A History of Watching God "Move Mountains"

Mount Paran Christian School has grown and expanded more than we could ever have asked or imagined since its formation in 1976. Since the humble start as the Early Learning Center off Mount Paran Road in Atlanta, the school's rapid growth continued to the Mount Paran Central location in Marietta in 1985. In 2003, Mount Paran Christian School moved to its permanent 68-acre campus location in the shadow of Kennesaw Mountain. 

MPCS has stayed true to its mission and, as a result, has been blessed by tremendous families in our community seeking a rigorous Christian education for their children. Enrollment now stands at more than 1,300 students and 1,000+ alumni. The impact of fusing faith and intellect within a PK-12 education has profoundly impacted His kingdom for eternity. 

Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.

—Matthew 17:20


Established 1976

Mount Paran Christian School has stayed true to its mission through transition and growth throughout our 45+ year journey.

Going to the mountains is like going home.

What's Next?

Almost 20 years later, the original MPCS Campus Master Plan was completed with the construction of the Murray Innovation Center. A new 20-year plan has been developed to enhance current facilities and campus venues and to project for the future of innovative learning and Christian community on our campus.

We committed to MPCS for our children after an in-depth search of area schools, both public and private. We felt strongly that, in addition to solid academics, we wanted the school environment, teachers, and administration to reinforce what we were teaching at home. The Christian-focused environment and expectations, combined with small class sizes and abundant academic opportunities, have provided a great education and foundation for our children's success. K.
