Our History

Metro Christian Academy was founded in 1983 by parents and educators with a desire and a vision to create an interdenominational school focused on Christian values. For families seeking a Christ-centered, high-quality, well-respected school ~ parents need not look any further.

Metro is a state-accredited college preparatory school serving P3 through 12th-grade students on one campus. The school is committed to providing an environment in which faith and learning are inseparable and where students, families, and employees see the Gospel of Christ as the foundation for Christian education. Relying on its excellent faculty, Metro’s teachers provide a robust and content-rich curriculum integrated with biblical truths of scripture to help students discover their vast possibilities and potentialities. Graduates of Metro are well prepared to enter into a broken world and confidently share the love of Christ while serving as successful leaders in their individual and varied career paths.

Situated on over 50 acres in the heart of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Metro Christian Academy’s engaging and family-friendly campus includes a P3– 12th-grade education facility, a stand-alone 5th-grade learning center, outdoor learning spaces, playgrounds, a variety of athletic practice and game fields, an indoor practice facility, a renovated football stadium, a state-of-the-art Learning Commons and Media Library. There are priceless benefits to having all of our students on one campus. Routinely, you will find our youngest students interacting with our upper-level students — learning leadership skills by example at a very early age and creating friendships to last a lifetime.


Our campus is conveniently located off of 61st street in a centralized part of Tulsa with access to Riverside Drive, Peoria, and Lewis Avenues.
