Monclova Christian Academy is a private, Christian school in Monclova, Ohio, United States, southwest of Toledo. It is a ministry of Monclova Road Baptist Church.

Monclova Christian Academy was founded in 1999 by Russell Merrin, pastor of Monclova Road Baptist Church. Throughout that first year, only 30 students were enrolled. The first graduate of Monclova Christian Academy was Brian Keel who graduated with a class size of 1. Since then, the school has grown drastically to over 200 students.

Later, a graduate of MCA and son of the founder (Derek Merrin) became the mayor of Waterville, Ohio.

Although the school is small, it has participated in athletics with both private and public schools. Monclova Christian Academy's athletics include: soccer, volleyball, basketball, tennis, and track. A cheerleading team has also been added in past years and continues to encourage school spirit during basketball games along with the MCA Pep Band.

In 2008, a Pre-School class was added to the school. This was a result of an expansion on the main church building that was added on to the building.
