We love MCA. This is our first year at MCA, and we truly are excited about big things happening here! Not only are they renovating their facilities, making them so attractive while functional, the teachers here are so genuinely sweet and love the Lord with all their hearts! There's a genuine interest in each student and a desire to see them succeed! We truly believe that success starts from the top down when it comes to a school. The administrator has such a positive attitude with a great vision for the school. His personal touch is seen all the way down to the classroom into the lives of the teachers that reach to the students. From academics to activities, I know that they desire the best for my little girl. They desire for her not only to learn reading, writing, and arithmetic, but their greatest desire is for her to love God with all her heart and to live it out in her daily life. This encompasses everything that we as a family want for our children, and so it is extremely easy to fall in love with a school that is working alongside us as parents to achieve the same desired goals! We are blessed to be part of the MCA family this year!

Both of my daughters have attended MCA for 3 years, and I am so pleased with their growth and accomplishments on so many levels! I have never had to wonder whether or not my daughters` teachers loved my girls and were dedicated to their growth. Probably my favorite thing about MCA is the family atmosphere that permeates the school. The staff and faculty create a wonderful spirit of unity between them and with the parents. MCA has been a huge blessing to our family!

We Love MCA! Our son started attending 4 years ago from public school, and the difference is remarkable. The time taken with our child to get him up to a level with the class was evident. God is truly moving in this place.

I'm a teacher, a parent, and currently the principal at Martinsburg Christian Academy. MCA has a rich heritage of Christian education for almost 50 years. We are a school that strives to serve and honor the Lord Jesus Christ. We have a superb team of teachers that serve some of the choicest parents and students around this area. There is a family-feel here, and we like it that way. It's a joy to serve the Lord at MCA!
