Admissions

  • Enrollment Policies and Requirements

    The Preschool maintains a nondiscriminatory admission policy. Acceptance for every new school year is not automatic. In January, parents must re-enroll children for the coming school year.

    To enter school in the fall, children must reach the appropriate age requirement.

    One-Year Class(PK-1): Child must be at least 12 months but not older than 24 months on September 1.
    Two-Year Class (PK-2): Child must be at least 2 years by September 1st.
    Three-Year Class (PK-3): Child must be at least 3 years by September 1st.
    Four-Year Class (PK-4): Child must be at least 4 years by September 1st.
    PK-5/Kindergarten – Must be five by September 1st.

    We expect children to be potty trained by the time they enter the PK-3 class, but understand there are exceptions. Please contact us regarding these exceptions. Parents must submit a current Immunization (3231) form with a doctor’s name, address, phone number, and signature PRIOR to the child’s first day of school. Parents must complete all necessary forms, in particular, the Registration Form, Student Information Form, Emergency Information and Picture Consent Form prior to the start of school.

    Registration

    Registration begins for currently enrolled students in January. In February we open up registration to everyone. The registration fee is $100. This fee is non-refundable. It is payable at the time of registration and must accompany a completed application to reserve a place in class.

    If you are a member of MPC, registration for one child will be waived. Checks should be made payable to McDonough Presbyterian Children’s Academy (MPCA). A supply fee will be added to your August tuition. The supply fee is $160 for Kindergarten, $135 for 5 day students, $110 for students who attend 3 days, and $85 for students who attend 2 days. This fee covers the cost of curriculum, art supplies, classroom supplies, and other necessary materials.

    Tuition

    Tuition is due the first of each school month. The director must receive the tuition by the 15th of the month or a $5.00 late fee will be assessed. Unless tuition and late fees are received before the 30th of the month, your child will be withdrawn from school immediately and will not be able to attend the remainder of the school year.

    Checks should be made payable to McDonough Presbyterian Children’s Academy or MPCA. A $20 service charge will be assessed on all returned checks. Children are expected to remain the full term, except for doctor’s orders or transfer from the city. We cannot give tuition refunds for days your child is absent.
