General School Mission

"Our goal is simple. We prepare children for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning. Our directresses are committed to ensuring that your child receives a broad strong academic education in the context of a carefully planned, stimulating environment. Through proven methods, we help children develop the essential foundational habits, attitudes, self esteem, skills and ideas that will shape the way they discover, learn and succeed in life. Research has shown that the best predictor of future success is a positive sense of self-esteem. MCA's program based on self-directed, non-competitive activities, helps children develop strong self images and the confidence to face challenges and change with optimism"
