What I love most about MCA are the teachers. They take the extra steps to make sure that students understand the material well, which I think shows how much they care about us.


I love the school spirit! It’s everywhere, and I feel like I am welcomed. Also, there is a strong bond of sisterhood between not only my classmates but other girls in different grades. Every morning when I wake up, I wonder who I will see and what events will take place! 


MCA has impacted my life spiritually by offering different activities to explore my faith and develop a strong relationship with Christ. If I look at how my life has changed since coming here, my relationship with God has really grown.


There is such a clear sense of sisterhood in our school. On multiple occasions, I have had complete strangers come up to me and ask me to sit with them. Everyone is so kind and supportive, and I cannot think of a better environment for me.
