The choices for schools in and around Mount Dora are limited. MDCA provides a small-school K-12 environment with average academics where students are sheltered from the bullying, drugs, and gang issues so prevalent in local area public schools. Unfortunately, the academic quality suffers because CHBS hires only Church of Christ teachers and pays them poorly; however, the teachers do cover basics adequately. They put too much emphasis on sports. For $10,000 per year, I'd like academics to be stronger, particularly in AP-level advanced math, science and computer classes; however, I'd also rather provide my child adequate academics taught in a safe environment where personal values come first than in a politically-correct public institution with lots of resources but where bullying and drugs are commonplace.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
As a parent we were looking for a school that was effective in all areas and we believe that begins with an institutions leadership. Strong educators, teacher character, student safety, employee morale, and love for community is pretty hard to get all wrapped in one package, but with prayer and discernment we we blessed to find MDCA. One of our main "selling points" was the open door policy from the President all the way down to individual teachers, I love how accessible they are for us to voice our opinion or concern regarding anything we feel necessary.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Mount Dora Christian Academy has given my children the platform we were looking for in education to elaborate on what we teach in our own home, good moral character and strong christian values.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
I feel that MDCA teachers are qualified not only to teach the highest standards in curriculum but go above and beyond that in the classroom everyday. My students are flourishing academically in this amazing environment.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Teachers realize that there is a balance between homework and time spent in the evenings with family. Teacher communications with parents throughout the week about homework assignments and test days gives us as parents the ability to plan our week accordingly.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
If the saying is true "you are only as strong as your weakest leader", then how blessed we feel as parents that MDCA has a core group of strong leaders who undoubtedly have my children's best interest always at the forefronts of their minds. They are not only approachable and available, but communication is always open between parents, faculty, and administration.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Character such as integrity, compassion and respect all begin at home, however MDCA does a great job of partnering with parents in building upon these characteristics while at school. Students have incredible opportunities throughout the school year to show Christ in our community. Individual leadership roles for both male and female students in and out of the classroom are plentiful.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
MDCA teachers are solid in their abilities to teach rigorous curriculum, with heart and dedication. They stand behind their students every challenging assignment along the way, cheering them on in their efforts while building their character and self esteem. Teachers at MDCA are nothing short of amazing, our children are more blessed than they realize to have the ability to be taught by such incredible people.


Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
MDCA has a strong administration who has laid a foundation of preventative strategies in striving to be a bully free school. By emphasizing that our community is truly family, united in one spirit for the same purpose inclines students to want to draw closer to one another in building lasting friendships through a common bond.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
Mount Dora Christian Academy understands that all children learn at a different pace and are gifted differently.
