School Notes

  • Our MISSION is the directing of the process of human development towards God's objective for man: godliness of character and action. Mercer Christian Academy will strive to educate the whole child: spiritually, academically, and physically with a comprehensive program of Christ-centered Bible teaching, scriptural based curricula in all academic disciplines, and instruction in health and physical education for life long service to God. MCA will attempt to supplement and not supplant the home (which is God's "anointed" institution for all education) and the local Bible-believing church, working with these two to prepare children for whatever sphere of service the Lord would have that child enter upon graduation: college, vocational/trade training, Bible school, the world of work, the family, or vocational Christian service.
