Milpitas Christian School Admissions Policy

Milpitas Christian School provides a well-rounded experience to support student development emotionally, developmentally, socially, spiritually, and academically.

Milpitas Christian School admits students of any race, color, and national and 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, or national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

After currently enrolled students, their siblings, and children of staff members, admission is on a first-come, first-served basis.
When admission is not in the best interest of the school or the applicant, acceptance may not be granted. Students showing academic deficiencies may be admitted conditionally on recommendation by the student Study Team. An agreement for tutoring or other special services may be required until MCS grade level standards have been met.
Once accepted, continued enrollment at MCS is subject to the student successfully maintaining the standards set forth in the student policies as well as parents fulfilling their responsibilities as listed in the Parent/ Student Handbook.
