Middle School Information
At Mannahouse Christian Academy, we understand that the middle school years are one of the most critical stages in a young person’s emotional and social development. That’s why, along with helping students pursue excellence in their academic course work and spiritual development, we also create an environment where middle school students can grow and thrive in a supportive and cooperative social environment.
Middle school students have an opportunity to take high school level classes, giving them an academic advantage, and work on team projects in the classroom.
Students are offered a variety of elective classes. They participate in weekly small group devotional classes and have an opportunity to take part in out of town events for outdoor school and the Washington D.C. trip.
Sports more important both in P.E. classes and interscholastic team athletics.
Middle school academics includes high school preparatory coursework in English, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science.
Paramount for every student at MCA is spiritual development. At every level, prayer, devotions, chapel services, scripture memorization, and Bible are incorporated into good conduct and scholastic achievement.

Success in today’s world and marketplace requires increased proficiency with the digital world. That’s why throughout all grade levels, we make technology a regular part of the academic curriculum. Mannahouse Christian Academy is equipped with multiple computer labs that 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 and design software.
All students in 6th-12th grades 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.
In middle school, students continue to develop their skills in Microsoft Office Applications such as Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. Robotics, Digital Art, and the essentials of computer programming are an additional elective that students can choose from.
As technology advances and new discoveries are made virtually every day, we believe it is imperative that every one of our students graduates knowing the most up-to-date information from the many different fields of science. We believe it is equally important that they have experience using modern, state-of-the-art equipment.
That’s why Mannahouse Christian Academy is furnished with a well equipped science and physics lab. As the sciences continue to move forward, it is vital that we as an educational institution continue upgrading our science department and science lab with state-of-theart equipment and materials so that students can perform hands-on experiments. Our science lab is an indispensable asset to our students’ science education, allowing biology students to do dissections, chemistry students to perform chemical reactions, and physics students to study mass and force with applied observation.
CHOIR This course provides a variety of singing opportunities for students. Vocal techniques and music reading are emphasized, and students are given the opportunity to explore various musical sources and styles. Students should also be expected to perform for various audiences throughout the school year.
BAND Band welcomes all middle school students that play or would like to play a wind, brass, percussion, or stringed instrument. The band concentrates on individual development and group performances of high quality music. Scheduled performances are a required element of this course.
ATHLETICS is an important part of the Mannahouse Christian Academy experience. We believe organized athletics can offer students a unique opportunity to develop essential life skills such as teamwork, sportsmanship, discipline, respect for rules and authority, dealing with both success and disappointment, and the proper role of competition, all in a fun, controlled and encouraging environment. MCA is a member of the OSAA and participates against both private and public schools at the 2A level. We offer soccer, cross country, and girls volleyball
in the fall, basketball and cheer in the winter, and track in the spring. Our coaching staff places athlete safety and character
development foremost among the skills to be taught and displayed in athletic competition. Additionally, coaches provide well organized
practices, which focus on fundamentals, and camps for those desiring additional skill development. As a result, MCA teams have earned the prestigious Sportsmanship Award on many occasions and have enjoyed success at both the district and statewide levels.
All middle school students participate in physical education. Students are exposed to both health and fitness theory and a broad cross-section of sport and fitness activities. Our goal is to lay a foundation where students make physical health, strength, and activity a part of their adult lifestyle. For students desiring to pursue strength and fitness at the highest levels, our campus features a well equipped strength and fitness center. All MCA P.E. classes and electives are taught in a supervised environment by qualified teachers.
The Academic Counselor will connect with students to share elective options prior to finalizing schedules.
