Dear MCA community and family,

I would like to say Hello, and thank you for your investment to Christian education.  I am truly humbled to have the opportunity to lead the Lower School in the intellectual and spiritual development of ourincredible children here at MCA.  We as a staff are dedicated to ensuring that your child has an engaged, uplifting, and challenging learning experience here on “The Deck”.  The banners that soar above us each day are a daily reminder to our teachers and students to live according to the Word of God.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” - Galatians 5:22-23

This is the foundation of our unique partnership between faculty and families working together for the Glory of God.  We as a staff are ready and excited to see the Lord work through our students as they are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed for effective service for the Lord in their lives.
