To qualify, interested parents must complete both a Non-Resident Student Enrollment Application and an MCS Enrollment Agreement and be approved. The application must include the student’s most recent school record, including:
- Academic grades and test scores
Completed non-resident enrollment applications with all required documents should be submitted to the principal at the school where your student is applying. Acceptance as a non-resident tuition student is valid for one school-year only. Applicants must complete a Non-Resident Student Enrollment Application and an MCS Enrollment Agreement each school year. The superintendent approves all applicants based on the stated criteria and available space in school programs.
Tuition for all non-residential students is $1,500 annually and this year’s deadline for applications is March 11, 2019.
