My two sons are attending this school and it has changed their world. My children initially went to a public elementary school and going to MVCA has placed them in a very pure and comfortable environment that has great teachers and makes their learning experience the best. I would strongly recommend this school to any parent or guardian that wants their children to be educated in the safest and strongest academic environment.

This school has made such a difference in the lives of my children. I've never seen a place that "practices what they preach" more than this school. The staff are Christian in action, not just on paper. They exude Christ's love through every facet of the school. I see the difference in my children every day (and am frequently complimented on them!) They are honest, respectful, prayerful children and so much of that is from the school environment. The school is consistent in the enforcement of their policies. I am so thankful that this school exists, because it has positively shaped our lives and we are so much better for it.

My experience putting three children through MVCA (from K-12) was a very positive one throughout. The true partnership that the school/administration offers is priceless in a time when family units are struggling for a consolidated front. I always knew I had a voice at the school, and an ear to hear me there. Yes, the school is small, and some of the resources can seem somewhat 'limited' at times, but that closeness between teacher and student and the attention that each student is afforded with teacher/student ratios what they are is by far more important. All three of my children went on to college and excelled (Dean's listed over their 4 yrs at various State and Private Universities). They were more than prepared academically to enter the college scene. But beyond the academics, MVCA helped to form Good, Christian-living, morally grounded, intelligent young people that were better equipt to go out into the world and know their place in making a difference and living their life for Christ

My Daughter has been attending Mountain View Christian Academy for 3 yrs. They have given her the confidence and encouragement that I never expected. She loves going to school and has been an all A student for 2 yrs. They say they are blessed to have her, I say we are blessed for all they are teaching her and the person she has become. If your looking for an outstanding school, look no farther. Mountain View will be it.
