Special Learning Programs

Mecklenburg Area Catholic Schools (MACS) offers several special needs programs to meet the needs of students with disabilities. The self-contained programs that are offered are described below. There is a separate application process for being considered for these programs. Parents will be required to provide a current full psychological evaluation as part of the application process.
