Students are admitted on the basis of their desire and the support of their parents for a Christ-centered education. Attendance should be considered as a privilege and may be forfeited by any student/parent who is not in harmony with either the rules or the spirit of the school.
Marquette Manor Baptist Academy, as a ministry of Marquette Manor Baptist Church, admits students who are submissive to our philosophy and program of education without regard to race, color, national and ethnic origin to all 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 or ethnic origin in administration of its admissions policies, educational policies, and other school-administered programs.
After an initial review of a school information packet, interested parents should make arrangements for an interview with the school administrator (or designee). The purpose of the interview is to present the school's philosophy and unique opportunities to the parents and prospective student. Ample opportunity will be given for questions and a tour of the facilities will be taken. Therefore, we require the parents to bring the prospective student with them to this interview. Please bring all academic records available with you (report cards, standardized testing results, high school transcript, etc.). Once the interview is complete, parents will receive registration forms.
A student will be considered for admission to Marquette Manor Baptist Academy after the submission of an application. Parents must provide a copy of their child’s birth certificate to be considered for enrollment. Up-to-date immunization records are also required.
When all forms have been properly submitted and all required fees are paid, the student will be contacted for admission through a letter of acceptance from the administration.
Prospective five-year-old kindergarten students (K5) must be five on or before September 1st of the school year. Prospective first grade students must be six years old on or before September 1st of the school year.
A student who has been expelled or denied enrollment from another school may be required to wait for a period of one year from the date of expulsion before he can be considered for admission on a probationary status.
The secondary education takes a more internal focus on the heart as a child moves toward adulthood. The teenage years bring growth in many dimensions. Life-long actions (habits) and attitudes (value systems) form in conjunction with the growth of mind and body. This spiritual development, the soul’s growth in grace, is a major dimension of the ministry we share with your home and church.
Understanding that unity of authority in the lives of a teen is essential to avoid confusion, rebellion, or bitterness in young people, we require students in grades 7-12 to give a clear testimony of salvation through Jesus Christ. In addition, one of the parents may be required to do the same. That testimony will be given verbally to the administrator or designee in the secondary interview session.
In addition, we require that at least one parent of our secondary students, as well as the student, attend on a weekly basis the regular meetings of a church similar in doctrine and practice as Marquette Manor Baptist Church or allow their children to join and regularly attend MMBC. Churches involved in the charismatic movement, Contemporary Christian Music (CCM), or neo-evangelical fellowship will not qualify. A form verifying this practice will be filled out first semester, requiring the signature of your pastor or his designee.
Students who plan to change churches should notify the administration and verify that attendance at the new church meets qualifications for enrollment at Marquette Manor.
