ADMISSIONS GUIDELINES

Following is a list of our admissions and application guidelines:
  • Morgantown Learning Academy (MLA) values diversity within the student population and welcomes children of all races, sexes, nationalities, and religions.
  • MLA considers the records of all individual students to be confidential information available to a child’s parents/guardians and only after all accounts due are paid in full.
  • MLA reserves the right to refuse admission to a child if school personnel believe that his/her educational needs cannot be met in the MLA learning environment.
  • MLA encourages parent involvement. We require each family to volunteer a pre-set number of hours per school year and participate in fundraising events.
  • Please return this application form and non-refundable application fee of $50 to the school.
  • Applications for admission are available throughout the school year from the school office. All prospective students are requested to submit any previous school records and results of any screening and/or evaluations. These must be received before a formal admission decision can be made. The school requires that the child and parents/guardians interview with the teacher and directors. You will be contacted by a Director to set up an interview once a space becomes available. Applicants will remain on the waitlist until MLA receives notification to remove the child’s name.
  • MLA reserves the right to require testing/evaluation as deemed necessary, to make a decision about the admission of a child to the school.
  • A student must be 5 or 6 years of age by September 1st to enter Kindergarten or First Grade, respectively. early admission testing may be requested.
  • Class sizes are limited to ensure optimum learning opportunities for students. Applications are reviewed according to, but not limited to, the following criteria: date of application, siblings currently enrolled, continuing status, and the number of years the student plans to attend MLA.
  • You will receive a letter of acceptance once your child has been admitted to MLA.
  • You will be asked to sign a tuition contract with MLA. A variety of payment options are available. A ninetyday, written notice of your intent to remove your child from MLA is required and must be given to a director to legally terminate the contract.
