MCA Spirit Shop

Located in the portable building south of the Student Life Center. There are reserved Spirit Shop parking spaces available as well as a separate Spirit Shop entrance.  

Online ordering: MCA Spirit Shop

There are many different combinations of uniform pieces that are acceptable. Please review the Parent-Student Handbook for up-to-date, approved options.

We also have a Uniform Resale Shop located next to the MCA Spirit Shop. These are gently used uniforms and sweatshirts that can be purchased at a fraction of the cost.  When your child outgrows his/her uniform, consider donating it to the Uniform Resale so that another family can benefit! 

Spirit Wear

Spirit wear is defined as MCA-inspired T-shirts, sweatshirts, and other items that can be purchased at the MCA Spirit Shop.  These items can be worn on Fridays, in place of the usual uniform requirement (for all grades). 

Parent-Teacher Conferences

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 and 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.

Parent-Teacher Fellowship (PTF)

PTF was organized to enhance the relationship between MCA families and the school.  Its membership includes all parents and teachers at MCA.  The PTF supports the teachers and staff by giving gifts for Teachers/Staff, providing meals during in-service days and the ACSI convention, hosting an Annual Christmas Luncheon, and coordinating our Room Mom program. They help organize and fund many student events throughout the year. More information about PTF is listed on our website under "All School" then by clicking the "Parent-Teacher Fellowship" icon. 

Student Health Clinic

MCA has a full-time nurse on staff to provide immediate medical care and to promote health and safety on campus. The school nurse also maintains our student health records and keep student immunizations current. All immunization records will be reviewed by the school nurse.  If there is a delinquency, parents will be notified by email- informing them of the 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, an Affidavit of Exemption must be provided prior to the start of school.

If ill, students may NOT return to class until fever-free, without fever reducing medication and/or have not vomited for 24 hours.

Prescription and non-prescription medications are to be provided by the parent and will be kept in the clinic for students.  Medication must be in the original container.  A medication authorization form must be completed and submitted with the medication.  Students are not allowed to keep medication with them.  The only exception to this is rescue medications such as inhalers and/or epi pens.  The clinic is located in the lower school office.


Cafeteria

Students may bring a lunch from home, or they may purchase a hot lunch from our cafeteria, provided by Guess Who's Coming to Dinner.  Look for the yearly menu and the process to set up your account on our website - just click"Lunch Program" on the main page.

Development

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.
