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. A committee determines which program would be most appropriate to meet the needs of the student. Tuition for these programs is higher due to the small size of the classes. Tuition assistance is available.
For more information about these programs contact Sissie Kilby, Admissions Coordinator at 704-370-3273 or email: SLKilby@charlottediocese.org.
