The School and Community

CMI is located in the Riverside County city of Perris and is part of the Perris Union High School District. We are a college preparatory school for students who want to get more out of their educational experience and are not afraid to work hard and challenge themselves.
An emphasis on excellence in leadership and character building sets us apart . We believe that a well-rounded individual is not someone who is excellent in academics only, but also someone who is a responsible, ethical, a moral citizen, a leader in his or her community imbued with a spirit of service. Students achieve this by applying the structure and principles of Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. Our cadets wear uniforms, pay close attention to their grooming and receive training in leadership, decision making and military science. All cadets are expected to follow the core values of: Selfless-service, Integrity and Respect (SIR). They are also expected to follow the Cadet Honor Code which consists of 10 values held dear by the California Cadet Corps:
Loyalty, Education, Ambition, Duty, Enthusiasm,
Respect, Service, Integrity, & Personal Courage.
