FAQs (click for anwsers)

  • Q — What is your admission process?
    A — Please refer to Admission Process for more information.
  • Q — How can parents get involved?
    A — Upon acceptance to MPA, there are countless ways for parents to get involved in life on campus, no matter what your time commitment is. We look for ways to involve parents and would not be the school we are without our parental support.
  • Q — Will my child feel welcome as a new student to MPA?
    A — Many activities are planned to help all children and new families with the transition into MPA. All new incoming students in grades K-8 are paired with a buddy student during the summer before entering the school. We try to match personalities and interests in making buddy assignments. In Upper School, social activities are thoughtfully planned. Students and faculty are very welcoming and curious about new additions to our family, and genuinely enjoy having new students in their classroom. MPA is, without a doubt, one of the most welcoming and inclusive environments you will ever experience.
  • Q — How can I afford an independent school education?
    A — Please refer to Tuition, Financial Aid & Scholarships for more information.
  • Q — Do you provide transportation to the school?
    A — Our families make their way to MPA via three methods: their own personal transportation, busing, and carpooling. Additional information on busing can be found here. While carpooling cannot be guaranteed and depends on many factors, MPA will make every attempt to help new families connect with existing families to share resources.
  • Q — How firm are the admission and financial aid deadlines?
    A — These deadlines allow for the maximum consideration for each applicant for either admission and/or financial aid funding. New applications for admission and financial aid will be considered as they are received after these respective deadlines and will be based on a space- and/or funds-available basis. Please contact the Office of Admission with any questions.
