Awesome! Great set of parents, students, and teachers focused on education. We're coming back for another year. The education my child has received outperforms the private school she previously attended.

This is my daughters first year (Third Grade) and I couldn't be a happier parent. I was a little afraid for her due to all the technology but she proved to be MCAA material and has held her 4.0 GPA. Her teacher is the best 'Go Mr. D' teacher and extremely dedicated to his 'kids' (Students). Your child will receive a supperb education and will also be treated with respect and care. We love this school! Proud parent

This is our third year at MCAA and we love it! The school is not just a place of education - but a community. The instruction that my child receives is directly in line with the best way that 'high-achieving' children learn - collaborative, exploratory and fast-paced. Our son has found a home at MCAA and we are trhilled to be a part of it.

My daughter wasn't challenged at MCAA. Even when they moved her into their more advanced class she was bored with the program. We have since transferred her to another local private school and now she is happy and working hard again at a higher level. Everyone at the school was very nice, but it was not as strong academically as my husband and I had hoped it would be.

My son attended 2005-2006 4th grade at MCAA and we could not have been more pleased. He did extremely well on his CRCT tests and the ITBS. He received 4 years of Private school instruction previously and I can honestly say we were more impressed with his experience at MCAA. MCAA teachers encourage the children and make learning fun and exciting. I am amazed at what he has learned. His last two weeks at school he spent researching a topic and independently developing and presenting a power point presentation! The Math, Science, Technology instruction is in my opinion exceptional. If you have a well-behaved, achievement oriented child and are committed to being involved in your child's education - you would be hard pressed to find a better school in Marietta.
