Welcoming New Staff
We are committed to serving your family.
Whether your student is seven or 17, our prayer and passion is that their hearts and minds will be renewed by transformational faith in Christ.
Transformation is the result of knowing the truth in our hearts … which is why we are committed to guiding head knowledge into heart knowledge alongside our students in the classroom, on the playing field, on stage, and on
Who we are in Christ becomes a living reality as the truth transforms us into His image, and we begin to see the fruit of His Spirit. This is our desire for every student at Medina Christian Academy!
Our teachers are a living curriculum — spiritual mentors — building relationships with a belief that each student has a purpose in Christ. Therefore, we
praise God for these additional MCA staff members who are joining us this fall:
