Additional Information about MGA’s Enrollment Policies
Open Enrollment: We do not require intake testing for enrollment in MGA. We serve a diverse student population which includes typical learners, academically gifted students, students with learning challenges, students on an accelerated path, and students on a modified path. Our commitment is to make a classical, Christian education available to all students and to equip all students. Our student body population reflects ‘real world’ variety in talents and strengths.
Parent and Student Commitment: It is important to remember that enrollment in a College-Style School® means the parents SHARE responsibility for the student’s education and have considerable involvement in organizing the student’s schedule, supporting good study habits, providing accountability, monitoring progress and submission of assignments, and generally supporting the student’s efforts, so that our educational goals are met. Parents who enroll their student(s) in MGA are required to participate in our Parent Academy, in which we clarify the responsibilities of the parents in this partnership, outline how we support and communicate with parents throughout the school year, and answer any questions.
Level Placement: Students are not placed by default into their age group. While that will be appropriate for many students, the actual determinant of the student’s placement is their academic level. We identify for parents the expected reading and developmental level for students in Grammar School levels, in order to place students correctly. In Upper School, we review the curricula with students and parents and use that, and any other information the parents provide about the child’s educational history, to agree upon the appropriate level for the student.
Number of Classes: Upper School students have the option of enrolling in 2 or 3 classes, rather than the full load of 4 classes. Grammar School students are enrolled in the full day, only.
Dual Credit: MGA facilitates dual credit for students by identifying which of our classes prepare students for AP, CLEP, or SAT II Subject tests. At the end of a course, the student sits for the appropriate exam. If the student earns a passing score, the test score is added to the student’s transcript. It will, at a minimum, provide outside verification for the transcript and enhance it beyond the typical transcript. And dual credit may receive credit at the student’s college (though this is at the discretion of the college).
Email questions about any of the above to: email@example.com
Mid-year enrollments: We allow rolling enrollment through January of each school year, if the level is not full. Please note that for such a mid-year transfer to be successful, the parent will need to quickly acquire MGA curricula, and work diligently with the student to catch up to his/her MGA peers. Tuition is prorated to the current month. One-half of tuition is due at enrollment, and the other half due in the Spring semester. All fees are due upon enrollment. The bookkeeper will provide exact tuition amount and payment date. We do not accept enrollments after January.
Part-Time Enrollments: Upper School (US) students may be able to enroll in two or three courses, by special permission of the Upper School Director. Part-time enrollments are only permitted when space allows. Per course cost is $875.00 and Study Hall tuition is $400.00. Family Registration fee, curricula costs, MGA shirt costs are incurred.
