Welcome to Mt. Juliet Christian Academy


Located fifteen minutes from Nashville, Tennessee, Mt. Juliet Christian Academy (MJCA) is a private Christian school that is a ministry of First Baptist Church Mt. Juliet. The church and school sit on 54 acres of land less than one mile from Interstate 40. MJCA opened its doors in 1979 with grades 1-3. An additional class was added yearly until 1989 when the first class graduated from MJCA. We desire to partner with families in developing students to think, lead, and live based upon a biblical worldview. As a college-preparatory school that serves over 670+ students in PK-1 through 12th grade, we extend a variety of opportunities through numerous academic, fine arts, and athletic programs, including a formal leadership academy. Founded in 1979, MJCA is celebrating over 40 years of providing a quality, biblically-based education to greater Mt. Juliet.

Guided by our mission, we approach education with the goal of "Enriching Minds, Engaging Hearts, and Equipping Hands" with excellence for the glory of God! Rigorous curriculum, including advanced placement courses, are all taught within a biblical worldview framework. Active learning in every classroom meets the highest academic standards while holding a strong, Christ-centered foundation. 

We partner with our parents in their commitment to raising Godly children, with the earnest desire to see our students fully put their hope in the Lord. We take this responsibility incredibly seriously, and we consider it our calling and our honor to serve our MJCA families in this manner.
