The Future of MCA

December 04, 2015
By Rev. Rick Calloway

“Do your planning and prepare your fields before building your house.” Proverbs 24:27

As we prepare to turn the page for 2015 and look forward to the year 2016, I wanted to provide you with a small update as to the planning process for the future of Metrolina Christian Academy. Our administrative team has begun the planning process which will culminate in a new four year plan for our school that will lead us to the year 2020. We are calling this plan Vision 2020.

Vision 2020 will be a comprehensive plan that will address all of the key components of our program such as spiritual growth, academic enhancements, community focus, security  enhancements, and facility improvements.  Below, I have provided you with a small glimpse of some of what we are planning for the future of MCA.
