Enrollment into MCA is an opportunity granted by the administration. The administration reserves the right to deny any student enrollment. Enrollment in MCA is a privilege, not a right. The school reserves the right to remove any student who fails to meet or adhere to MCA standards, school policy, or the philosophy of the school and the First Baptist Church of Milford. Parents are also expected to support the school’s purpose and philosophy.
Students are admitted to MCA based upon available classroom space, personal character, and scholastic record. The school reserves the right to place a child in a lower grade if deemed necessary. MCA will not accept students who have been expelled from other schools or who have a history of disciplinary problems for behavior such as excessive absenteeism, drug or alcohol usage, aggressive behavior, or immorality.
Three-year-old preschool students must be three on the first day of attendance and may be required to repeat the three-year-old program the following school year depending on their birthdate.
