MACA Next Step Adjunct Professors
The MACA Next Step program is a dual-enrollment program that brings college courses to the MACA campus. This allows our juniors and seniors to take college-level courses during their school day on the MACA campus and to begin to create their college transcripts. Another great benefit of this program is that MACA students will be able to take these advanced courses with Christian instructors. While these courses meet the college-level curriculum, student learning outcomes, assessment stipulations and class time requirements of Lancaster Bible College (LBC), they do so while being taught by experienced Christian educators who have met the rigorous approval requirements to be named Adjunct Professors at LBC. Honoring God and providing a Christian classroom environment to our students is foundational to all that MACA does. We know that this is one of the reasons parents send their students to MACA and we are passionate about honoring that faith put in us. These Adjunct Professors have gone through a thorough application and review process by both MACA and LBC to be deemed appropriate to teach. The following Adjunct Professors are our MACA Next Step faculty.
