Steps to Apply

List of 7 items.

  • Fill out an Inquiry Form

    The Inquiry Form will alert us to your inquiry and from there you will receive information to set   up your parent portal and will be able to self-schedule your Virtual Visit and access your child’s admissions checklists with the steps below.
  • Attend a Virtual Visit for parents - available September through December (no application required) or Open House (held on October 21)

    The Virtual Visit is a live Zoom presentation with the admissions team to tell you about MCS, its programs and the admissions process. There will be time for Q&A after the session. We encourage families to book their visits early as dates in November and December fill up. Parents can attend a Virtual Visit or Open House before submitting the application, and one or the other is strongly recommended for the admissions process. We will hold one Open House on October 21, via Zoom. This session will include teachers and administrators.
  • Application - due December 1, 2021

    The application is what kick-starts the admissions process and creates an admissions checklist for your child. Submit the application and application fee by December 1. (Families whose combined incomes are $75,000 or less are eligible for fee waivers. Please contact the Assistant Director of Admissions and Enrollment to obtain this waiver code)
  • Submit the Family Financial Worksheet (FFW) - due by December 1, 2021

    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.
  • Teacher Confidential Reports - 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 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.
