Mekeel Christian Academy has been not only a school, but also a FAMILY to us! Our experience with the school has been beyond what we could have expected, both socially and academically. I have met many staff members on a personal and professional level, whom choose to put the children and their needs before their own. It has been our experience that discipline at Mekeel, is handled with grace and knowledge, not just consequence. For that we are grateful. The school is well worth the investment!

As an alumn of the school I couldn't be more proud of MCA and thankful for my time there. I transferred in in 6th grade and my only regret is that I wasn't able to start sooner. The teachers and coaches really care, the friendships are genuine, and the opportunities were there for me to get the most out of my education. Now I am most thankful for the spiritual impact and Christian values that the school instilled.

I am also very excited about the vision and future of the school. The Board of Directors is Fantastic!
My children have been attending Mekeel Christian Academy since elementary school. Both children have thrived in the academic setting as proven by PSAT and SAT testing. My oldest daughter has now gone to a four year college where she has already proven her preparedness by her 4.0 and through an award for her writing. She frequently refers to her gratitude for the ways her teachers prepared her for the rigors of academic life.

But more than academics, I am grateful for teachers and administrators who daily demonstrate their care for the children of Mekeel. The emphasis on godly character and the training in Christian responses to life’s experiences will be the most important gift they will receive from Mekeel. As a parent, I am grateful for reinforcement of our family principles, beliefs and world view.
