    • Curriculum

      MPCA uses the ® (HighReach Learning) curriculum which is a research based, thematic, hands-on learning system which blends teacher facilitated and child initiated activities. We also teach Spanish, Music, Bible, PE and Garden.

  • At McDonough Presbyterian Children’s Academy we create a loving environment in which your child can grow both intellectually and spiritually.

    • Catering to your special child

      We realize that every child is unique and special. Therefore we keep our classes small and provide two team members in each room so your child can receive the attention he/she deserves and needs.

    • What makes us unique

      We are proud to be the only preschool in the area with an Outdoor Classroom and dedicated Garden teacher and curriculum. Students learn about plants, soil, water conservation and more.

    • Teachers

      Many of our teachers are state certified or have years of experience in the classroom.

    • Paraprofessionals

      Paraprofessionals assist the teachers with the day-to-day activities in the classroom.

  • Our Classes

    We offer Pre-K 1 through Kindergarten as well as Spanish, Bible, Music, Library, PE and Garden.
  • Large enough to meet your childs needs, but small enough to need you.

  • At MPCA we encourage families to play an active role in their child’s education.  We have a committed PTO, and we invite families to participate in a variety of events throughout the year.

    • Can’t not say thank you enough to all the wonderful teachers at MPCA that taught Reed over the last 4 years!!! He is absolutely thriving in the public schools this year!!!

    • I love this school. The teachers treat the children like they are their own. My one year old son finished his first year knowing all his letters, colors, and shapes. Now at the end of his two year old class he can count to twenty and is starting to recognize patterns and quantities. I know that he is in capable hands at MPCA.

    • Our daughter loved her experience at MPCA. She was engaged and excited about school every day. At pick-up, she couldn’t wait to tell me about all the cool things she’d done, show me her artwork, and/or teach me the songs she’d learned. It was the reaction every parent longs for in their child to a good school. The school provides a warm, nurturing environment that truly brings out the best in the kids. The caliber of kids and teachers at the school is top notch.

    • I have 2 children attending MPCA, and could not be happier. I have seen both of my children blossom and grow as individuals, and develop a passion for learning. I plan for both children to continue through Kindergarten at MPCA because of the small class size, amazing teaching staff, and wonderful curriculum.
