MCA Admission Steps
The enrollment process helps MCA ensure we are partnering with families desiring to assist us in fulfilling our philosophy and purpose as stated above, and also enables us to assess your child’s aptitude to succeed academically.
In order to successfully complete the enrollment process for your child, the following items are required. This entire process must be completed in order for your child to be considered for enrollment. Your prompt response to these items will help us process your application in a more efficient manner.
Step #1: Completed Application Returned to MCA with Application Fee per Student. (Check list)
- Parent Information Application
- Student Application (1 per student Applying)
- Copy of Certified Official Birth Certificate (Please present a copy, as originals will not be returned.)
- Certificate of Ear, Eye and Dental Form (Georgia Form 3300)
- Copy of Up-to-Date Immunization Record (Georgia Form 3231)
- Any other Health, Medical or Psychological Reports
Student Medical Release/Emergency Contacts Form (1 Per Student Applying)
- Student Pick Up Authorization Form
Church Information/Pastor’s Reference (or Sunday School Teacher of student) completed and returned to MCA.

This form should be presented to your home school if your child is transferring from another school. Your child’s school records, to include 2 years of reports cards and 2 years of Standardized Test Score Results, are required to complete the application.

Step #2: Admission Screening/Testing
The applicant will participate in a screening and/or take an appropriate grade level test, depending on grade entering. The testing will be scheduled after all required paperwork has been submitted.
Step #3: Parent/Guardian School Interview
Once your child’s Application is completed (completion of Step #1 and Step #2), you will then be scheduled for an interview with an MCA Official. Maranatha requires that the parent(s)/guardian(s) of the applicant and the applicant meet with the Administration. This meeting will be scheduled after all required paperwork and admissions screenings and testing is completed.
Step #4: Letter of Acceptance
Upon completion of steps #1-3, you will next be notified regarding your child’s enrollment status. Upon acceptance, parents will meet with our Finance Manager to discuss payment options.
