This is an excellent private Christian elementary academy. I now have 2 children in the school here. The curriculum is of a very high standard. Using multiple curriculum's allows my children the ability to learn in different ways. The focus on God in my children's life is excellent and paramount not only for them but our community. The class sizes are smaller in some cases but this is why we chose to go to a private academy. If you are interested in your child getting a premier education while having God be a focus in their lives you have found a great school. Private academies should challenge our children. I have close personal friends that are elementary teachers. All have stated the curriculum in math, reading and writing are one grade level above public schools expectations. If your main focus is schools that are larger and offer more social scenes and activities this school will come up "small" only because it is. Just depends on what you are looking for.

MCA offered many opportunites for my Kindergartener to succeed. She learned Latin, Addition, Subtraction and has improved dramatically in reading. This is a fantastic school! You can't beat the price over other full-day Kindergarten programs and the convienence of the optional before-care and after-care programs.

The teachers and staff at MCA go above and beyond for their students and their families. You can tell they love children and what they do. I love that they offer a second language at such a young age as well as computer, gym and music.

I would highly recommend MCAE to any family lookin to provide an enhanced education for their child. MCAE offers excellent curriculum, christian foundation, and fabulous centers to build a strong foundation for every child. The teachers, principal, and entire staff are professional, leading, and loving. The tuition rates are the most competitive around! You can not find a better education for your child then MCAE.

My boys went to MCA for kindergarten. They loved it and we were really happy with all aspects of the school. They have ended the year being able to fully read! The full day program was perfect for my schedule and we used the high quality aftercare a couple times a week. My boys were in two different classes and we loved both teachers. They also participated in the afterschool Spanish program. We got a $900 credit from the state for each boy because we lived more then two miles from the school and did not receive a bus.

Both of my childrent attended MCAE, and they are both excelling in all academics. The staff is top notch. They even offer private voice and music lessons immediately after school. My 6 year old has excelled in singing to the point of doing solos in school concerts as well at Church. The music teacher is amazing as well as all the teachers and staff at MCA Elementary School.
