Admission to MCP Middle and High School in Santa Cruz is currently open and applications are being accepted. Acceptance is determined after consultation with parent, teacher, and/or support professional recommendation. Starting time for entering MCP is as flexible as possible.
A visit (or a shadow day) where a potential student participates in a day of classes, and consultation with parents and adults who work with a student, are the best way to determine appropriate fit and start times for a student. Contact us to schedule a visit.
Admission documents must be completed for consideration. Kindly fill out the paperwork for the school year in which you are applying, and bring it to MCP Middle and High School. Call or email for forms.

We’re often asked how long it takes to join the MCP program. MCP has rolling enrollment so that families can transition their child into MCP whenever it is a good time for that individual child. Our philosophy about mid-year transfers is, “If it is not working, why keep doing the same thing?” So, we welcome transfer students at any time of year. Many families need support for the transition and the process will take as long as it needs to in order to create a smooth transition for the student.
In special circumstances, we have been able to bring a new student into our program very quickly if all of the paperwork and records are together. Bottom line: 2 days to several weeks. We will always do our best to meet the needs of your child. Click here for a checklist of the MCP Middle & High School Admissions process.
