Admissions

Policy Overview

Myrtle Grove Christian School seeks to enroll students whose parents want them to have a Christian education. Both students and parents should be informed of the school’s Christian emphasis and agree to support this part of the training.

Prospective families must first complete the online application and submit all of the required documentation. Students applying for grades kindergarten through eight must then schedule and complete an admissions test. After a review of the application information and test results, the student may be required to visit the school for observation in academic and social settings.

The student application will be evaluated for admission based on previous grades, attendance records, teacher/principal recommendations, parent cooperation with school, student/parent interview, test scores from previous school, our testing results, and a student visit.

The admissions process is designed to identify families and students for whom MGCS provides a good academic and spiritual fit. The school will enroll students based upon a variety of criteria, not on a first come first served basis.

Non-Discrimination Policy

Myrtle Grove Christian School admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship programs and athletic or other school-administered program.

Priority Enrollment

Re-enrollment
MGCS Offers priority enrollment for presently enrolled students provided tuition and day care account balances are current, and the re enrollment forms and registration fees are submitted by the early registration deadline.

Sibling Enrollment
Limited priority enrollment for qualified, new students is offered, as space is available, to siblings of currently enrolled students. The enrollment privilege must be exercised by the priority enrollment deadline.

Waiting Pool

If an applicant meets the admission requirements for enrollment but is applying for enrollment in a grade that is full, the applicant will be placed in a waiting pool for his/her grade level. Unlike a waiting list, a waiting pool does not imply a “first listed first served” commitment on the part of the school. When vacancies do occur, the principal will select from students in the waiting pool based on a variety of criteria.
