Parent/Teacher conferences are a part of healthy communication between
school and home. Lower School has required conferences each October
with optional conferences in the spring. Middle & Upper School fall
conferences are encouraged and may be scheduled, but are not required.
Please feel free to request a meeting, if necessary. MCA believes that before approaching the Principal, the first point
of contact should be the classroom teacher or coach. If your student
has a concern, please encourage him or her to talk to the teacher first.

delinquency. All immunizations must be completed by the first day of
school; students will not be permitted to pick up their schedules or
attend class without appropriate documentation of immunizations. The
only exceptions to this rule include medical exemptions and exemptions
for reason of conscience. If your student falls in either of these
categories, please contact a school nurse prior to the start of

asthma. Please send an additional inhaler to be kept in the clinic.

Since McKinney Christian Academy’s beginning in 1992, the tradition of
philanthropic giving has been important. That tradition of giving
continues today as families, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends support
the school in its development efforts, thereby affirming the school’s
mission. Gifts allow the school to start new programs, strengthen
existing ones, provide financial aid to qualified students and engage a
dedicated faculty and staff. Your gifts provided salaries and
professional development, technology improvements, athletic activities,
fine arts ventures, and student mission outreach. The ways in which you
can financially support MCA are varied and rewarding. Participation by
the entire MCA community is the key to our continued success. We invite
you to get involved!
The Development Office is responsible for all fundraising efforts at
McKinney Christian Academy. In addition, the department oversees
community relation, marketing/communications, and special events such as
Mustang Fun Run, Spring Golf Tournament and
Grandparents/Great Friends Day.
