MCVA Overview

Mannahouse Christian Academy has a long and successful history of providing a high quality Christian education. The academy began in 1974 as a ministry of Bible Temple, a vibrant local church in Portland, Oregon. We started with 105 students in grades K – 9, and have since grown to over 600 students in preschool through 12th grade in Oregon and Washington. It has truly been a miraculous journey over these past four decades as we have taught, trained, and discipled over 14,000 young people, preparing them to be a transforming influence in the world.
