Civic Engagement Program

MCA encourages students to participate in various volunteer programs working with the local community. MCA actively creates opportunities for students to offer regular volunteer services for those who are in need of help in the neighboring communities. Each year, MCA donates food and other items prepared, collected, and packed by our students to Guseong Community Center - to be distributed to aged citizens in the region living without family support.

MCA students are encouraged to take part in leadership programs,
including the School Leadership Camp held twice a year.

Leadership Programs

MCA students are encouraged to take part in leadership programs, including the MCA Leadership Camp held twice a year. At the camp, many students find their leadership potential and learn useful skills. Selected students will also be given opportunities to take part in good leadership programs organized by overseas education institutes, such as the program run by Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth.

Character Development Programs 

■ Gardening Program

The nature-friendly environment at MCA campus enables students not only to appreciate nature, but also to be involved in keeping flowers and trees beautiful through gardening experiences. MCA specially invites an expatriate farming professional for the program.

  

■ Advisory Hours

MCA students participate in our unique 30-minute advisory times regularly.

During the session, students in small groups have opportunities to actively communicate with the advisor to talk about any issues they may have in their school lives. Advisor teachers apply a specific theme (e.g., friendship or ethics) while running the session.
