Admissions Process

Academic Ability

The Academic Program at MCA is designed to challenge all students to think well and to work hard in preparation for high school and college entrance. English language proficiency is required.


We believe a child's education is enhanced by a creative, disciplined and orderly environment. We expect our students to reflect order in their appearance as expressed in our Dress Code and in social and academic interactions. We vigorously promote the Biblical virtues of kindness, reconciliation, politeness, respect, and self-discipline.
