Rolling Admissions

For the convenience of our students, we offer rolling admissions based on space availability during the academic school year. Unlike most public and private schools, as an independent private school, we are able to offer small classes and an individualized approach. We are able to manage and monitor student progress closely, alleviate stress, and integrate new students easily.

Students seeking an alternative to large public and charter schools, private schools, parochial schools, and homeschooling, often find MPS is just the right fit. Whether you are relocating or need to transfer schools, contact us.

Memorial Private School is accredited by Cognia/SACS, AdvancED. This enables students are able to transfer credits from other schools. Our academic classes are all fully transferable. We make admissions simple for families, so contact us to begin the process.

Admission Criteria

At Memorial Private School, we seek to enroll students who will fully benefit from the calm culture and research-based education we provide. We are open-minded, but selective during the application process to ensure our school is a solid match.

We look at each individual when determining admission and we have a strong record of success with a broad spectrum of students that fall within our mission. In particular, we stand out and shine in educating students who are highly motivated to make a change, possess unique gifts or talents, and students needing a lower stress learning environment.

We accept a small percentage of students with mild to moderate learning issues; and we may require 504 or IEP documents to make a final determination. Please note that we are not equipped to accept students with current legal issues, drug/alcohol, major psychological issues, or significant behavioral or disciplinary issues.

Academic Promise: College bound students tend to perform extremely well with our extended support and college planning services. While over 95% of our graduates typically matriculate to public and private colleges or universities, some students do choose different paths following graduation.

Good Citizenship: Students without significant disciplinary or unexcused attendance issues are encouraged to apply.

High Commitment: We only admit students who are dedicated and committed to our high standards.

Frequently Asked Questions

As a private independent school,, Memorial Private School is accredited by SACS (The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), which is the same agency that accredits most schools in the Southeast region of the U.S. All of our classes will help your student gain credits that will be acceptable to any university or college. 

All of our teachers are degreed in the subject area they teach and many hold graduate degrees. They are carefully selected and hired based on their unique achievements and abilities, as well as their commitment to inspire students. 

From the average to the gifted and talented, Memorial Private School is receptive to a broad spectrum of learning styles, talents, and abilities. We have students who come from large public schools with 1,000+ people in their grades, IB schools, a variety of parochial and private schools, and from home-school environments. 

Whether a student is under stress or feeling challenged socially or academically, we address social issues, learning differences and styles, and offer a low stress learning environment for students to flourish. 

If your child has a learning difference in the mild to moderate range, we are successful in working with dyslexia, dysgraphia, high functioning autism, slow processing, and other learning differences.

All of our families feel that a smaller environment, with teachers and staff that truly know their students and their needs, makes our school feel like a safe and healthy haven for learning.

Because of our small group, individualized instruction, and popular summer school, Memorial Private School, as an independent school, is able to offer rolling admissions throughout the year. This is especially helpful for transfer students and families relocating to the area. We operate on a standard August to May structured year, while providing flexibility for our students’ schedules.

Please review the Tuition and Fees as posted and feel free to contact us for details. We will review and discuss questions when you contact us and at the time of your appointment. We do offer limited financial assistance and payment plan options; however, please do not apply for aid until officially accepted. 

Please contact us to review the application steps and the required documentation prior to your campus appointment. We offer a simple streamlined process to help families expedite the process. 

We do adhere to a schedule; however, we make every effort to accommodate your work schedule for tour-only appointments, full appointments, and shadow days. Please contact us by phone or by email to schedule.  

This varies. Sometimes the parents prefer to receive all pertinent information prior to having their child visit the school. Please contact us to discuss the best approach for your family. 

During your visit, we will discuss your student’s previous school experiences and answer any questions that you may have about our school. We want to learn more about your family and child. We will review student rules and policies, discuss our research-based curriculum, and take a campus tour.

If all parties agree that Memorial Private School is a good fit for the student, then we will schedule a “shadow day.” On a shadow day, the potential student will come in clothing that is similar to our uniform and sit through a day of classes. The student will then complete an assignment in each class for the purposes of assessment and get a chance to meet the teachers and other students.

We are happy to have our parents contact you about their experiences with Memorial Private school. We have a very active parent club that will provide support and a sense of community when you become a part of our school.

After the shadow day, the administration will meet with the staff. Based on their feedback, we will determine whether to offer enrollment or suggest a different school to the parents. Either way, parents will receive feedback. We are here to be of service to you and to help you determine if our school is the right match. 

We believe that students are often “over tested.”  During the shadow day, the work we give them to do often gives us a reasonable view of their strengths and abilities. The interviews with students and parents are the most helpful in addition to previous records and evaluations.

We do not require our students to take an entrance exam; however, we do require a writing sample. Testing will mean more to us, as well as the student and family, after we get to know the student. If you have any test scores available from previous schools, feel free to include them in your application packet.
