MCC Academy is a state-recognized, parochial elementary institution, nationally accredited by Advanced. The curriculum of the school is aligned with standards proposed by ISBE (Illinois State Board of Education). There is great excitement among the community over the recent expansion of the school through the purchase of a second facility in Skokie, IL, located a few short miles from the flagship location in Morton Grove, IL. MCC Academy offers a highly competitive secular education curriculum for students in preschool through 8th grades with students consistently scoring on average in the 89th percentile on standardized tests of basic skills. For 25 years, MCC Academy has continued to grow its enrollment through providing a top-notch secular education complemented by contemporary coursework in Islamic studies designed to build and refine character among our students, helping them develop a beautiful Muslim-American identity and the knowledge to help them positively impact the culture in which they live.

MCC Academy has a renowned, prestigious reputation as one of Chicago’s best Islamic schools. When MCCA opened its doors in August 1990, it had a total enrollment of 25 students and only offered Kindergarten, First and Second grades. As a testimony to our tremendous growth, MCC Academy now has an enrollment upwards of nearly 675 students, over 70 staff members and offers preschool through 8th grades plus a full-time boys and girls Quran memorization (hifdh) program. This growth is no doubt attributed to the overall goal of the school: To provide an excellent education program in an Islamic environment for Muslim youth. Consequently, the MCC Academy staff and students work together to attain this objective reflected by the school’s motto: Building Character and Developing Minds.
