CONSTRUCTION HAS STARTED.....In August 2021, MCA removed two modulars and initiated the ground breaking for the first of two new educational buildings. Our goal is to have our students in the new space for the start of the 2022-23 school year.
As we begin the 2021-22 school year, we are excited to move ahead with Phase 4 of our Limitless Building Campaign - our "PATH FORWARD". After pausing the project due to COVID-19, we are now back on track to continue with our vision to reshape our campus, expand our community, and enhance the quality of our programs so that the generation to come might know Him.
Our goal for the "PATH FORWARD" Phase 4 is two-fold in design. First, we will add two educational buildings to create more interactive and enhanced learning opportunities for middle and high school students, with a dedicated Art Lab and STEAM Lab. Next, MCA will focus on developing a track and field complex that will feature eight lanes and areas for all field events, plus provide additional green space for physical education classes.
The two educational buildings will add 17,300 square feet to our campus and the track and field complex develops an additional 7.33 acres. The goal for Phase 4 of the Limitless Building Campaign is to raise a minimum of $4.25 million.
- Educational Building #1 - $1.35 million
- Educational Building #2 - $1.2 million
- Track and Field Complex - $1.7 million
We envision two new classroom buildings that will create interactive, age-appropriate student meeting spaces, resulting in enhanced learning opportunities. We also envision an additional dedicated Art Lab and STEAM Lab that will allow us to be more efficient in training disciples of Christ who will influence their peers, neighborhoods, and communities for Christ.
Our vision for these buildings is to provide top quality learning spaces that more than adequately meet the needs of 21st century learners. These new buildings will enable us to dispose of modular classroom buildings.
Educational Building #1
This new building will be approximately 9853 square feet with 10 classrooms that will provide full programming for over 200 students in Middle School and High School. It will be located adjacent to the Jason Williams Activity Center and the older education building and eliminate the need for modulars E and F.
Educational Building #2
This building will add nearly 7500 square feet of educational space and include six classrooms, an Art Lab, and a STEAM Lab with robotics. It will be a two-story addition to the current older education building, making it possible to remove modulars B and C.
Track & Field Complex
The track and field will feature eight lanes for track and areas equipped for shot put, long jump, and all field events. The complex will also provide an additional green space for physical education and serve as another field space for the school. This complex will allow for our school to host regional and state track meets. It will be located in the area adjacent to the Lower School playground.
To accomplish this God-sized vision, it will require that each member of the Metrolina Christian Academy community get excited and committed to the vision God has for us as a school. We must come together and make a "PATH FORWARD" for the advancement of Kingdom education here at Metrolina!
God calls us to love Him with all our heart, soul, and mind. It is our desire as a school to raise up a generation that will impact the Kingdom of God. It is with that passion, that we believe in the vision God has given us to enhance our campus and expand opportunities for MCA students of all ages.
THE VISION - Track & Field Complex ($1.7 Million Project Total)
- Entrance Plaza to Track & Field Complex
- Donor Wall of Honor
- 8 Lane Track
- Areas for Field Events – Discus, Shot Put, Long Jump, Triple Jump, High Jump, Pole Vault
- New Football/Soccer Field and Green Space for PE Classes
- Field House for Concessions / Restrooms / Locker Rooms
- Children’s Play Area (already established/completed)
- Walkway Leading to Main Entrance
We are extremely blessed with wonderful facilities for many of our MCA programs because of the financial support of so many with in the Metrolina community/family.
But as we continue to pursue excellence and the mission of MCA continues to flourish, the lack of adequate facilities for track and field and limited green space for our physical education classes has reached a pivotal level for our school.
In the spring of 2010, MCA started its track and field program with a handful of students participating, and now more than 140 students are involved. Through the years, our students have practiced faithfully and with great results in the parking lots on our campus. The track and field program keeps growing and producing outstanding results, even though our students and community of supporters have yet to experience a home meet here at MCA. The addition of the track and field complex will provide for a dedicated space for our student-athletes to practice and to compete on their own ‘home field’, as well as host regional and state track meets.
Here at MCA, we desire to provide our students with a quality track and field facility, so they can pursue their God-given abilities and to expand the opportunities for physical education classes. And we need your help to build this nearly 7.5 acre facility, so we can strengthen and grow this part of our ministry.
We are grateful for your consideration in supporting the Metrolina Christian Academy Track & Field Complex.
- Varsity - $2,500
- All-Star - $5,000
- MVP - $10,000
- Circle of Champions - $25,000
- Ring of Honor - $50,000
- Hall of Fame - $100,000 (Opportunity to name track & field complex)
Contributions at these levels will be acknowledged on the Wall of Honor at the track and field complex. Gifts and/or pledges can be made through June 2023.
Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of pursuing excellence for our students and expanding Kingdom education here at MCA with the development of our Track and Field Complex.
We need every member of our community to make a sacrificial financial commitment to this vision. Please prayerfully consider how your family will give to this campaign:
Worship and Performing Arts Center
Phase 3 of the Limitless Campaign was completed Summer 2018! God worked in a mighty way to make this possible and we are so thankful for his provision. Our new Worship and Performing Arts Center is meeting the needs of our students in the following ways:
- A band room
- A drama room
- A music/dance room
- Multi-purpose space - dining for students of all ages and stage for performing arts events (This new dining space for MCA students will be adjacent to our present FLC kitchen enabling MCA to provide more food service options during student lunches.)
- Classrooms for additional educational support
- More office space
- Additional storage spaces
Visual Arts & Technology Building
Phase 2 of the Limitless Building Campaign is complete! In mid-January 2017 the 6,600 sq. ft., Visual Arts & Technology Building became home to students for classes such as High School Art I, II and III, and Computer Technology classes for Lower and Middle School students and New Media and MOS classes for High School students. Another beautiful addition to our campus! Through the generosity of MCA families and friends of the school, we are blessed to have this need met and paid for!
Thank you for supporting the growth of Metrolina Christian Academy!
Math & Science Building
Look at what God has accomplished through His people in Phase 1 of the Limitless Building Campaign! We can truly say, “Mission Accomplished” on completing Phase 1 of the Limitless Building Campaign. We occupied our new 6,600 sq. ft. Math and Science Building in mid-January 2016. What a beautiful addition to our campus! This new building is a great blessing in meeting the needs of our ever growing student population.
An even greater blessing is that through the generosity of MCA families and friends of the school, this building is paid for!!
