Admissions & Enrollment

Admissions

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.

Admission and 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. Parents are also expected to support the school’s purpose and philosophy.

Students must reside with parents or legal guardians in order to remain in school, even after the age of eighteen if still enrolled. Students that are married or who are single parents are not permitted to attend, nor can students become engaged to be married while enrolled at MCA.

First Baptist Church members have priority of enrollment (until the pre-announced cut-off date) in the event there is a waiting list.

MCA admits students of any race, color, nationality, and ethnic origin and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin in our educational and athletic policies and programs.
