Why Choose MCA

Deciding to change schools is never a simple undertaking.  Yet, when God is ordering your steps, you know HE will remove any obstacles and make the way plain.  That’s exactly what He did.  We can truly say that God has placed us here at Metrolina.  Our first year was phenomenal! Everyone here makes you feel welcomed and a part of the family.  We’re blessed to call Metrolina home and look with anticipation as to what God will continue to do at Metro!!!

-The Crenshaw Family

"When we first visited Metrolina our son said as we left, “This feels like home”, and that has proven to be the case. The way he is supported, prayed over and loved by the staff at MCA has given us so much comfort in knowing we made the best decision for for him and for our family. 

In his short time there he has made so many friends and in our opportunities to meet them we have been so impressed with the respectful, considerate and mature way these students present themselves. The focus on leadership and faith at MCA sure shines bright in their students. 

We are so thankful God led our family to MCA and we look forward to all that is to come in the years ahead."

-The Pennell Family

"We had a great public school option and never would have considered a private alternative until the COVID-19 situation. While COVID has been less than ideal for EVERYONE, I am thankful that it brought us to Metrolina and we plan to continue down this path of a Christian education for our girls. I knew without a doubt this was the answer for us. We cannot wait to have her sister join her at MCA in 2 years! 

Thank you for your service to our community, our children and most importantly to our Savior. "

- Michelle Lewis, MCA Parent

"In a world that is growing darker, we are so grateful for MCA teaching the light and love of Jesus. We know our children are not only learning the skills academically to be successful in life, but also being deeply rooted in the word daily. Their relationship with Jesus is what will carry them through their life here on Earth, and also bless them with an eternal life in Heaven." 

-The Simpson Family

"Athletics starts at the top with an unwavering commitment to Christ, supported by a high level of commitment to team and personal development. Winning matters not just on the scoreboard but winning the character battle by staying true to the character Christ calls them to have."

-Maggie Miller (MCA 2020 Graduate), Tommy Miller (MCA 2022 Graduate), and Annie Miller (MCA Student)

"Within my first few days at Metrolina, it was made clear that this school’s mission is to teach students about Scripture and raise youth to follow Christ, despite any force that tries to sway us from truth."

-Eliza Girard, MCA 2021 Graduate

"I really appreciate how faith driven all the teachers and coaches are and that they want to have a relationship with the students ."

-Luke Gaskins, MCA 2021 Graduate

"This is the place that I've referred to as my second home for ten years. I have come to a peace in knowing that I've been prepared not only spiritually, but intellectually. Why MCA? Because it has been truly blessed by God to further His kingdom."

-Haley Debnam, MCA 2018 Graduate 

We won’t ever regret the decision we made to send our six children to Metrolina. The love they’ve been shown and life lessons they've been taught will continue to influence them for years to come. So many teachers, administrators and coaches have poured into our children’s lives and we will be eternally grateful.

-The Edmisten Family

"There are so many reasons I could discuss why Metrolina makes a difference, but the main reason is something you would not get anywhere else.  Metrolina has a campus full of people who love Jesus.  I have personally witnessed the love and compassion the administration, teachers, and staff have for each and every child.  Children are not a number at Metrolina, they are family. My family has been prayed over, loved on, and truly experienced what it means to live out the life Jesus has taught us to live. You do not just attend Metrolina, you become part of family which will provide a lifetime of love."   

-Miranda Dyer, MCA Parent

Metrolina is such a blessing to our family! I know each day my children are at school they are loved on, prayed for, and encouraged to seek everything with a biblical worldview. They are challenged academically, but most importantly they are pointed towards Jesus. I have seen so much growth in my children and I know it’s because of the faithfulness of the staff and teachers at MCA!

-Erica Carpenter, MCA Parent

"We love sending our daughters to a school where we know they are genuinely loved and prayed for everyday. You can’t help but feel God's love the moment you step on the campus of Metrolina Christian Academy. The teachers and staff are all phenomenal! They all come together to not only help our daughters achieve great academic excellence, but most importantly they point them to Jesus Christ daily!"

-The Grandjean Family

"My son attended MCA’s early education program from the time he was 12 weeks old until age 5 and ready to go to kindergarten, at which time we decided to transition him to public school. He acclimated to public school just fine, but throughout his 6 years there, we couldn’t help but feel that something was missing. After much thought and prayer, we decided to re-enroll at MCA. I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions we’ve made.

The teachers truly care about him, and create a learning environment that he looks forward to being a part of everyday. He’s made new friends along the way and is enjoying the camaraderie that comes with playing middle school football. And most importantly, he is growing closer with God, thanks to the education, guidance and support he receives daily.  

Our son is thriving academically, socially, and in his relationship with the Lord. We are truly blessed to have found our way back to this school and can’t wait to see what else the Lord has in store. The future is bright!"

-Kelly Gullo, MCA Parent

"Matthew 6:21 says, 'Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.' Giving our children a Christian education is where our treasure is because they're our treasure. Because of that, it's where our heart is too. You are helping your child to become all that Christ has called them to be"

-The Lewis Family


"We are very thankful for MCA. What a blessing to have our faith and values reinforced at school."
