About Us

John & Jan Walsh

After administrating and teaching in several Christian schools, John and Jan Walsh decided to teach their children at home. Jan was delighted with the way home schooling helped her get to know and understand her children. John felt driven to share the how-to's of home schooling with others. In 1982 they founded Midwest Christian Academy with a goal of elevating the quality of home education and making it more rewarding for children and parents alike. For over 27 years, their desire to help other families meet the challenges of homeschooling has not diminished. All their children are now grown, but the Walshes are thrilled to have all their grandchildren being homeschooled.




Fred Moore

Fred Moore has had many years of experience in Christian education. For 25 years, he pastored a church in the Chicago area where he founded a Christian School. He and his wife worked side-by-side in the school where they had the privilege of teaching all six of their own children as well as many others. Their children are now grown and actively serving the Lord today. In 1997 Fred came to serve as Principal of Midwest Christian Academy. His years of experience in individualized education prepared him for understanding the unique needs of home schooling parents.
