    Mooresville Christian Academy means the world to me. A school where they encourage parents to be involved with their children's education. The staff takes there time to make sure each and every child is doing their very best to succeed in life skills. Not only do they make education a priority but they are building strong character to help these children to be productive person's in society. I have seen my shy daughter blossom into a beautiful young lady trying things I thought she would never do and have the courage to try even more difficult task. Education is not just about what you read from a book or give back on test but what you take with you for the rest of your life. That is what the staff at MCA tries to accomplish everyday to help our children grow mentally physically spiritually and to have strong Godly and good traits in their live. As a parent I am grateful that I have a school that is the perfect extension of my home. I can mold her train her even teacher her but when you have a caring staff that wants the best for your child as much as you do there is no better combination that MCA.

    There are many wonderful things about MCA. It's hard to know where to start. As with all schools the education the kids are getting is important. MCA does an exceptional job in educating my kids. What I like the most is the individual attention the kids get. The school is a Christian school. The love of God shines forth in all they do from the songs sung in PreK all the way up. The teachers display christian attitudes and expect the same from the kids. So you not only get a great education but they live out and teach biblical principles at the same time. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!

    Our family has only been at MCA for one year but for this year the school staff and teachers have all been fantastic. I love the small class ratio of each of my children in school. I look forward to many more years of my children attending this school. In every area I have found teachers staff and even other parents so willing to help and come alongside me in any given situation good and bad. The teachers are loving and concerned for each of their students. And each time I've had a concern over one of my children they have taken time sometimes unscheduled to attend to my concerns. And the office staff have been the same way! I love this school and all that work here as well as the other parents. It is a great community to raise my children in.

    My husband and I are so please the Lord led us to MCA. We have been nothing but please with the whole staff. Each one of them go above and beyond the call of duty to guide direct teach and love each and every student. MCA is an A+ school in every category.

    I went to this school for many years and I loved it! I still go back to visit with teachers and younger friends. The teachers and staff are so nice and really try to help every student. The academics are quite high especially compared to some of the public schools nearby. It is a small school but new students fit in well perhaps even because it is so small. I had many friends who were new in the later grades and they made lots of friends quickly and I'm still in touch with them. Being a small school pretty much your whole class is a big group of friends. This can either be a good or bad thing. Personally I love this school and still miss its atmosphere sometimes!

    We love MCA! I highly recommend this school. We had our daughter tested into PreK early as she is ahead of the game. They were happy to evaluate her and to work with our family to get her into the school. She has done absolutely wonderfully and the teachers and staff are fantastic. The other students are polite and friendly to everyone. They have several opportunities to get involved and a lot of school activities and functions. It feels like a family. We are so fortunate to have found MCA!

    My daughter just started first grade at MCA this year and being a single mom it's a huge sacrifice for me but after going to the school and meeting the teachers other parents etc I feel as I've made the very best decision for her schooling needs. The one thing I love about MCA is that the faculty is so loving and caring and everything is so family oriented. You can go there at any time to talk to someone to check up on your child eat lunch with them etc. I'm just overwhelmed by how much pride the teachers take in their role in our childs lives. It's just overall amazing and I couldn't feel more blessed to be able to have her attend there. I could easily tell people it's the best place for your child.

    The atmosphere at the school has improved greatly. We were in a period of change a couple of years ago but things seem to be much better. The teachers are still great. Parental volunteering is much encouraged. The sports program has grown a lot in the past year and the music and arts programs are pretty good too. The teachers coaches and staff are a group of dedicated Christians who are serious about providing a good well-rounded education with everything centered around the Bible. You know up front what to expect which is really nice. I highly recommend this school. We make sacrifices to be able to send both our children here so we obviously think it is worth it.

    Presently we educate both of our children at MCA. We are very pleased with the quality of the education the facility and the teachers. The administrator is excellant. The curriculum is challenging and the Jr. Hi Science and technology areas are very strong. Great school for the price. You could pay a lot more and get a lot less.

    My daughter has attended M.C.A. since she began kindergarten at 5 years old now she is 12 and a seventh grader. We want the freedom of being Christians even in school so that is our primary reason we started her out at M.C.A. as time has passed we are very secure with the educational format. We have a tremendous faith in the teachers adminisitrating and all of the staff that work with our child every day. Parents can volunteer to help out any time which I believe brings a tighter bond with my daughter and myself.The M.C.A. continues to be a blessing to our family.
