About Us

Mt. Bethel Christian Academy is an independent, Christian preparatory school serving students in grades Junior Kindergarten through twelfth grade. The school campuses are located in Marietta, just north of Atlanta in East Cobb County. 

"We choose MBCA year-after-year, school-after-school, because making Disciples is a lot of hard work, and there is a beautiful layering that happens when you have excellence in the classroom and administration that leads to continuity, stability, and loyalty among all the schools. " - Casey, MBCA mom of three.
