Welcome to the Maranatha Christian Academy community. We are excited that you have decided to have your student here at MCA. MCA utilizes multiple mediums for communicating with families: email, social media, phone messaging systems, announcements, fliers, just to name a few. However, the primary tool utilized is the family and student email addresses that are supplied to you within the Office 365 platform. Hopefully, this page, with subsequent instructions and videos will help get you connected to these tools. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are having difficulties, or if you simply have questions. Again, we are truly glad that you have become a part of the Maranatha Christian Academy community.
Parent/Guardian accounts are different than student accounts. While some appear the same (i.e. Office 365,) licensing and permissions are governed by the software providers. Additionally, the permission and information is different based on account type. Please be sure you have confirmed you are signed up for your tools as well as your student.

MCA has special “Appy Hours” that are available for our new and existing families to help them become familiar with our Tech Tools.

New Elementary Parents
Student accounts are different than parent/guardian accounts. Most student accounts will be set up in class or within the first week of school depending on grade enrollment thus, it is possible that some tools will not be available if you try to sign up before school begins. You are invited to sign up here for these tools if you have been informed the tools are available to you or, school has already begun.
MCA Students are introduced formally to their resources within the first few weeks of school. If a family would like to look at the available tools for their students they are able to locate these in the same “Resource Menu” referenced above.
