Purpose and Mission

Our Mission: “Educating for Life and Eternity”

Our Purpose

“Showing Jesus to children and helping them grow as Jesus did in wisdom, in stature, and favor with God and man.”

Our Strategy

Mount Dora Christian Academy strives to help students strengthen their relationship with Christ, build a foundation of moral character, and achieve academic success. You will see these values in every aspect of our school.



Strengthen Faith

MDCA holds firm to our foundation that has guided us since our founding in 1945. Our founders sought to create a special place in Central Florida where children can grow spiritually and academically. We encourage our students to strengthen their faith in Christ by including chapel and a Bible class in their daily schedule. Chapel gives MDCA students an opportunity to focus their minds and hearts on God. It is a constant reminder that God is on their side. Bible class curriculum allows students to explore the scriptures and learn from the examples of Christian faith and character. These opportunities encourage students to strengthen their faith with their peers and uplift one another through their experiences and challenges.


Build Character

Faith defines character, and as we strengthen each student’s faith and relationship with God, we help further build character. Through athletics, service groups, and class group projects, students gain real-life experience in leadership, communication, problem-solving, and volunteering their time for others. Our teachers are committed not only to teaching MDCA students using a robust curriculum but also to provide each student with an opportunity to learn how to become a contributing member of society. Teachers and administrators encourage students to excel in the classroom and in life.


Inspire Achievement

As a leader in the pursuit of academic excellence throughout the state of Florida, MDCA provides a challenging curriculum to prepare each student for future success. Through cutting-edge teaching strategies and learning activities, instructional support, precision assessment, and a wealth of other resources, our teachers inspire the best in our students and do all they can to ensure that our students are college and career ready upon graduation. Dual Enrollment and Advanced Placement classes are offered on our campus. MDCA prepares its students for a fast-paced world by using leading-edge technology throughout its curriculum beginning as early as our PreK program. This provides hands-on experience for each student, enabling them to successfully manage the demands of today and the challenges of tomorrow.
