METRO CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
Located on a 60-acre campus in the heart of Tulsa at 63rd and Trenton, Metro Christian Academy is an independent Christian school serving students age three through 12th grade. They’re all under one roof but with distinct areas for preschool, elementary, middle and high school.
Metro’s Elementary program offers two tracks for students. One features traditional curriculum that students may join at any time. The other is a Spanish Immersion section that students may enter in Pre-K or Kindergarten and continue through 5th grade. Spanish Immersion students become bilingual by learning core subject content in Spanish including history, language arts, science, and math.
Metro’s secondary school offers a range of academic programs including 15 Advanced Placement courses and eight courses for concurrent college credit. Metro offers activities for students of all ages including 11 varsity sports, debate, leadership, missions and fine arts classes like studio art, drama, band and choir.
At the heart of Metro is a sense of community. Students, parents, faculty, and staff all work together to educate and nurture students to reach their full potential. “We work to develop this culture in which everyone knows who you are,” says Adam Taylor, Athletic Director. “You are somebody here. You are someone important.”

School Highlight: Georgia, 4th Grade
Meet Georgia …this fourth grader is a real go-getter.
She loves to read, so she started a student-led book club. More than 20 of her classmates wanted in on the fun and now they meet outside at lunch and discuss the most recent book they picked together.
She loves to write, so she and some of her classmates started turning out newsletters about class happenings. They feature things like a review of the school Christmas play (calling it “pure magic”), an article questioning “Where are all the playground balls going?”, and of course they recognize the four-square “players of the week.” There are even interviews with new students asking, “What do you like about Metro?” with answers ranging from small class sizes to great teachers.
“I was thrilled when these kids decided to take it upon themselves to create these clubs, and coming from a public school, I expected to jump through a lot of hoops for it to happen,” said Leslie, Georgia’s mom. “However, it was really easy, and the teachers were so encouraging and willing to help. I am always amazed at the encouragement the students get when they have an idea.”
Working together to help students achieve their goals, it’s what Metro Christian Academy is all about.
