MCA’s mission is to support our parents in their God-given task of preparing their children:

  • To achieve the character and academic excellence necessary to succeed in their lives for God’s glory.

  • To serve God with purity and disciplined lives.

  • To serve others with love.

We have identified 15 spiritual and academic standards that enable us to teach and fulfill our mission statement.  We call these standards ESLRs:  Expected Schoolwide Learning Results.  As we fulfill the following standards, we accomplish our goals in 4 areas:  Spiritual, Self-development, Social, and Scholastic.
