The December 1 application deadline for the 2022-2023 school year has passed. Applications submitted at this stage of the year will be reviewed on a case by case basis where we have openings and sliding-scale tuition is available. After receiving your application, we will follow up with you if we are able to bring you through the admissions process. 
5th through 8th grades constitute MCS’s Upper School.

The following steps are required to complete the admissions process.
All necessary links and forms will be accessible in your admissions checklist on your applicant portal.

Steps to Apply

List of 5 items.

  • Submit an Application

    Apply for the 2022-2023 school year here. When you submit your application, you will have access to your admissions checklist. We will reach out if we anticipate having open spaces in your applying grade.
  • Submit the Family Financial Worksheet (FFW)

    MCS does not have a financial aid program, rather, we operate on a sliding scale tuition model. The FFW is what allows MCS to calculate each family’s tuition fee, based on their financial profile. Each family’s tuition fee is detailed on their enrollment contract if and when an admissions acceptance is issued.Families who opt for the maximum tuition fee should indicate that on the FFW as well.
  • Student Interview (virtual)

    The interview with our Upper School Director is a way for us to engage with your child, get to know them, and assess their skills via conversations involving problem-solving challenges. Interviews will be by invitation and based on projected openings. We encourage families to submit their applications early in the process.
  • Supplemental Materials - due by January 7, 2022

    Please request that your child’s current teacher(s) fill out the Math and English Teacher Confidential Reports. You can send the requests to your child’s teacher via the checklist in your admissions portal.

    We will need a copy of your child's current and previous year report card, as well as student work samples in Math and English.

    We recommend that you submit the requests after November 15 so that your child’s teachers have had an opportunity to get to know them.
  • In-person tours - projected for late Winter

    Our goal is to offer in-person tours in small groups for families who have applied by December 1.
