Preparing for College and Beyond
For more than 35 years, educating 9th- through 12th-grade students within a Christ-centered, college preparatory environment has been and continues to be the focus of Metro Christian Academy’s High School. Walking alongside our students both academically and in community, as students hone their God-given gifts and talents while defining their identity in Christ, are just a few things that set our private school apart.
Integrating a biblical worldview, Metro Christian Academy provides a rigorous scholastic program, enriching and fortifying the mastery of core subject knowledge coupled with the encouragement of Christian virtues and life skills. Students are encouraged to collaborate, create, and communicate with their peers and faculty alike — developing critical thinking and healthy social interaction skills utilized in higher education and future career paths.
Partnering with families, our faculty and staff prioritize the student-teacher relationship, creating an authentic and nurturing culture and working conscientiously to prepare each student for success at the next level of their education and life beyond. An interdisciplinary and experiential learning environment guides students to think critically and problem solve creatively, learn foundational decision-making skills, and forge healthy relationships. Metro students are successful and confident young men and women. By concentrating on each child’s individual potential and gifting, Metro develops and graduates fruitful and joyful students that have been challenged and are equipped, affirmed, and confident in achieving post-graduate endeavors.

There are a variety of factors determining the best academic path for your student, including a student’s strengths and weaknesses, graduation requirements, goals for college and beyond, and time spent on extra-curricular activities. Students and their families are encouraged to review the Course Selection Forms by Grade.

Academic and Collegiate Advisement for Metro and Beyond
Providing excellence in Christian, college preparatory education, Metro ensures our students are challenged in the classroom, no matter the level of courses chosen. At Metro Christian Academy, our academic advisement team partners with the student and their family, determining the best academic path and providing a quality, comprehensive and individualized academic plan for each of our students. Beginning early freshman year, each student meets with an academic advisor to design a four-year plan of study. At any time throughout the school year, students may meet with their advisor to review, modify, and plan for future courses. Additionally, students who are in need of assistance with personal issues or who are in crisis are offered personalized spiritual and guidance counseling.
Because Metro prepares our students for scholastic study here on campus and for collegiate level success later, college advisement begins early, helping students identify their academic strengths and areas of interests beyond the classroom. No small part of college readiness is a student’s involvement in extra-curricular activities — from athletics to fine arts and service projects to leadership, the Metro difference sets our students apart and affords them a competitive edge entering college. In fact, Metro students are known throughout Tulsa and its surrounding suburbs for their community outreach, veracity, and eagerness for learning and accomplishment. To ensure that universities recognize our students’ academic and extra-curricular achievements, our college placement counselor works individually with students, providing countless resources, including access to college representatives from top colleges and universities across the country, informational college-preparatory sessions, dedicated meeting time to both students and their parents, and guidance on completing the Common Application.
