MCA is a GREAT school!! Very caring and welcoming staff. The Abeka curriculm is SUPER, too....covers all subjects deeply with a Christian flair that seems to make the kids smile about what they are learning. My 2 kids who are now honors college students attended MCA 10+ years ago and I now have a 1st grader there which is proof that the school is also strong from the business standpoint!! Low tuition is a plus for me. Definitely worth every penny and more!!
Marlton Christian Academy is a wonderful school. The staff and teachers are so warm and caring and definately put your child's needs first. There are so many more personalized touches at this school that allow my child to experience which really puts them above public education. We love Marlton Christian Academy!!
MCAE has excellent academics and an unparrallelled environment. My children are in a safe and nurturing environment. From Principal leadership to the teaching staff they partner with child and family to create a wonderful balance.
What a sweet staff! A beautiful, clean, and healthy learning environment that I truly enjoy sending my son to! My daughter, now 8, attended this school and learned so much - it is amazing that it actually got even better! The curriculum is excellent, and the entire facility is so uplifting and pleasant to walk into. A diamond of a school!!
I have a Kindergartener and we have only been here a couple of month but WOW. The growth that we have seen is tremendous. This is my third child and I wish the first two had started at MCAE.
The school is very reasonably priced and the quality of the education is excellent. The curriculum is customized to each students level and the teachers partner with the parents on academic and social issues. The teachers, principal and supporting staff genuinely care about the children. I am most impressed with how the school embeds spiritual lessons within the curriculum. It only serves to enhance the quality of the education my daughter receives. The special classes like music and latin are amazing and i am impressed daily by what my daughter is learning.
My daughter loves MCA Elementary! The faculty and staff are very supportive and caring. The school is super clean does everything with excellence!
My twins have attended MCA for the past 3 years (2 yrs of preschool & now they are in kindergarten). Some reasons I chose MCA were: full day kindergarten, outstanding curriculum, introduction to religion, reasonably priced and it was highly recommended from friends who had children attend in the past. I feel that the teachers, principal and supporting staff genuinely care about the children. The principal and teachers are always available to address any questions or concerns. They never hesitate to respond when I call regarding my children. The communication I have continuously had with the principal and teacher proves that they are each there for the intellectual growth of the children; not because they have to be there just to do a job. I can't think of one negative thing to say. All I know is that each day my sons come home from school they have smiles on their faces and enjoy sharing all the new things they learned that day.
My son attended MCA in kindergarten and now 1st Grade. The teachers are absolutely amazing. I couldn't believe how much my son learned in kindergarten, and now I become even more amazed in 1st Grade. The teachers, along with the principal, are the best. In my opinion, they are over qualified, but I am surely not complaining!!! I would recommend this school to anyone. Your child receives an amazing (private school) education while at the same time is taught how to be "a good person." The children are surrounded by love throughout the school. They care so much about the kids. My daughter will begin kindergarten in September!!!!
I LOOOOOOVE this school, Alot has changed since Mrs. Kaluka has become the principle and my Kindergartner has thrived in the loving yet firm and structured environment. I will be putting both my children in this school next year and will keep them there as long as I can. School fees are also very reasonable.
My daughter's experience at MCA was absolutely wonderful! She attended kindergarten at MCA this past academic year. I was truly amazed at how much she learned in one year; her teacher was excellent! Not only were all of the teachers excellent, but so is the principal. She truly cares about the students and families of MCA. As a Christian, it was wonderful to know that my daughter was not only learning to read and write but that she was also learning about Jesus. If my family did not relocate to another state, my daughter would have continued at MCA. It is with great sadness that we left this wonderful school!
The school is inadequte. The curriculum is poor and lacking. The staff is incompetent -they do not practice what they preach.
My secound grader is at 7th and 8th grade level on his standardized testing. I was not impressed with public school. While there have been some changes of late at this school and what seems to me to be a diffrence in views between the church board and previous principle, i must say that the love and superior education at mca is 2nd to none. My son is using a beka and he loves his small class size.
My Son is studying KG under Ms Soorikian and I just want to say that he has picked up so many skills and reading capabilities under her. He reads almost everything now and I cant express how exciting that it. His teacher is excellant and is the ONLY reason for his improvement. The new Principal is wodnerful and caring. The after care staff are GREAT as well. Overall I wouldnt have wanted my Son in any other school for KG. Hope they keep up the good work.
I am very sorry to hear that the principal has left this school. My children received an excellent education while they were there. The A-Beka program was definitely used as well as other materials that reinforced the material presented. I also found the principal very involved with the students and their families. I am glad that my family had the opportunity to have met her and to be guided by her with her christian values. It is a shame that the school didn't try to keep her. However, I understand her new school is going great and the families feel blessed to have her as their principal. MCA lost but another school gained.
I never had any problems with the school nor did I have any problems with the principal or staff. I thought everyone was warm, and helpful. The principal always went out of her way for my child and my family. I give it a 5 Star rating. Its just a shame the principal and her staff left marlton. Not to sure how the ratings would be now.
I was not pleased with the principal of this school last year. I was not planning to return until I heard she was leaving. The new principal seems very organized, is gracious, and the music minister at the church (a man of God). Now I am extremely excited to be bringing my child back. Kindergarten was a great experience and now I am looking forward to First Grade and Ms. Previte.
Agree with last comment...teachers are great and nurturing and caring. The former principal Carol Dimenna on the other hand, is very unprofessional, and rude! The best thing for the school is that she left!
My child attended MCA through 3rd grade. I would agree that the K program is very good because of the dedication of the teachers and amount of time the children spend there (it is full day), however the remaining grades are quite lacking. The curriculum is not a-beka, as a previous poster stated. The principal told me it was, but after going through the entire year there I saw that a-beka books and workbooks were never used. After transferring to another school, my child struggled with language arts and math. Also, the principal can be quite abrasive at times, which is probably why she has received many negative comments on this board.
