Welcome from the Principal

Principal Franca Sheehy




It is my hope that from your visit to our site, you will become more aware of who we are and what we are trying to accomplish at Mt. Zion Christian Academy.  Our needs are great; our hopes are high; and our faith is strong.  We are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of our students and the community.  We want to ensure that our students are productive citizens who are well-prepared for a brighter future and who can give back to their families, their community, and society.

Each morning our students recite the pledge of Allegiance to the flag, the Christian pledge, the pledge to the Bible and our school motto…. “I am a Mt. Zion Christian Academy student ready to learn”……. “I will respect myself, people and property”…… “I will be kind and thoughtful toward others”.  These are some of the values that we are consistently modeling and developing in our students. We know that the fair and kind treatment of others is essential to their success in becoming great leaders in society. Daily exposure to these values will be the lessons for which they can draw when faced with decisions and knowing what feels right and just.

Mount Zion Christian Academy is where all children learn and where each child is valued for his/her own abilities, talents and learning styles.  Mount Zion Christian Academy has a dedicated and talented staff.  The staff emphasizes a goal of success for every child in the learning process.  To fulfill this goal, we incorporate interesting and innovative experiences into our curriculum. Together, the staff, administration and parents of this school are a team, and parents are the most vital link in our children’s education.  Parents must embrace our philosophy and mission for the sake of their children.  I am excited about the possibilities for our students and anticipate many exciting, challenging and fun filled educational opportunities.

Our students need to be 21st century learners with a solid educational foundation.  Our quest is to make a difference in the lives of our students through education, faith and love. We would encourage you to visit us and tour our school.  Hopefully, you will be able to see the positive impact that we are making in the lives of our students.  I look forward to your visit.
