parent; planning field trips and other school events; helping in the office; working on the building and grounds; and serving on board committees.
Volunteer opportunities may also include such things as performing telephone or clerical tasks at home and providing childcare to free others to complete their parent involvement responsibilities. Whether performed at school or at home, parent assistance gives us opportunities to share our gifts with other families in the Cambridge community.
Parents are asked to volunteer a minimum of six hours per month for one or more full-time students or four hours per month for families who only have a kindergartner. There is a reduced commitment for single parent families.

Are we affiliated with any associations or groups?
We are in the process of seeking accreditation with the Association of Independent Maryland Schools (AIMS).
What denomination are we?
We are a non-denominational, Christ-centered school. We do not ask our parents to sign statements of faith; however, we do ask all parents to support our mission and vision as well as our methodology and faith based curriculum.
What is meant by an integral curriculum?
We find that children learn best when they can see for themselves the inter-relatedness between subject matters and their world. Therefore, we are committed to an integral curriculum in which the full range of subjects is presented, not as isolated bits of information, but in a way that reflects the wholeness of the created order.

Cambridge Parent Community
Once a child is accepted at Cambridge, the student’s parents become members of the Cambridge Parent Community. The CPC is vital to fostering the close cooperation between parents and teachers, a relationship which is distinctive to Cambridge. All parents are automatically members of the CPC.
The four primary objectives of the CPC are listed below:
- To encourage and organize parental involvement with the faculty in researching, developing, and implementing curriculum;
- To support the school in prayer, material acquisition, finances, publicity, and administrative help;
- To enhance communication and mutual understanding between parents and teachers;
- To foster relationships among families and staff by planning meetings and social events;
