International Students

McKinney Christian Academy welcomes the addition of international students!  The international students who attend MCA from abroad are in pursuit of an American college preparatory education with a Christian worldview.  At MCA, these students are able to openly speak about Jesus Christ and advance their knowledge of Scripture; all while being embraced by our Christian teachers and students. Students’ behavioral, emotional and social histories must demonstrate maturity and are to be in harmony with the expectations of McKinney Christian Academy. While attending MCA students must live with an approved Christian family.

MCA enjoys the privilege of hosting students from around the world such as Belize, China, Germany, Mexico, South Korea, Jamaica, Vietnam, Zambia, and Taiwan.

Our international students are granted I-20 student status once acceptance is offered.  For additional information visit:
