This is a wonderful Christian environment. Faculty, Parents, and Board members are all one family working together for the benefit of the students.

McClain Christian Academy - The Christian school of choice! Christian attributes show from the Board all the way through the leadership, staff, students and parents. Truly a quality Christian school where students excel. MCA showcases a true college preparatory education from preschool through the high school which is housed on a college campus.

This is my sons 3rd year at MCA and we absolutely love it. The teachers and staff go above and beyond to may sure that every child has what they need. The classed sized are small so that helps each child get a more individual attention. The students there are also so great and helpful with one another. I would highly recommend everyone to check out this school.

McClain Christian Academy is a wonderful school. The teachers and staff are all very nurturing and truly care about each child. My grandson is attending for his second year and is very happy.MCA has been great for him as he has anxiety problems and the teachers are very understanding and compassionate. The academics are superb..

This is our first year at McClain Christian Academy. I have seen my two children flourish! MCA has an amazing staff that truly loves the children. They excel in christian values, academics, and small classrooms. Every child's needs are met with total devotion from each staff member. I've never seen another school come together and work side by side as a family with total dedication as McClain Christian Academy.

McClain Christian Academy is an incredible school for my son. He has developed into a fine young man with the help and guidance of a caring staff, small classrooms, and a respectful Christian atmosphere. I cannot imagine him going anywhere else. This quiet school ranks at the very top academically in the nation. No other local school comes close. Thanks for what you have done. Lewis Whitener

McClain is a wonderful school. There, they teach the values and morals we teach in our home. They teachers are caring and give each child the attention they need and deserve. I feel my child has achieved so much from the wonderful teachers and staff. As a parent of a chronically ill child it very important that the staff understands the personal needs of my child. Again, this school has went above and beyond to make sure my child as well as all the other childrens needs are met. Many praises for McClain Christian Academy

McClain Christian Academy-Pixie offers small class sizes and special needs to my grandson. Although Kael is a heart baby, he excels two grade level above kindergarten and McClain offers him the opportunity to continue to excel. The staff also has the time to pay attention to his health needs.

This is my daughter's first year at MCA. She's only been there a little over a week and I shave noticed a difference in her already. She is excited about going to school everyday and comes home telling me about the things she has learned. The staff is very friendly and seems to care about the students.

This is my daughter's 5th year at MCA. She loves it. The teacher's are devoted to helping each child reach their highest potential. The day begins with the pledge of allegiance and a prayer (what a great way to begin the day). Our curriculum is challenging and MCA's test scores rank top in the nation. The new state-of-the-art facility is magnificent. Go take a look at MCA!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
