The campus of Mt. Vernon Christian Academy is located on five wooded acres just off of the I-57/I-64 Interchange on the south side of Mt. Vernon. We are strategically located less than one mile from the area's largest employer, Continental Tire. Rend Lake, renowned for its camping and fishing facilities, and Rend Lake College are within a ten minute drive.
Under the leadership of Dr. Ron Reynolds, Mt. Vernon Christian Academy was founded in 1975 as a ministry of Mt. Vernon Baptist Temple. What began as a grade school only program has grown to include grades Kindergarten, Grade School, Junior High and High School. The school employs a staff of several full and part-time teachers, as well as volunteer staff who provide caring and Godly instruction for all students.
MVCA offers all traditional courses and several electives. Extracurricular activities include athletic competitions and music and drama performances. We also offer a convenient and affordable Home School Program for parents who choose to educate their children at home, as well as for older students wishing to complete their high school education and earn a high school diploma. A diploma from Mt. Vernon Christian Academy is valid for attending private and public universities and for entrance into military service.
