Mitchell Road Christian Academy Admissions

 

Click on the steps below to learn more about our admissions process.

  • After prayerfully considering if MRCA is the best fit for your family, submit an online application for your child with a non-refundable $75 application fee.
  • In the application, we ask for the email addresses of your child’s most recent school teacher and your current church pastor, Sunday school teacher, or church youth leader. When you submit the application, a form will be emailed to both individuals for them to complete and submit online.
  • Your child’s school records are a vital part of the application process and required in order to complete his/her application file.
  • Our application includes a form giving us permission to request records from your child’s current school. Once your child’s application is submitted, we will request school records.
  • We must have your child’s records (including any educational testing and/or classroom accommodations) in order to continue the application process.
  • The Enrollment Director will set up a meeting with you to discuss the remainder of the admissions process, share about your relationship with the Lord, and hear more about MRCA.
  • Prospective students must meet academic entrance requirements based on prior grades and standardized test scores. We will request test scores (for K5 – 8th grade prospective students) from your child’s current school, but you may also provide them to the Admissions office in person or by emailing them to admissions@mitchellroadchristian.org.
  • Admissions testing may be administered in the event that test scores are not available or are out of date.
  • For K4 applicants, a brief developmental evaluation will be scheduled.
  • Once we have received all school records (including test scores, educational testing, and classroom accommodations), the pastor and teacher reference letters, and have completed the entrance evaluation (if necessary), your child's file will be reviewed at the next scheduled Admissions Committee meeting. The Admissions Committee will weigh all the elements of your child’s application, along with other details that affect qualification and best fit, and determine eligibility for the upcoming school year.
  • The Enrollment Director will let you know if your child has been accepted, waitlisted, or if we are unable to enroll your child at this time. Because of the myriad of factors that go in to making an enrollment decision, we will not disclose the reason for not extending acceptance to your child. Please refer to our admissions timeline to see when enrollment notifications will be sent.
  • Within your acceptance email, you will also receive a link to your enrollment packet. The online packet must be submitted ten (10) days after receipt if you are accepting enrollment for your child. A non-refundable $225 student enrollment fee is due at the time of submission.
