Michiana Christian Academy is dedicated to empowering students and their families to boldly serve Jesus Christ by building an excellent academic foundation established on the truth of God’s Word. MCA strives to establish in each child, first a love for Jesus, then a heart that thirsts for the righteousness of God, a desire to pursue his or her God-given purpose, excellence of character, and an esteem for learning and wisdom.
Michiana Christian Academy seeks to meet our students where they are, both academically and spiritually. Through excellence in education in a Christian environment, MCA prepares our students to continue on the narrow path towards their academic endeavors and to accomplish this in a loving, nurturing, and safe environment. MCA strives to model the love of Christ to the Michiana Community through cultivating personal relationships among the school & church staff, our students, their families, and our community. The ultimate goal of Michiana Christian Academy is to follow the leadership of Jesus Christ, through the prompting of the Holy Spirit, to equip our students to “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” (Mark 16:15)
MCA offers rigorous academics that emphasize critical thinking skills. Our small class sizes allow us to have maximum impact on a student’s individual development, both academically and spiritually. Our Christian faith shapes our curriculum while also meeting state standards. Our students attend a weekly chapel service and also participate in Family Groups where they receive mentoring from older students and provide mentoring for younger ones, all while serving the school & community in an area of interest.
Michiana Christian Academy (formerly Michiana Christian School) was founded in 1976 in South Bend, Indiana as a ministry of area Churches of Christ/Christian Churches desired to provide a Christ-centered education for young individuals in the community. MCA continues today primarily as a mission of the Deer Run Church of Christ (DRCC), a loving and dedicated church family, along with supportive churches and invested members of the community.
MCA is Freeway Accredited by the Indiana State Department of Education. We also participate in the Indiana Choice Scholarship voucher program.
