How 2020 Changed Us

Coming Together as One

MCA Family

Throughout 2020, we faced the challenges of COVID-19. Yet in the face of uncertainty, drawing on our faith and trust in God, we came together as a school community that was stronger than ever. At Medina Christian Academy, we are more than individual students, parents, teachers, staff members, and alumni—we are a family!

While 2020 will undoubtedly be remembered for its difficulties, it will also be remembered by our MCA Family as a time of perseverance, growth, and joy for our school community. Here are a few examples:

 

Teachers Went Above and Beyond

While Medina Christian Academy teachers have consistently gone above and beyond to maintain a welcoming school environment, no matter the extra time and energy required, their unwavering commitment during 2020 was exceptional. They adapted their approaches to education to maximize student learning and development. They trusted God, and the positive results were significant. They found ways to provide our students in-person learning and continued spiritual growth. We were then, and remain blessed to have such wonderful, dedicated teachers at our school.

 

Students Rose to Challenges

We witnessed our students rising to the challenges of 2020 and supporting one another. They took the disappointments of the year, such as our annual Homecoming festivities being canceled, in stride and supported one another. They truly lived God’s word through their actions.

 

Student-Athletes Exemplied Character and Discipline

Our student-athletes, guided by our coaches, continued to make us proud by their display of character. Their competitive experiences for our Knights looked different during the modified season, but they continued to excel and give their very best. We celebrated our student-athletes’ personal achievements, both in their sport and in the classroom.

 

Progress Continued in Facility Renovations and Upper Campus Expansion

Our capital campaign efforts continued throughout 2020. While there were many challenges to fundraising during that time, our school community and staff found new ways to continue our efforts. 2020 was a momentous year in the life of our school: We purchased the former Rustic Hills Country Club property in January and opened our new Upper Campus in August of 2020 – never once were we deterred. Throughout that difficult period we saw God bless Medina Christian Academy, those blessings continue!

As we reflect on 2020 we saw perseverance, faith, and trust in God deliver us with each challenge we encountered. We are grateful for the many things we learned and how we saw the blessings of God touch our MCA Family in that different and difficult period.
