Mcc Academy

Building Character - Developing MInds MCC Academy is a parochial elementary institution, fully accredited by the State of Illinois.
The curriculum of the school is in line with the standards proposed by the ISBE. In addition, we offer a curriculum of Islamic Studies which includes a comprehensive program aimed at the explanation and implementation of Islamic practices and principles, as well as Quranic Arabic for understanding Quran.
The MCCA Council strives to ensure that the administration and the teaching staff are qualified educators who themselves are observant of Islamic values in their own lives.
It is fruitless in education to ask children to adhere to anything unless role models exist around them, showing not only that adherence to these ideals is possible, but also that direction, stability, peace, and happiness cannot be achieved otherwise.
MCCA provides instruction from preschool to 8th grades. The school keeps its goals and objectives as the heart of its curriculum.
To that end, the school developed academic programs in early childhood, elementary, and middle school similar to the Wilmette Public School District (39), the MCC Islamic Studies, Accelerated Reader, IQRA Preschool, and the Letter People curriculums. The Arabic and Islamic Studies Program is designed to go hand-in hand with the academic program to produce a student who is rooted in faith, ethical living, social responsibility, and worldly success.
