School Reviews

MCA is an incredible, nurturing school environment. Most of the students are in sports, arts, etc. Everyone can find a place to belong. The center of everything is Christ--the classroom, and extra-curriculars. The academics are far superior to our experience in public school, even the AP and dual credit classes are better than the ones we experienced in MISD. Our children are learning how to study and learn. They will be prepared for success in college and life when they graduate from MCA.
