Should be called McKinney Protestant Academy. The bible teachers repeatedly teach biblical "truths" from a protestant viewpoint. On more than a couple of occasions, my daughter has been told that her Catholic beliefs are wrong.
My daughter graduated in May 2014 from MCA and is a freshman at OU. The first day of school she called wanting a copy of her old Econ notes and the website to the teacher's Econ page. She has an A in this class and well as her other classes and she could not have accomplished this without the excellent education she received at MCA. Since this is a college preparatory school, she learned how to take notes and study for exams. I highly recommend this school.
McKinney Christian Academy is an amazing school with a loving staff who pour love, education and spirituality into our children everyday. Choosing to become a part of the MCA family was one of the best decisions our family has ever made! It is truly a blessing to send our children to McKinney Christian Academy.
I know my kids are getting a quality education with spiritual guidance and an emphasis on God's Word. They have wonderful friendships and enjoy the extracurricular activities. It is academically challenging with a lot of homework included, but I know they will be prepared for college.
I sent my now senior to MCA as a sixth grader. I was very skeptical of a "private school" since I am a product of public schools only. Immediately, my family fell in love! The teachers have very high standards, yet they are compassionate and spend time developing relationships with the students beyond the classroom. The administration knows each kid by name and also becomes involved in the lives of the students. The family feel is amazing. Everyone supports each other. Friday night football games are a blast for the entire family! The curriculum is college-preparatory, Christian world-view. The curriculum is tough, but I know my sons will be completely prepared for college! Think of the curriculum as a blend between the new cutting edge teaching methods that public school teachers utilize with the old-fashioned book, paper, and pencil expectations. I love that every class connects concepts taught to the Bible. My husband and I quickly enrolled our other sons to MCA and are SO thankful for the blessing of this school!
We moved here from out of state 4 years ago and our boys started at MCA at that time (4th and 6th grade). They were immediately accepted and welcomed in by their peers and teachers! Since then, they have had amazing experiences and have been challenged academically. But even more important than that, they are growing spiritually and supported by the teachers and staff! I wouldn't have them anywhere else!
My son has been attending McKinney Christian Academy for the past 4 years. My husband and I could not be happier with our experience at MCA. Our son is thriving there due to the wonderful friendships, excellent teachers and staff, and Christian beliefs on which it is based. I love seeing him grow in so many different ways other than just academically. He can get a good education in many different schools, but seeing his spiritual growth is something we cannot find just anywhere, nor can we put a price on that. The life lessons he is getting at MCA will carry him much farther than an education alone. Thank you MCA!!!
My oldest has been at MCA going on her 7th year and my youngest going on her third year. I have been extremely happy with the education they are receiving as well as the Biblical instruction they are receiving on a daily basis. I have also watched my once timid and shy child turn into a young lady of confidence because of her teachers and the friends she has made. MCA is a stellar school and I wouldn't consider sending my children anywhere else.
Two years ago we needed to make a change in our children's school. We researched all the private schools in the McKinney area and MCA best lined up with our goals for our children. MCA has exceeded our expectations. We love the Christian science curriculum they use -- its the best! The teachers are well prepared. No school is perfect. We raised one concern and were blown away with how the school staff handled it. We've found both the middle school and high school teacher and staff to be professional, well-trained, and all pursue excellence. They began working with our children in middle school to make sure they will graduate with everything they need to qualify for the best colleges. As a parent this guidance is so very helpful. The bring in over 20 college representatives throughout the year for high schoolers to meet. MCA does a great job of pursuing academic excellence while also giving great attention to the spiritual aspect and character development. We love the balanced approach. Our two children have thrived at MCA.
