Mount Zion Christian Academy

  • "Mount Zion Christian Academy exists as a ministry of Mount Zion Baptist Church to provide quality education (K-3 through Grade 12) that is distinctively Christian while pursuing academic excellence in every discipline of study.
  • We strive to be salt and light to our culture, producing champion leaders for Jesus Christ.
  • Mount Zion Christian Academy recognizes that God has given the primary and ultimate responsibility for training and educating a child to his or her parents.
  • Since MZCA is a support ministry for the home, it is expected that each student's parents/legal guardians be committed to the involvement in their child's education, faithfully supporting the school with their time, effort, encouragement, and financial resources.
  • All parents/legal guardians also need to be in harmony with the aims and purposes of MZCA.".
