High School Placement

Mother Caroline Academy (MCA) provides students and their families with the guidance and support needed to transition into secondary school and beyond. The High School Placement Director assists students and their families throughout every aspect of the high school application process, including the financial aid process.  In guiding students through the application process, the Director helps the student and her family identify the student’s strengths and goals in order to help her find the “best-fit” school.
