The MAC helps students and families from immigrant and refugee communities navigate the enrollment and assessment process. We want to make these transitions as seamless as possible.

Please note that students can enroll at any time either at their neighborhood school or at the MAC. However, every year we have a Summer Registration window to speed the enrollment process during August. For more information please go to the following link: Registration of New Students Who May Speak a Language Other Than English.
