Applicants must have a 3.0 GPA on their most recent report card, and ITBS or (other nationally normed standardized test scores) in the 75% or above percentile on both reading and mathematics. Parental commitment to the program is important, and students are required to abide by the school unified dress code. Admission packets must be mailed or personally delivered to MCAA. Submit one application per child. Incomplete application packets will not be processed.
All MCAA students’ transition from fifth grade to the Sixth Grade Magnet Program at Marietta Sixth Grade Academy.
Guidelines/ExpectationsRegistration of a student indicates that parents or guardians have accepted the responsibility to provide the necessary support, guidance and involvement to foster the best possible learning for each child. We expect parents and students to comply with the following expectations. These expectations provide the basis for the parent contract that must be signed upon acceptance to the magnet school.
Admissions CriteriaStudents who apply to the magnet program must have a 3.0 (or higher) grade point average (GPA) in their core academic subjects while scoring at or above the 75th percentile in reading and math on the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS).
Enrollment StandardsIn order to remain enrolled in the magnet program, students must maintain academic, behavioral, and attendance standards.
Academically, students must maintain a 3.0 (or higher) grade point average (GPA) in all subjects throughout the year. A student who does not maintain the academic performance criteria is placed on probation for one semester. Students who do not have a 3.0 GPA after two consecutive semesters must exit the magnet program and enroll at his/her zoned school.
A student that is not upholding behavioral standards is placed on a behavioral contract. The purpose of the contract is to provide further collaboration between the school and home in an effort to desist any negative student behaviors. After the contract period, a student that fails to meet the behavioral expectations must exit the magnet program and return to his/her zoned school.
Students are expected to attend school every day, to arrive promptly and remain throughout the scheduled hours. The parent agrees to schedule appointments outside school hours. Excessive absences and/or tardies will result in the student being placed on attendance probation for one semester and possibly exited from the program for excessive absences or tardies.
