Collegedale Academy: Upcoming Opportunities

The McDonald Road Church works very hard to support each ministry of our church body. As you know, Collegedale Academy is our K-12 educational and ministry partner; also known as a “constituent church.”

We support Adventist Education in a variety of ways at the McDonald Road Church. Our hope is that you are able to find the best educational opportunity for your family with the Collegedale Academy being a strong consideration.

Families and their students are welcome to visit each campus. Individualized tours and “shadow a peer” for a day are welcomed by appointment (contact information is at the end of this letter). As listed below there are group events for a wide range of ages to join together to learn what CA has to offer and how the school may be a good fit for your family.

Academy Day
Collegedale Academy invites all high school aged students to come see what it’s like to be a part of the CA family on Friday, January 17, 2020, from 9 am – 2 pm.
