Registering for Catholic School
St. Mark Catholic School, Christ the King Catholic High School, and Charlotte Catholic High School are all a part of Mecklenburg Area Catholic Schools (MACS), a centralized, regional system of Catholic schools in the Charlotte area that includes nine schools. All admissions to St. Mark, Christ the King, and Charlotte Catholic are handled through the MACS Admissions Office. New students are admitted after the completion of testing administered by ABC Tutoring and Educational Services. The Director of Admissions for MACS and the school principals review records and testing information to determine acceptance. St. Mark, Christ the King, and Charlotte Catholic do not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, gender or religion. Priority for admission is given to Catholic students whose parents are participating Catholics in their parish.
Applications are made available in December and will be accepted at the beginning of January. The deadline for the Early Admission Period is Jan. 31. For additional admissions information, please contact the MACS Director of Admissions at 704-370-3273.
St. Mark Catholic Church Policy Regarding MACS
In order to be considered an active, participating member of St. Mark Parish and thus eligible for MACS tuition assistance and sacramental sponsor eligibility, St. Mark takes into account a family's or individual's ministry involvement and Mass attendance. Since weekly Mass attendance envelopes are the primary way we determine if parishioners are regularly attending Mass, we ask that if you can't make a financial contribution on a given Sunday that you still place your envelope in the collection basket so that we can record your attendance. If you are using Online Giving and Payment, please turn in your empty envelope to indicate your Mass attendance.
