PMA admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

TRANSFER FAMILIES AND PROBATION PERIOD
The following admissions guidelines apply to students transferring into PMA at any grade level.
Parents or guardians of students seeking admission to PMA must present copies of the most recent report card, standardized test results, IEPs, 504s, and other evidence of achievement from the last school attended. You may ask your child's current school for copies of academic documents. Prospective students and parents will meet with the Principal and/or Assistant Principal to discuss admission.
PMA, respecting the rights of all involved, retains its authority to refuse admittance to, or ask parents to withdraw, at any time, any student whose special needs cannot be met within the school setting, or whose presence would seriously impair the development of Christian education. The decision to accept a student is the responsibility of the Principal and/or Assitant Principal. Ordinarily, new students are accepted on a probationary basis of one semester.
During the probation period, parents are encouraged to maintain communication with their child’s teachers. At the end of the probationary period, if there are concerns, a conference will be held with the teachers, parents, Principal and/or Assistant Principal to decide whether to continue the probationary period or to withdraw the student from the school.
Families seeking admission to PMA who have outstanding financial obligations to other Catholic and private schools will not be accepted until those financial obligations are met.
