The Chromebook is an excellent tool for educating our children in today’s technology savvy environment. The Chromebook is portable and lightweight and I like the fact that my middle school student won’t be carrying all his heavy school books home every night to do homework. By working ‘in the cloud’ he will have access to the classwork information he needs, whether it is specific to his class subject or doing research on the internet for a project. Way to go MCA! Great decision to digitize the classroom!

My son is attending Noah’s Ark for 1 1/2 years now. We moved from Germany in February 2011 to Novato and since then he goes to Noah’s Ark. As we are leaving back to Germany soon,I don’t want to miss writing a review about this school. As you can imagine it was hard for a 3 year old coming to a foreign country with not a word of english. But everybody was so welcoming and friendly that it didn’t take long and he was all excited about going there. The teachers are very nice, the classrooms are big, full of fun stuff and clean and they do always great things with the kids. Since he is there, he attended 3 classrooms and I can only say good things about all of the teachers. My son LOVES his preschool and so do I. Just have a look and you will find out!

Both of my sons have attended this preschool and it has been a wonderful experience. My older son had previously been at another school which I did not feel prepared him well academically. Noah’s Ark provided him with a much richer learning environment. The teachers, many of whom have Master’s degrees, provide a rich, culturally diverse experience. My younger son currently attends and is very happy there. His teachers are warm and caring, going out of their way to great him personally every morning. He is being well prepared for kindergarten, which is very important for me. The staff is always very accommodating of my schedule and it is easy to have extended hours on those days when it is unexpectedly needed.

My 3 kids have been going to MCA (and their Noah’s Ark Preschool) since they are 2. They LOVE the school and the teachers!!! We love the school so much that we drive 45 minutes to school everyday. My 1st grade son wrote me “Thank you, Mom, for choosing me a great school. I love my school.” as his Thanksgiving letter-writing assignment. My middle son, who is less outgoing, shines in his class because of the small class size (9 in 1st grade and 14 in 2nd grade this year). He gets the attention and encouragement he needs to boost his leearning. I haven’t seen him getting so involved in a group setting anywhere else. The teachers and principal make it a goal to partner with the parents in raising their children. They even have gymnastics and music classes incorporated as extra curriculum activities and my kids love them!

All three of our sons attended MCA from Grades 1-8 and received a first-rate education. The teachers provide a lot of personal attention, the classes are small and there is a strong focus on character development which supports what parents are teaching at home. Today, our oldest son is in a PhD fellowship at an Ivy League college, our middle son graduated from college earlier this year and our youngest is in his senior year after spending a year abroad studying in Europe. They all are thankful for the foundation they received at MCA. Highly recommended.
My daughter is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley. Recently she told me how thankful she was that I sent her to Marin Christian Academy because the study habits, learning skills and academics she learned were very important to her success in college.
My children attended the preschool and are currently enrolled in the elementary. This is a great school to be a part of. Every parent can be actively involved in their children’s education with the volunteer program. The academic level is very high and I look forward to my children progressing through middle school here.

Our daughter was enrolled at Noah’s Ark/MCA from preschool all the way through middle school. She received an excellent and thoroughly well-rounded education from the loving, committed, quality teaching staff at this fully accredited school. She was definitely well-prepared for a demanding, rigorous high school program. All of the teaching is Christ-centered and in a loving, supportive, safe environment where the students grow and are nurtured to reach their goals and achieve their full potential as ambassadors in the earth for Christ.
Not only is the education great, but the love and care for each child is laudible. Worth every dollar. Our sons are living proof of the positive impact this school has on kids.
