Mountain View Christian Academy continues to monitor the events that surround the spread of COVID-19 or Coronavirus worldwide, in the U.S. and in Virginia. We are establishing guidelines based on the evidence presented and the recommendations set forth by the VDH (Virginia Department of Health) and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control).
It is no secret that we as a school are facing some uncharted territory as we like all schools are trying to make wise decisions and plans in light of the pandemic that our country is now under with the Coronovirus (COVID-19).

You can access all of the memos sent out, resources for you to review, and current announcements right here on this page.

Please keep your child home if he or she is manifesting any of the following symptoms:
