The Upper School at Midland Classical Academy goes on a High School Retreat each September at Deer Creek Camp in the Texas Hill Country. Students in grades 9-12 go to Deer Creek for a week of relationship-building, biblical teaching, and interactive activities. The Juniors and Seniors leave for camp on Monday and come back on Friday while the Sophomores and Freshmen depart for camp on Tuesday and return to MCA on Friday. The students enjoy games, a challenge-by-choice ropes course and many opportunities to slow down and get to know their classmates and tutors. Teaching times are led by tutors and all activities are facilitated by MCA and Deer Creek Staff.
