Our Story, Mission, Vision

Founded on God’s word

Our Story

We are a community of believers on a mission. Our teachers are a living curriculum; they are followers of Christ, knowing Jesus, and seeking to partner with each parent…our teachers are relationship-builders.  They are not only trained in the pedagogy of teaching; our teachers desire to disciple. They seek to train up every student to know God’s truth, understand they are designed to carry out God’s purpose in their lives and impact the world.

Founded in 1981, Medina Christian Academy has been blessed to come alongside families as we educate and disciple the next generation. We believe that students discover their God-given gifts and flourish when they are in a Christ-centered environment. Students of all ages thrive in a hands-on, interactive learning environment. At each stage of development, students are actively engaged academically, spiritually, and socially. Our goal is that if someone sat in any class at any time at MCA, it would appear significantly different than a similar class at any other school. God is front and center, as our students study His word and His world.

Motto

Discovering ambitious callings and authentic relationships for Soli Deo Gloria.

more than a building

building relationships

Jesus taught us that the difference is relationship…our greatest desire is for every student to have a personal relationship with Christ. We believe that if our students have a relationship with God and are guided through life by fellow believers, they can learn to seek Christ in all aspects of their life. That’s why we are committed to offering spiritual retreats, opportunities to serve on the mission field, & reflective, spiritual checkpoints throughout the school year… Learning about God goes far beyond the brick and mortar of a building; at MCA it is faith in action.

Core Values

Passion

We serve God with all of our hearts in what He has called us to do to establish a legacy that will mark eternity (Psalm 33:11). 

We hire and develop staff passionate for God’s calling who are fully committed to serving God and loving students (Matt 5:8; Gal 5:13-14).

We maintain focus by making decisions based on two criteria, if it honors Jesus and if it is in the best interest of our students (Phil 2:4-7), recognizing that we are meant for more than the world offers. 

Excellence

We strive to discover and inspire students to fully develop their God-given gifts (Col 3:17). 

We relentlessly pursue total excellence, both organizationally and personally, centered on Christ (Col 3:23). 

We believe in challenging ourselves in a model of excellence not for our own gain rather all for the glory of God (1 Cor 10:31). 

Relationships

We commit to being a community of one mind, focused on our Kingdom purpose (Acts 2:42-47; Psalm 133).

We believe life change happens through authentic relationships (John 13:34-35; John 13:20). 

We value a community, aligned with one purpose, under God, to pursue the vision and mission He has given us (Psalm 133:1-3; Phil 2:2 ).
