I understand students arrive at MCA for a wide variety of reasons and it is my goal to create an individualized academic plan for each of my students. This plan will focus on both social/emotional wellbeing and college/career preparedness. It is my pleasure to work with you and look forward to welcoming you to the MCA family.
