Out-of-District / Transfer Application Info



Out-of-District/Transfer Application Information:

2022-2023 School Year

Students who live out-of-district and wish to transfer into Mt. Vernon Schools must complete an online application during either of the designated windows listed below. Also, all students who are currently attending a Mt. Vernon school (excluding Mini-Marauder Preschool) and do not live within the school district boundaries are also required to submit an application during either of these selected windows to attend during the 2022-2023 school year. (If you live in any MVCSC enrollment area, you do NOT need to complete this application.) As Superintendent Dr. Parker has previously shared, once you are a Mt. Vernon student/family, those students who submit an application will remain part of the Mt. Vernon family, unless there are major discipline or attendance issues. Please note that Fortville Elementary, McCordsville Elementary, Mt. Vernon Middle School and the Mini-Marauder Preschool are currently closed to new transfer families.

Applications will be accepted during the following windows:

2022-2023 Out-of-District/Transfer Application is Now Closed

Window 1 - Friday, April 15 at 4 p.m. through Monday, April 25 at 8 a.m.

Window 2 - Friday, May 6 at 4 p.m. through Monday, May 16 at 8 a.m.

Please complete a separate form for each student requesting to attend Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation that currently lives outside the school district or that anticipates moving out of the district before the 2022-2023 school year begins. By completing this form you are entering the student below into the out-of-district/transfer pool and requesting to attend Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation during the 2022-2023 school year. This does not guarantee enrollment, but priority will be given to current out-of-district transfer students, their siblings/step-siblings, and employees' children.  All applicants will receive notice by June 17th, 2022.


  • All applications must be submitted online during either of the two application weeks and before the final deadline of Monday, May 16 at 8 a.m.
  • Applications are only for one school year, must be filled out for each child, and must be re-submitted each year.
  • Applying the first week instead of the second week does not increase your child’s chances of being approved. Offering two weeks allows the district to assess early numbers and possibly hire necessary teachers earlier in the hiring season.
  • All applications will be date/time stamped upon submission, processed in the order in which they are received, and considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • It is possible that NOT all applications for new Mt. Vernon families will be approved for specific buildings due to several considerations, including building capacity and class size. Please note that Fortville Elementary, McCordsville Elementary, Mt. Vernon Middle School and the Mini-Marauder Preschool are currently closed to new transfer families.
  • Employees' children and current out-of-district/transfer students (and their siblings/step-siblings) will have priority when reviewing applications.
  • If you live in one elementary school region and wish to attend a different elementary school, you do not need to fill out the application but rather request this with both elementary school principals via email. 
  • New this year, the Mini-Marauder Preschool out-of-district students do need to fill out an Out-of-District / Transfer application in one of the two windows listed above. 
  • Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation is accepting out-of-district/transfer students for the upcoming school year as adopted by Corporation Policy C125, and has closed four buildings to new Marauder applicants.
