EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT
Metrolina Christian Academy believes that the Bible is the inspired, infallible word of God; the source of absolute truth through which a biblical worldview is formed and the standard for living. Christian Education is a comprehensive educational program where all disciplines are taught through the lens of scripture.
MCA employs teachers who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and provide developmentally appropriate activities that align with the school’s mission. We work with our families to provide an educational setting that nurtures each student’s spiritual, academic, physical, and emotional development. Our desire is to prepare students for the 21st century, and to send them out on mission for the kingdom of God.
