Admission FAQ

Q.
WHAT IS MCA’s EDUCATIONAL APPROACH?

MCA is committed to shepherding the hearts of students by providing a high quality Christ-centered, education. Read more about our Philosophy of Education.

Q.
IS MCA ACADEMY PRIVATE, CHARTER, OR PUBLIC SCHOOL?

MCA is definitely not a charter school.   We are a private, Christian school funded by tuitions, foundations, corporations, churches and individuals.  Charter schools are merely another variety of public school. They receive all their funding from the government and are subject to most of the same rules and restrictions of government schools. New York State currently prohibit devoting public funds to supporting faith-based schools.  (Find similar NYS Statute) In contrast, the Bible teaches us that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Respect and honor of God is the foundation for all learning at MCA. 

Q.
IS MCA ACCREDITED?

Yes, since 2011 MCA has been dually accredited by The Association of Christian Schools International and The Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.  In 1988 MCA registered with NYS Board of Regents (NYS Accreditation).

Q.
WHAT GRADES DO YOU OFFER AT MCA?

MCA is a Preschool-8 school.

Q.
WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT THE CURRICULUM AT MCA?

MCA uses a rigorous curriculum with a Christian world view in both Lower and Middle Schools.

Q.
ARE ALL OF MCA's TEACHERS AND STAFF CHRISTIANS?

More important than a school’s curriculum, facilities, or sports programs is the answer to the question: who are the men and women who are going to be teaching your child? Yes, all of our faculty and staff  make an affirmation of faith.  

  1. Great teachers make a great school.
  2. Students become like their teachers.
  3. Teachers are the “living curriculum” of a school.

In the lives of students, so much textbook content is forgotten; but the lessons that stay with them forever are the unspoken ones that come directly from the teacher, the “living curriculum.”

The purpose of MCA  is to spread a banquet of God-glorifying education for the youth of the city. Our curriculum is excellent and college preparatory, but what most excites us is that your son or daughter will have personal relationships with teachers who are devoted disciples of Jesus Christ.
