MCA Mission Statement
At MCA, our mission is to bring the spirit of learning to life. We serve children from age 3 through Kindergarten, providing a solid start for children going on to other Christian educational organizations or the public education system. We provide a Christ centered and child friendly environment, highly qualified and loving teachers, and an engaging curriculum. We then adjust our curriculum to meet the unique needs of each child. By offering a Christian atmosphere that fosters creativity and joy, we can carry out our mission of “bringing the spirit of learning to life.”
MCA Statement of Faith
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which He has called you.” Ephesians 1:17-18
We are a multi-denominational Christian school that believes the Bible is the true, Holy, and inspired word of God. We teach the entire Bible, focusing on the major characters, themes, and principles. It is our prayer that children who do not yet know Jesus will be introduced to Him here, and those that do will come to know Him better.
MCA focuses on these common goals for every child:
• Teaching God in everything
• Showing God’s love in all of our actions
• Helping parents navigate raising a child from a Biblical perspective
• Using every moment we have with children to ground them in their faith
Do you believe your children are receiving an education equal to the potential God has placed within them?
At MCA, we strive every day to provide a rigorous and loving learning environment that recognizes the enormous and unlimited potential that each child possesses. We believe that God has planted the seeds of His divine nature in the hearts and minds of each individual.
Therefore, the role of the parent and teacher is to get involved in organic farming. Organic farmers tend to a small plot of land, hand- plow it and till it. They walk frequently over the soil, nurturing it and weeding it. Farmers engaged in this approach tend to each tender plant with care, coaxing the greatest yield from each one. And they know and pray that God will produce a good harvest in its due season. This type of organic farming simply can’t be done from the comfortable seat of a tractor. Teachers in classical schools must get dirt under their fingernails. Nurturing the seeds of greatness and leadership in children must be accomplished hands-on. The classical, Christian school is carefully designed for such a job as this.
