Elementary

At Medina Christian Academy, the highly qualified teachers in our kindergarten through fourth grade classes provide a supportive, nurturing environment that fosters both your child’s academic and spiritual development. Students receive instruction in English language & literacy, mathematics, Bible, science, and social studies. Students are taught to think critically, problem solve, and work collaboratively, all within the framework of a Biblical worldview.

The curriculum throughout the school provides a strong Christian emphasis to education based on educational values on which our country was founded. Several programs in reading and writing on the elementary level, and life skills such as computer technology and speech enhance the curriculum.

In addition to our strong academics, Medina Christian Academy strives to provide students with opportunities to live out their faith.  James 1:22 (NIV) says “Do not merely listen to the Word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”  MCA provides each student with opportunities to serve or help others by way of  class service projects. Students participate in two service projects a year and these age appropriate activities allow students to show Christ’s love to others, give of themselves, and be doers of the Word.
