All students of Mt. Zion Christian Academy must be accepted for admissions for the next school year. Acceptance is not automatic and requires us to make sure that each student’s best interest is considered and to ensure that we can provide for the needs of the students for whom we admit.

You may come by the school front office and complete an admissions packet. The packet must be completed and returned to the Office by July 28, 2023 or until all vacancies are filled. If you move during the summer, please call the office, and let us know your change of address. The school secretary will be available most of the summer. The following documents are needed:

  • 2023-2024 Application
  • Student Clinic Card
  • Emergency Medical Release
  • Photo Release Form
  • Release of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity
  • Copy of Student’s Birth Certificate
  • Copy of Physical (Kindergarten and New Students)
  • Copy of Immunization Record (Kindergarten and New Students)
  • Tuition Contract or Copy of Scholarship Award Letter
  • New Student Transcripts and Report Card
  • IEP or 504 plan if applicable
  • Copy of Social Security Card for Parent and Student

If you are a new parent, please call to schedule your appointment with admissions, no later than July 14, 2023. Failure to make your scheduled appointment will disqualify your child from admissions to MZCA. Notification of your status will be mailed on or before August 1, 2023. If you have questions, please call our office.

Current parents, you may already have some of these documents on file, however, we will need an updated application and any missing documents.
