My daughters attended MCA from PreK through 6th grade. They had a strong academic foundation, a firm Biblical foundation and were surrounded by teachers and staff that encouraged them, guided them and turned out to outstanding parenting partners! So glad you have the high school now so that children can spend their entire academic careers in your environment. Thank you MCA!
