    My family has been part of the MPCS community for going on sixteen years, and there is NO PLACE LIKE MPCS! Everything is done with excellence and love and Christ-centeredness. The academics, athletics, arts, facilities, chapels, technological advancements, faculty, administrators, and even the food are the BEST! Graduates are well-rounded and feel incredibly prepared for college and can defend their faith in God. The study-abroad opportunities and mission trips offer amazing chances to discover the world and learn about other cultures. The student body and staff are becoming more and more diverse each year - a testament to the family atmosphere. I am proud to be involved with this school - especially as they launch into building an innovation center for high school that is likely to achieve national recognition. The tuition isn't cheap, but it's a worthy investment into the intentional development of the children - spirit, body, and mind.

    My daughter moved to Mount Paran Christian as a 6th grade student and graduated 7 years later. The teachers are caring and compassionate, and they seek to know the student as an individual. There are a variety of extra-curricular activities in athletics, arts, clubs, community service, etc. There is most certainly a feeling of "family" on campus where people know one another and welcome new families to join in the journey of education. The chapel services are wonderful...non-denominational worship and speakers. We were well-pleased with the education she received, and we feel she was prepared for college. I highly recommend Mount Paran Christian!
    My children started attending MPCS after only ever being home-schooled. It was the perfect fit for our family! They felt welcomed right from the start and made lifetime friends. All three of my kids are now in college or have recently graduated college. They have many fond memories of their experiences. I think the key was they got involved in as much as they were interested in and weren't afraid to try new things. They got a great education! Their teachers challenged them, loved them and sincerely cared for them. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants a Christ-centered environment, wants their children to become servant-leaders, love God & others and walk in truth!
