Manhattan Christian Academy educates urban children to succeed in life through Christ-centered quality education that builds character, knowledge, and purpose.
The purpose of Christian education is to show the student the need for a personal saving relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and to nurture, admonish, and encourage the student to live in conformity with the revealed will of God through a life of service wholly dedicated to and dependent upon God.
The process of Christian education requires the natural integration and consistent application of God's Word into every area of the school program.
Parents bear the sole responsibility for the education of their children.
The Christ-centered school is an extension of and support to the home and church in the teaching of children of spiritual and moral values and the academic skills necessary to live lives of obedience and fruitfulness.

School Reviews

I am an alumni of this school. I''ve been there since kindergarten. I love this school. The teachers and staff are very kind. You feel very welcomed. Everyone knows your name. They offer after school tutoring, if you don''t understand something, they will help you until you get it. They also have extra curriculum which is really fun. The spiritual aspect is the best. Every morning we get together as a school and have a time of worship and devotion. I still go back and visit.
