"Mount Zion Christian Academy exists as a ministry of Mount Zion Baptist Church to provide quality education (K-3 through Grade 12) that is distinctively Christian while pursuing academic excellence in every discipline of study.
We strive to be salt and light to our culture, producing champion leaders for Jesus Christ.
Mount Zion Christian Academy recognizes that God has given the primary and ultimate responsibility for training and educating a child to his or her parents.
Since MZCA is a support ministry for the home, it is expected that each student?s parents/legal guardians be committed to the involvement in their child?s education, faithfully supporting the school with their time, effort, encouragement, and financial resources.
All parents/legal guardians also need to be in harmony with the aims and purposes of MZCA."
