Friends of Mt. Zion Christian Academy (FMZCA)


The Friends of Mt. Zion Christian Academy is a group that meets approximately three (3) times a year to assist the administration of the school in development and fund raising. They plan a yearly fund raising project (grant writing, support through contact, innovations, and campaigns) that will focus on the growth of the school. We are grateful for the help and dedication of our friends.
