Welcome to MRCS!

About MRCS

As you begin looking at church school coverings, you will find that each one is unique in its fee structure, its requirements, and its benefits, so your task becomes one of finding a covering that fits the needs and goals of your family. Some people want a covering that makes them legal and then leaves them alone. Others want a covering that offers group activities and a framework of support and accountability.

For enrollment with Moffett Road Christian School, you pay a one-time (as long as you maintain enrollment with us) registration fee of $50 per family. Tuition is $175 for the first student and $10 for each additional student per year. We require membership in the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) at our group rate of $100 per year.

We assign each family to a cell group, and your cell group leader becomes another source of information and encouragement. Sometime during the first quarter of your first year with us, your cell group leader will take a look at your lesson plan book to make sure that your questions are answered and that everything is headed in the right direction. You will turn in grades online quarterly.

Students in grades 3 and above must take standardized tests at the end of their first year with us, choosing either the Stanford or the IOWA test in the spring. All students test in 3rd, 5th, and 8th grades, though many families choose to test annually. High school students may choose to take the ACT, PSAT or SAT to satisfy the testing requirement.

We require that you attend at least 4 meetings during the course of the year, preferably one a quarter, and we offer something every month. In even-numbered months, we hold a faculty-wide meeting at the church. In odd-numbered months, the cell groups meet. Sometimes that meeting takes place in the cell leader’s home, sometimes at a restaurant for a mom’s night out, and sometimes at a park or the ice cream parlor so the children can attend, too.
Each family performs one volunteer service during the course of the year. That could mean serving refreshments at a faculty meeting, helping with a field trip, or working in the library. If you have a degree, you can choose to proctor the standardized tests we require in the spring. For those families who prefer it, we do offer a volunteer buy-out, giving you the option to pay a $25 fee if circumstances prohibit you from volunteering.

Finally, because it is very important to us that our families are connected to a body of faith for support and encouragement, we send a pastoral letter of reference to someone on the church staff of newly enrolling families. That could go to the lead pastor, the youth pastor, or anyone on staff who knows your family well.

New families may enroll throughout the year with administrator approval. Interested families may contact our Administrator Retta Franklin by completing the contact form and brief questionnaire, found here.
