I am an education advocate and an optional education teacher at our community college. It was through prayer, experience, and research that my husband and I chose Murphysboro Christian Academy for our children. This school has been an answered prayer to us. We know, without a doubt, when we leave our child at MCA in the morning, the staff reinforces what we have taught her at home. I have peace in knowing my child is in an environment where she feels safe, loved, and valued by all the teachers and all the staff, all of the time. The Christian Environment has made way for my daughter to develop lasting friendships with other children being raised with similiar values, beliefs, and ethics. In regards to the educational component, I believe that we are exceeding state education standards in most every subject. For me, that is the icing on the cake!
I enrolled my son here after having trouble with the public school system. This school has been a Blessing to both my son and myself!
I was hired as a 3rd grade teacher this year at Murphysboro Christian Academy. My two sons are also enrolled there. There are more things to offer the children, from learning to extra activities. It is more than what my children had when they were in previous Christian schools. I am blessed every day to teach my class of 15. It is a privilege to be a part of MCA. God bless!
Murphysboro Christian Academy is an outstanding private Christian school. It has excellent academic standards which include a professional staff that care for each and every student. The small class size enables each child to excel and build friendships that will last a lifetime. MCA offers a sports program and a wonderful music program, among many other extracurricular activities. The parents are encouraged to involve themselves in every aspect of the school which provides the students with a family oriented learning environment. The weekly chapels are also a highlight of this excellent school. As a parent, I am highly pleased with the education my child is receiving and would strongly recommend Murphysboro Christian Academy.
The acedemic programs are excellent. It teaches kids great christian values and the cirriculum is excellent. They have a music program including 2 school musicals a year.Physical Ed is also available and sports teams are created for basketball. I think this is a great way to educate children. I should know, I attended it for ten years.
Murphysboro Christian Academy is an excellent academic environment that is built on the foundation of our Creator and His Word. The children are not only exposed to the most current learning tools, they are led daily by highly educated teachers to live their life in God's plan for them. There is not another school in Jackson County that can compare to MCA's test scores and reputation for quality Christian education. The students are also invited to be the best they can be in sports, music and academic competition. Every parent of an MCA student is also a member of the Parent Teacher Fellowship and work very closely to provide Christian activities for all students and their families while raising funds for important advances in technology for the student body. As the nation watches youngsters throwing their lives away, MCA is producing well adjusted and highly educated Christian leaders for our country.
This ia an excellent school top notch academics and teachers who care about the success of students. Extracurricular activites are limited but are available. Parent invovlement is strongly encouraged and appreciated.
