Mount Airy Christian Academy exists for the purpose of maturing its students academically, physically, spiritually, and socially.
“…Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.”
MACA’s Fine Arts program includes an enrichment class for all elementary students (K-5), a curriculum-wide art program for middle school (6-8), and Studio Art, Drama, Band, and Worship Team opportunities for secondary students (6-12). MACA artists present their work at various venues in the area (both on and off-campus) as well as participate annually in the ACSI Fine Arts Festival at both the middle school and high school levels.
MACA Internship Program
The MACA Internship Program is a 35-hour, week-long professional shadowing experience in which all MACA juniors and seniors participate. The purpose of the program is to aid MACA students in making important decisions concerning the career to which God is calling them. Through this opportunity, MACA students are enabled to explore fields of employment, make valuable contacts in potential career areas, and learn job skills not normally available to most high school students. While all MACA internships result in valuable professional networking opportunities, many have also culminated in full or part-time job offers for MACA students.

National Honor Society
The MACA chapters of the National Honor Society and Junior National Honor Society recognize MACA students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service and character. Members are selected based on a required minimum GPA, an application process, and a review by a council of faculty members. Membership in this prestigious organization is highly selective and, therefore, a great honor. NHS and NJHS members participate in service opportunities and leadership and learning programs.
Student Council Association
The MACA Student Council Association is a student-led organization designed to develop tomorrow’s leaders today through a variety of service opportunities and representative responsibilities. The SCA functions on both the middle and high school levels, with each grade level (6-12) choosing a class president and vice president. In addition, two teams consisting each of a president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and chaplain, serve their respective peers as representatives and leaders at the middle and high school levels. The MACA SCA promotes student involvement, organizes campus events, and encourages volunteerism among all MACA secondary students.
