"Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong."

Galatians 1:10

Midland Valley Christian Academy has adopted a standard of growth for each student (academically, spiritually, physically and socially) that has been defined in the school goals and demonstrates our commitment to the whole child. These goal statements have been written with the student in my mind. Each outcome demonstrates the level of mastery that each student is expected to achieve. Student development is a process. Each dimension has been created to guide leadership, curriculum, and instruction to ensure that each child receives a supportive, yet rigorous, education through a spiritually guided environment.
