Admissions Policy
The open admission policy of Mother Teresa of Calcutta (MTC) Catholic School allows no person to be discriminated against on the basis of race, color or ethnic origin, nor is the staff hired or assigned on the basis of race, color or ethnic origin.

Although, we wish we could give admission to everyone that desires to come to MTC, there are several factors that may prevent us from offering your child admissions. Academics, our learning assessment, space availability, and/or our ability to meet the child’s academic and behavior needs. Priority is given to children who have brothers or sisters currently enrolled at MTC.
