  • Is transportation provided for MCA students?
    Area school districts, with district boundaries no more than 10 miles from MCA, that provide transportation to resident public school students, will provide transportation to and from MCA for students that reside within that school district. Transportation may also be provided to and from daycare facilities. Once your child is accepted to MCA, a school district transportation packet will be sent to you which is required by the state regardless of your child's transportation needs. The following school districts provide transportation to MCA: Crestwood, Hazleton, Hanover, Wilkes-Barre, Nanticoke, Berwick, Northwest, Lake Lehman, Weatherly.
  • Do MCA students wear uniforms?
    Preschool through 4th grade students wear an MCA uniform shirt and approved pants and shoes. 5th through 8th grade students follow a modest business casual dress code, but may also choose to wear the MCA uniform. Please see the Family Handbook which is emailed to all enrolled families for specifics on the dress code. Order forms are sent out in the summer and uniforms are distributed at Meet-the-Teacher Night in August. If students need to purchase additional items during the school year, parents can reach out to director@mtchristian.org to see what is available. If there is enough interest, a second uniform order will be arranged during the winter. Here is a general idea of uniform pieces that may be purchased and worn. Please note, we add additional styles each semester and prices are dependent upon the printing company.

  • Will my child participate in related arts (specials) classes?
    Yes. We believe that God created us to worship Him and the related arts are avenues for us to express our love for the Lord and for others. Students will participate in art, music, physical education, and library on a weekly basis. Additionally, the arts are heavily integrated into MCA's daily curriculum. Clubs and extracurricular activities such as plays, choirs, and instrument ensembles will be available throughout the year.
  • Is there a hot lunch program at MCA?
    MCA is actively partnering with Mountaintop restaurants to provide reasonably priced ($2-3/meal) hot lunches for purchase. Students may also bring a packed lunch from home or purchase shelf stable options. A microwave is available for reheating purposes.

  • What safety precautions do you employ at MCA?
    School safety is of the utmost importance at MCA. We utilize cylindrical lever door locks on all classroom doors and mortise door locks on the exterior doors. Both require keyed entry from the outside, but unobstructed exit in the case of an emergency. Our building has a fully operational fire alarm system and AED. MCA will also be protected via a camera system inside and outside of the building in the near future. School staff utilize a radio system during school which allows for quick, effective communication. Our students' curriculum features health and safety practices to encourage well-being across all facets of life. Students regularly conduct safety drills and staff regularly participate in safety training. All of our safety procedures are outlined in the Family Handbook which is emailed to all registered students.
  • Is MCA associated with a church or a denomination?
    MCA is a ministry of Mountaintop Family Center Church (MFC). MFC and MCA affirm the Statement of Fundamental Truths approved by the General Council of the Assemblies of God.
