NATIONAL JUNIOR HONOR SOCIETY
This is an academic honor society for those students who have been invited to participate. Grade levels eligible are 7th-9th for the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). The Metrolina Christian Academy Calloway Chapter of the NJHS requires a numeric average of 95 or higher in order to be invited to apply. Students must also have attended MCA for a full year to be eligible. Transfer NJHS students from another school can apply. Membership into NJHS will also be based upon careful consideration of scholarship, leadership, service, and Christian character by our faculty sponsors. Invitations to apply are sent to eligible students after the end of 2nd quarter each year. The annual NJHS Induction takes place in February.

Project Serve fulfills a need for service opportunities for parents, students, staff, and friends of the school that would impact Metrolina Christian Academy and our local community.
By following the model of servant leadership provided by Jesus Christ, MCA provides an opportunity for all to live out Ephesians 2:10 which states, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Project Serve has two main areas of service: service opportunities for families and student service projects.
