PROVIDING A SOLID CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION IN EDUCATION

Elementary age children benefit from kindergarten through fifth grade. We provide a rigorous academic experience in core subjects preparing students for middle school and beyond.

Children are enriched by wide selection elective classes including art, music, computer, library, Spanish and physical education. Sports lovers are able to join one of our organized sports teams in 5th grade and above. Another important aspect of our students’ learning are our weekly chapel services, where Christian character and faith in God are strengthened.

Students are recognized for development progress in a variety of areas through ribbons, added privileges, and supervised parties and activities.

Our faculty and administration strive to make City Christian Schools a fun atmosphere for each child. It is a safe environment to try new things where children are encouraged to develop their God-given talents.

In addition to our regular academic schedule, we provide opportunities for students to participate in art fair, an annual talent show, and organized music concerts.

Annual field trips may include the pumpkin patch, children’s museum, the library, restaurants, the veterinary hospital, gem museum, Franz Bakery, Fort Vancouver, the John McLaughlin House, OMSI, and the Oregon Zoo.

Our Christ-centered approach to education is also demonstrated in how teachers interact with the student body. Our instructors regularly pray for the students and reflect Christ’s love for them. They even have played an instrumental role in leading students to a personal relationship with Christ.

Success in today’s world and marketplace requires increased proficiency with the digital world. That’s why through all grade levels, we make technology a regular part of the academic process.

Mannahouse Christian Academy is equipped with multiple computer labs that can bring state-of-the art technology into each classroom, a research lab, and a complete 36-station computer training center, loaded with the latest in academic, office, and design software.

Beginning in elementary grades, students have a structured computer class, which helps them develop skills with keyboarding, word processing, safe computing, Internet research, simple graphic design, an introduction to Microsoft Office Suite, Google Applications and basic computer programming.

As students transition to middle and high school, they have access to Google Education Suite web based applications. This allows them to learn in a collaborative work environment where they can be creative and share their ideas.

For advanced high school students, we offer an IT apprenticeship program where students can learn additional hardware and software skills. Additionally, students can take advanced courses in: Computer Management, Logic & Design, Network Management, and Security.

The technology skills students develop are designed to prepare them for success and help lay a foundation for a variety of career interests such as business, database management, illustration, photography, media design, website design, networking, game creation, video editing, and others.

The elementary visual arts classroom consists of grades kindergarten through 5th grade. Its primary objectives include an enriched and encouraging learning environment along with a challenging and relevant curriculum. These objectives work to bring each student in every grade to their fullest artistic potential.

Each grade and student is encouraged to use their imagination and creativity on a different level. Students participate in creating crafts, drawings, paintings, and three dimensional projects, every year building upon what they learned the previous year.

MCA students are encouraged to develop musical skills for ministry, enjoyment, and brain development. Strings, band instruments, and piano lessons are offered.

In addition, students participate in vocal class, which teaches concepts such as rhythm, pitch, form, style, musical terminology, and performance skills. A variety of songs are learned from inspirational gospel to classical music, and songs are sometimes sung in foreign
languages. Many selections have motions or sign language added to them, while other selections have harmony.

Every class begins with a worship or praise song to convey the message that blessing God, the creator of music, is our number one priority!

Elementary Worship Team is offered after school once a week. This team is responsible for leading worship for elementary chapel services. Students learn how to enter into God’s presence and lead others to do the same. We work together to choose the set list, perfect our vocal technique, build our relationship with the Lord, and strive to transfer the passion for worshiping God to our peers.

Athletics is an important part of the MCA experience. We view competition as an excellent opportunity to build Christian character into an individual.

Organized athletics enhances character development and maturity. As a result, our students are taught by their coaches to honor God with a Christian attitude, attain discipline through consistent practice, develop leadership, and work together as a team.

MCA is a member of the OSAA and participates against both private and public schools at the 2A level. In the elementary grades, we offer 5th and 6th grade combined basketball. In middle school, we offer soccer, volleyball and cross country in the fall. Basketball  and cheer are offered in the winter and track and field are offered in the spring.

MCA students are introduced to physical activity and aerobic exercise in a fun learning environment. Students are taught different motor skills and movement patterns through basic skills, activities, sports, and games. The students are encouraged to work as a team and learn how to respectfully motivate each other. They are also given the steps to live a strong and healthy life.

At MCA, our goal is to partner with parents to equip their student for life achievement through academic preparation, character development,spiritual maturity, and a broad exposure to life and vocational opportunities in a supportive Christian environment. We believe that every stage of a child’s life is just as important as the next.
