This month’s front cover features students from Mt. Bethel Christian Academy (MBCA). Last year, Mt. Bethel Christian Academy celebrated two decades of distinction and graduated its first senior class with a 100% college acceptance rate. Now, in its 21st year, the Academy has even greater cause for jubilation as it is recognized by the Department of Education as a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School. Mt. Bethel is in elite company as one of only 50 private schools in the nation to be so awarded. The Academy is a JK-12 preparatory program that holds a dual accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS).

Mt. Bethel Christian Academy’s main campus (JK-8th grade) is located at 4385 Lower Roswell Road in Marietta/East Cobb. The Academy has a North Campus for students 9th-12th grade and is located at 2509 Post Oak Tritt Road in Marietta/East Cobb.
