My son went to CAMS from 2011 - 2015. It was an 8 mile commute to CAMS but I''m so glad we invested the time and trouble. He had a rich learning experience. He is now about to graduate from Williams College in Massachucetts with a degree in chemistry. If you can get your kid into this school - do it. Warning: this place is not for flakey or lazy students. You will work your butt off, but it''ll be worth it.
