"That the generation to come might know Him..." Psalm 78:6

Honor Code

Jesus Christ is the reason that Metrolina Christian Academy exists as a school. It is essential that we consider all of our actions, speech, and conduct as to whether or not they bring glory to God. This truth is contained in 1 Corinthians 10:31 which declares: “Whether we eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”

We have also strategically placed this truth in our school logo with the phrase “AD Majorem Dei Gloriam”. This phrase means “To the Greater Glory of God.” We have chosen this phrase as our Code of Honor and a concept that we as a school community will seek to embrace in all that we do. This Code of Honor is foundationally built on God’s Word and the idea of our school community working always “To the Greater Glory of God.” 

This document will serve as a guidepost to all stakeholders within the Metrolina community- students, parents, and faculty to unify us in both perspective and purpose.

Components of the MCA Code of Honor:

 

Every member of the MCA community will be challenged to understand and commit to our school’s mission. The mission of Metrolina Christian Academy is, “To lovingly lead and equip students for Kingdom living.”

Key Concepts of the Mission is to:
  • Provide Christ-like love to all we encounter
  • Promote a Biblical worldview
  • Pursue excellence in education
  • Partner with our families in providing Kingdom Education

 

All students and staff are challenged to focus on an eternal perspective. Colossians 3:2 commands us to “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” In order to effectively change our perspective to an eternal one, we must continually challenge students and staff to pursue the mind of Christ. Philippians 2:5 commands us “To let this mind be in you; which was also in Jesus Christ.”

Key Concepts of the Mindset is to:
  • Pursue an eternal mindset versus an earthly one
  • Pursue a constant attitude of gratefulness
  • Be others-centered, selfless and servants
  • Have our conversations always be wholesome, professional, and appropriate ("Only let your conversation be as it becometh the Gospel of Christ.")

 

We will encourage all students and staff to leave a mark for Christ’s sake not only in all whom we come in contact with but also in all that we endeavor to do. The Biblical foundation for this pursuit is found in Philippians 3:14. That verse declares: “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

Key Concepts of the Mark

     A.  The Mark on People 
  1. We will intentionally share our faith with others.
  2. We will seek to treat all people with dignity and respect.
  3. We are inclusive rather than exclusive.
  4. We recognize that simple actions such as a smile, friendly greeting, hand shake, and eye contact demonstrate respect, care, and are others-centered.
     B.  The Mark on Programs 
  1. We will seek to create a culture of excellence in all programs. (Academic, extracurricular, service, Chapel, etc.)
  2. We will encourage student and staff participation in the life and culture of the school’s programs.
  3. We will teach our students and staff that God made some to love the arts, some to love athletics, and some to love academics, or a combination of all.
  4. We will teach that supporting one another in these areas creates unity and friendship. It makes our school more complete when all of these programs succeed.
     C.  The Mark on Property 
  1. We will instruct and encourage our students to have the utmost respect for the environment, the school’s facilities, and equipment. This stewardship principle carries over into all areas of each individual’s life.
