Mercer Christian Academy is a ministry partnership between Johnston Chapel Baptist Church and Maranatha Baptist Church. MCA is a private, non-profit Christian school grades K3-12.  We strive to offer high academic and spiritual standards to the families of Mercer and surrounding counties. Since 1980, MCA has been fulfilling its mission to assist parents and the local Bible-believing church in the task of training their children to reach their fullest potential, both academically and spiritually, recognizing each as a unique creation of God.


Our Nationally standardized achievement test scores are above county, state, and national levels, reflecting our dedication to academic excellence. At the elementary level, MCA offers a traditional classroom setting with a focus on the BASICS, reading (phonics-based), writing, and arithmetic. Our secondary program stresses readiness for college, the workplace, and successful Christian living. At MCA, students can choose between three different diploma tracks: a general diploma, a college preparatory diploma, or an advanced college preparatory diploma. MCA also offers dual credit (college and high school credit) courses.


To aid academic and spiritual development, MCA offers a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in these clubs, student activities, and service projects, which include American Christian Honor Society, Student Council, Junior Civitan, Yearbook, and more. MCA has also developed a reputation for competitive, state championship level sports programs. Interscholastic sports are offered in basketball, volleyball, soccer, and track.

Our school was recently ranked 5th among the “Best Private High Schools in West Virginia”.
