MCAA in the news! MCAA was the only high school in the entire area with a 100% graduation rate and a 0% dropout rate. Even better is that those are "cohort" percentages, meaning they come from tracking our students for the last four years and they are the best in the state. See the whole Appeal-Democrat article here: Local Graduation Rates

MCAA is now accepting applications from new students for the 2015-2016 school year. Access the new student application in the Academics section of the website or here: Enrollment App 2015.doc

MCAA is one of only four local high schools to have its students score higher than the state average on the 2014 SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test). Over half of our 2014 graduates took the SAT (highest of any school in the area). Read the article in the Appeal-Democrat  Four Y-S schools top state SAT average
