MLCA welcomes transfer students in all grades and spaces that are interested in our learning model and our educational philosophy. Whether your a first grade family or a fifth, we know the decision to seek a different schooling model is not easy, and we are here to support you through that journey.
Because of the variation of school experiences, admissions for 1st-3rd involves a little outside preparation to enter the school and students do best in proactive transfers to begin unpacking the rigorous content.
In 4th and beyond, we have tracks and support methods to create an easier onboarding experience; however, there may be initial catch up work required as well as remediation built into the day to support curricular mastery. Please note that the language requirement of French is waived from 5th on if this does not support the learner’s predilections, and the student will be enrolled in a 1:1 “Classical Core Canon’ during the language block to help ameliorate gaps and holes in curriculum, as well as showcase key anchor texts for a Classical education. For students interested in both French and Latin, a student may choose to take part in Introductory French elective to begin to gain content understanding.
Strong and committed learners can and will find a home at Main Line Classical Academy, and we are committed to supporting your journey forward through our curriculum.
