MCAA officially celebrated the Grand Opening of the Innovative Learning Lab by Microsoft on Wednesday, March 29. Microsoft donated $10,000 to MCAA last year for the creation of a Minecraft inspired Lab at the school. This is the first lab of its kind in the nation sponsored by Microsoft. In less than a year, students have mastered the art of creating digital projects using tools in the lab. It was amazing seeing students communicate about their work.

We have implemented many new initiatives in response to the ever-changing opportunities and challenges of educating and preparing tomorrow's leaders.
Our difference is Excellence, and excellence means remaining focused on our mission "To prepare each of our students through academic achievement for college, career, and life success." We do this by developing curriculum and programs that meet and effectively serve the educational needs of all students, and fulfill the academic rigor demanded by Georgia's new Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
