Mission College Prep has high academic standards and holds students accountable. The curriculum is faith-based education with an emphasis to serve others. The teachers at MCP challenged and encouraged my son, promoting critical, independent thinking. Our youngest is excited to be an incoming Freshman this year, by his choice. We are blessed.
