One of the greatest strengths of Mekeel is our community that is comprised of a diverse group of families that have joined together to pursue Christ, excellent academics, and a robust, well-rounded overall educational experience. Mekeel is about so much more than just “doing school”. We educate with intentionality, striving to raise a competent and passionate next generation for Christ, ready to go out and transform the lives of others. With specially planned retreats, trips, chapel services, and service-learning events, the spiritual formation of our students is the cornerstone of student life at Mekeel. Then, in order to prepare our students to impact the world for Christ in all arenas, our program offers students opportunities in athletics; fine arts through advanced art opportunities, vocal and instrumental lessons, special musical ensembles as well as concert bands and choirs; various clubs; drama productions; student government; honors societies; and more. Mekeel Lions aren't pigeon-holed into one specialized areas; most of our students are athletes AND musicians AND honors students. They may pursue whatever arena interests them for every area holds many opportunities for each student.
