Finding the right school for your child and family can feel intimidating, but we invite you to consider this as an opportunity to learn more about who your child is as a learner and person, as well as your own family values around education and community. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!
MCS is unique among New York City City independent schools as we have a working farm in the Catskills
, a sliding-scale tuition program
and a legacy of developing young people who are intellectually curious, and are socially and environmentally conscious. Our core values are centered around: Academic Excellence, Activism, Collaboration, Community, Nature and Farm. Our students are skilled community builders and committed change agents who carry MCS and its values of equity and inclusion forward with them. We use a progressive approach in our classrooms to focus on the academic, as well as the social emotional development of our students.
We look forward to partnering with your family in the coming months. Our goal in admissions is to provide you with opportunities to learn about MCS. Please use our website as a tool to begin this learning. We encourage you to read about our admission process
, Mission and Values,
and our academic program
We are excited to return to in person tours and child assessments this year. We will continue to offer virtual Information Sessions and Parent Interviews.
