OUR VALUES

Academic Excellence
At Marlton Christian Academy Elementary School, we value our students’ demonstrated ability to perform, achieve, and excel in scholastic activities. Academic excellence has been identified with achieving high grades and superior performance.  More than just making good grades, though, it is the maximum development of each student’s intellectual capacities and skills in service to humanity.  Learning and performing for each student should be at a challenging level that commensurates with each student’s skills and developed abilities.
Christian Worldview
A worldview is the framework from which we view reality and make sense of life and the world.  Our worldview at Marlton Christian Academy Elementary School is based on the infallible Word of God and is the framework of ideas and beliefs through which we, as individuals and as a group, interpret the world and interact with it.
Leadership Development
Leadership Development is an intentional effort to provide emerging leaders with opportunities to learn, grow, and change.  At Marlton Christian Academy Elementary School, we seek to provide our students with the foundations of becoming individuals with the skills to function effectively as leaders in their home, church, and career.
