Education at Midland Classical Academy is an active endeavor. Students are neither blank slates to be written upon nor empty vessels to pour facts into, rather they are young people brimming with thoughts and ideas of their own. Learning is a team effort. Students are invited to join tutors in the learning process and this is where exponential growth happens. Our staff draws students out – encouraging them to share what they know, ask their questions, and seek real answers. At MCA the atmosphere of curiosity and the discipline of inquiry are cultivated so that we break through the mechanics of education and allow the subject to intersect the student’s thoughts under the supervision of the tutor.
As we biblically consider God’s world together in the classroom, through sports, and within relationships, the full spectrum of our lives become transformed by divine purpose.
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”Romans 12:2
“...casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ”2 Corinthians 10:15
Jesus Christ is the focus and foundation for all that we do at Midland Classical Academy. He is Alpha and the Omega and it is in Him that we have our life and being. As He is fully God, Jesus is our authority for what is true and what is right. Every subject we learn, every activity we undertake, indeed every aspect of our lives is to proclaim His goodness. At our core we are a discipleship program that strives to carry out the Great Commission through Classical Education.
“If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.”Luke 9:23
“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ Amen.”Matthew 28:18-20
At Midland Classical Academy we strive for greatness. We train our character. We pursue excellence in academics. We compete to the best of our ability. But we believe that true greatness is defined through the teachings and example of Jesus. Greatness is not discovered in the mere development or display of our talents, but through selflessly employing them in humble service to others. MCA exists to teach and to train young men and women to give our utmost for eternal greatness.
“But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.”Matthew 23:11
“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”Mark 10:45
