The philosophy of MFCA focuses on bringing the home, church and school into a partnership for the purpose of training the next generation. Christian Education is defined as the life-long, Bible-based, Christ-centered process of leading a child into a new identity with Christ, developing a child according to his/her specific abilities given to him by Christ, so that a child is empowered to live a life characterized by love, trust, and obedience to Christ. In keeping with that philosophy, MFCA considers the following:
 
  • Families who are growing in their personal Christian walk and are involved in a local Bible-believing church, Mesquite Friendship Christian Academy requires that at least one parent have a personal saving relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • Students whose academic records demonstrate proven capabilities to succeed at Mesquite Friendship Christian Academy, Student records are carefully evaluated during the application process. Students should be performing at or above grade level.
  • Students whose recommendations show a behavioral history that matches the behavioral expectations of Mesquite Friendship Christian Academy. Students who have been expelled should not apply until they have completed a successful year in another school.
