A Message from our Principal


Dear Parents and Families, 

Manhattan Christian Academy is a Preschool-11th grade school located in the Inwood neighborhood of Upper Manhattan. MCA offers a strong, Christian education to students and families who value both the Word of God and instruction that reflects a Biblical worldview. We are an open enrollment, mission-minded school. The staff, faculty, and board at Manhattan Christian Academy love the Lord and feel called to serve in Christian education. We see every class and interaction with our students and families as an opportunity to glorify God and further His kingdom.

At MCA, the overwhelming atmosphere is one of family. Our students and their families feel loved, appreciated, and listened to. As we look towards unprecedented times in our city and world, our faith is our resting place. It is also our starting place for action. We have a unique call to be a light and a beacon of hope for the gospel; first, individually in the lives of our students, secondly to their families, and finally to our community.

We count it a privilege and honor to teach the Bible in all we do and to work diligently to reflect God and His truths in our assemblies, concerts, sports, extracurricular activities, events, and more. And as our world changes, we look forward to the work ahead of us to do more and more to honor God, share His good news, and engage our community.

Please join us in this mission to educate New York City children to serve and lead by knowing God and understanding His world.

Be blessed, 

Manuela Katt
