I am sorry to say that my children and I did not have a good experience at MCA. Like other concerned Christian parents I enrolled my children there to be in a Christian environment. I also served there as a volunteer. The problem is with a small " Church School " that answers to no one you don't know what kind of Christianity you are going to get. My children and I witnessed all kinds of inappropriate correction including public humiliation and unwarranted spanking. Talk about sex by school administrators was disturbing. Some of the parent's shortcomings were discussed durring Bible class. It saddens me to say these things but I believe parents would appreciate a warning. Most of the teachers are good Christian people who care about the kids but they are not certified teachers. The school may have Abecca curriculum but it is not the accredited version. So the school is not an accredited school. I would encourage you to check out Church in Marshall and their leaders online before making a decision to send your child to their Church School.
We met with the school administrators and decided immediately that this school would be best for our 5 year old daughter. We wanted her to be brought up in a school system based on God instead of some world evolutionary brainwashing public schools teach. Not only that but the cirriculum is the superior A Becka program.
This school is improving every year in it's ability to serve local parents in training thier children in the way they should go. Starting with the foundation in the Lord, then building with education that prepares them for the next step no matter what level they a be.
I went to this school for four years. The teachers care alot about the students and are friendly. This school does not have all the extra activities a larger school might have but you can be sure that your children will be in a safe, godly, and friendly place, something that is increasingly harder to find in these days.
