MCA is a wonderful school. They help students of all types achieve greater academic standing. The loving and nurturing environment encourages children to learn and the small class sizes encourage student involvement. Parent involvement is spectacular and the PTO actively raises funds for renovations, special programs, and fun activities. MCA is an extension of our family. We love MCA!
There are some ungodly things going on in this school. I have been involved with this school for two years and have been very unhappy especially the leadership. If you are looking for a real Christian environment this is not the place at all.
Our family has been involved with Memorial Chrsitian Academy for a long time and we have been extremely pleased. Looking forward to another great year.
unsatisfacory education. Principals do not enforce rules with teachers and blame students. I do not recomend this school
We are generally pleased with the school. The kids enjoy their classes, teachers, and learning.
The school has really gone downhill over the last couple of years under the new administrator. Some of the teachers are great, but its not good anymore as far as the leadership. Sad.
Memorial Christian Academy has been a blessing to our student and family. We are natives of Killeen and had always been involved with the public school system. We prayed for another option as our older children were in public school. At that time there was no accredited private school. One day as I was praying over my child as I dropped them off at school, God spoke to me about inquiring about MCA. I got to work and called, MCA was not accredited nor did they go through 12th grade at the time but I knew the strong pull that God wanted us to make a move from the negative influence of public education. We toured, enrolled and continued to pray. MCA has now become an accredited school and is now celebrating its second graduating senior class! God is so good and faithful to those who seek his direction. MCA is a positive learning environment where staff strives to help develop a strong foundation of Christian education. Students are able to build Christian relationships as they prepare to become independent adults defending their faith. Thank you MCA for all you have done and continue to do!
Memorial Christian Academy has been absolutely great for our daughter and family. I personally know most of the staff and they deeply care for the students and do all that they can to solve any problem. I don't see how anyone can say anything bad about the staff or the school. May God continue to bless Memorial.
Great school! My children have really advanced in their reading skills. Administrators and teachers have made an excellent effort to make the school better Christian school.
This is the first educational institution that I've experienced where parental involvement is discouraged unless is involves fundraising for the school . Parent/teacher conferences was not encouraged and communication to parents lacking. When we initially attending MCA we were told by others about the school lack of ability to admit fault even in the face of wrong doing and sadly the rumors rang true. In fact, we found the students were often blamed and called liars in order to remove fault from the teachers and school administration. This is not the type of christian environment we envisioned for our children where twisting of the truth in the school /house of God is so easily expressed. Those who dare challenge their indiscretions are called harassers and instructed to find other educational institution of learning for their child. If a teacher violates the rulebook, parents are told that no faults was found, but if a parent questions a staff on an academic rule, an email is generated to parents on what will not be tolerated. if you are a parent involve in the type of education their child receives, this is not the school for you.
My child attended this school for 2 school years. The curriculum is advanced compared to the local public schools and my child ended up skipping a grade when he went back to public schools once we moved. The teachers are caring though there are a few that could use some lessons is grammar especially those that speak English as a second language. I think if you can get the better teachers, then your experience will be 5 star.
The overall school is great. It is better than the alternative, going to public schools here. The academic program is advanced which is great for getting your children ready for their future. The only issues thus far since having our children in the school is in certain areas. Our children have not had much teacher involvement minus what's offered during the day, and when trying to have parent/teacher involvement it is quite difficult unless you want to communicate via email in which we don't like to address our children on a non personal basis. There has been issues with bullying in which we were told was a zero tolerance for. As parents, we can not be with our child 24/7 or we would to protect them, and we were hoping this school would help eliminate bullying and harrassement or correct it. Our children are happier being out of the public schools but they struggle with teacher involvment. At public school, although overcrowded, etc..the teachers did take time to calmly, softly, non judgementaly address each situation. And there was never judgement placed upon anyone. Overall, it's a positive environment and our children love having GOD being a part of their learning experinces.
Awesome school! This is my daughters 2nd year and she loves it! I had to take her out of public school because no teachers would take their time with her. Every single teacher here works together and is involved with the students. And they encourage parent involvement. I could not have asked for a better school that also invovles christian learning. Although we will be moving we hope to find another school like this one. Thank you MCA!
The people at this school make all the difference! The teachers are great, the staff is wonderful and the principal is man of God. There is a suprising amount of extras for a small school. I wish we could return.. we're hoping for Ft. Hood again!
We were are Memorial Christian Academy for 4 years and we loved it. They have a lot to offer at this school including sports for students in Elementary school through high school, theater, music and many more extra- curricular activities. The teachers and staff are wonderful and work very hard to give their students the education and biblical principals that you would expect. Their academics are challenging, and give the students a advantage above the rest. My four kids will never forget the foundation that was instilled at MCA. The military has moved us to another state, but we will take all that we learned to our new school. Thanks MCA
What a WONDERFUL school with the most caring staff. Over our 4 years (with 3 children enrolled) at MCA the staff truly cared for my children. You could not ask for a better education. Due to the Military we have had to move and I can say my high-schooler is now placed in honors classes at his new school. They have competitive extra-curricular activities, a fantastic PTVO, and the teacher/staff involvement couldn't be any better. Thanks MCA for giving my kids the solid educational and spiritual foundation that will stay with them forever!!! What a blessing!!
This is a wonderful Christian school. My children were always happy there, the education was top notch and the teachers and staff were very caring. We moved away last year, but we wish we could return.
We have thoroughly enjoyed Memorial Christian, and as a military family on the move frequently, we appreciate the thoroughness and understanding that the teachers and administration show toward our lifestyle. The academics are great, and the follow-up is terrific with parents. Only wish we could transplant this school to our next duty station.
Great school- much higher quality of education. Small classes but not too small. Lots of extras that don't cost a dime.
This is an okay school if your child has not had any schooling. They make it known that the can't take children who need an IEP but they don't tell you that also can't take children who are above their curriculum. They expect you to wait and be patient as the school year goes on. Even after speaking with the director and the teacher about my daughter abilties I was told to just wait.
