Welcome to Memorial Private High School Admissions Information!
MPHS (grades 6th – 12th) admissions is year-round, largely because we are self-paced, and also small enough to be able to manage the student’s progress closely.
Upon receiving your interest in the school by phone or email, we first discuss your overall goals for your child, and learn about your child in general, as you also learn more about the school. If we both think there may be a fit, then the next step is an interview. If possible, we find that it is best to talk with the parents first, and then meet with your child at the second interview.
Consideration for admission to Memorial Private High School truly leans more toward the ‘whole’ student, and family, than the testing. Because we are a small school, we work to ensure that every student admitted is “the right fit” for both the family and for the school and therefore we must be highly selective in whom we can take.
The prospective student has a few more staff interviews and at least one shadow day, where the candidate attends classes for a full day, and works directly with each teacher. If the shadow day is not possible, then we interview more in depth as much as possible. It is imperative to the student, family and our school family that this is a great decision for you! Our interviews generally do not cause anxiety – we want your child to get to know us and we are interested in their lives and the things they like!
After the initial interview, the family completes the application. In addition to the application, it is most helpful to bring the following documents to your next interview with our principal: your student’s most recent transcript (official or unofficial) and any testing information.
Once your student has been invited, you will need to submit the following to the Registrar in order for the admission process to be complete:
- A completed full application
- Shadow Day – assessment by each teacher
- Interviews with Dean of Students and Owners
- Official transcript from the student’s most recent school
- Medical authorization form
- Medical update form
- Immunization records
- Various forms for field trips and other standard information
- Student rules and policies signed by the student and parent/guardian
- Uniforms order
