Admission Process

Selecting a school for your child is an important step towards shaping his or her future. Thank you for considering MDCA! We would like to assist you in reaching your goals and dreams for your children.

Top Reasons Families Choose MDCA:

  • Academics — MDCA offers college prep, AP, Honors, and on-campus dual enrollment courses
  • Athletics — A variety of athletics teams are offered for students beginning in 6th grade
  • Warm, welcoming environment
  • Christ-Centered Education that includes daily chapel and Bible classes

We are currently processing applications for the 2024-2025 school year. 

Limited seats for qualified candidates are available in 2nd grade, 5th grade, and advanced classes in 6th-12th grades. Due to competitive applicant wait pools, submitting an application does not guarantee admission, even if the admission criteria are met. Please call the Enrollment Management Office at 352-720-0355 for updates or if you have any questions.

Wait Pool

Students who are accepted but not enrolled due to limited classroom space will be included in a pool of accepted applicants for that grade level. We value small class sizes and have a predetermined classroom capacity for every grade level in our school. The wait pool process helps to achieve our goal of optimal classroom capacity when an opening becomes available. We will keep families in the wait pool posted if a seat becomes available. Please note that we always welcome students to reapply next season if we cannot offer them admission from the wait pool.

We understand choosing the right school for your family is exciting and significant. Please read through the admission process and criteria below as you consider Mount Dora Christian Academy.

The Admission Process

This school as beautiful as it is on the outside, if not more beautiful on the inside! The hard work the teachers, staff and parents put into making this the best place to grow academically and spiritually is unmatched. The community that surrounds this school is amazing!
