Frequently Asked Questions

If the application for the grade in which you are interested is open online there is potential availability, but no guarantee, of enrollment. Applications may close if there is an influx of submissions but will open again at a later date if potential availability recurs.
Several aspects are taken into consideration by the Admissions Committee to verify eligibility:
  • School records
  • Reference letters
  • Standardized test scores
  • Parent interview
  • Admissions testing
  • MRPC member
  • Current family
  • Learning needs for a particular class/grade level
  • Classroom composition

These factors are seen more like chemistry rather than a math equation and ensures that MRCA is the best fit and can meet the needs of your child.

The Admissions Office has set notification dates for informing parents of their child’s application status. (If you submit an app. 1 week before Feb. 1, you will not hear an enrollment decision from the Admissions Committee until March 1.)
In order for the prospective student’s file to be complete, the following documents must be submitted:
  • Complete application
  • School records
  • Pastor reference letter
  • Teacher reference letter
  • Classroom accommodations and/or educational testing, if applicable
There are many factors that the Admissions Committee considers when determining eligibility. While a submission date may play a small role, it is by no means a deciding factor.

Yes, eligible children of both MRCA families and MR Church members receive first placement if there is availability during enrollment.

In the event that capacity for a grade level is met, MRCA will temporarily close that grade's online application. A waiting pool consisting of all current applicants that meet the necessary criteria for entry into MRCA will then be established. Priority will be given to applicants who are Mitchell Road Presbyterian Church members, current families, and children of MRCA or MRPC ministry employees. MRCA does not disclose the number of applicants in a waiting pool nor the applicant's position in their respective grade's pool.
