The passion to unite home, school, and church stems directly from God's Word. Our teachers know and love each child and encourage them to succeed, consistently taking the time to aid in setting personal goals and helping to develop natural talents.

By incorporating a college preparatory curriculum, the academic rigor of Mount Paran Christian School is intended to develop enthusiastic and confident life-long learners who strive to achieve their personal best in everything they do. Our students grasp a genuine thirst for knowledge that cultivates success at the college level.

Students thrive with so many opportunities to become involved in the various facets of school life, allowing them to test their abilities and discover their true potential. This is certainly true to the mission at MPCS, whether it is in the classroom, on stage, in weekly chapel, or on the field of play.

As a covenantal Christian school, MPCS trusts each of its participating families share a commitment to the Christian faith and involvement in the ministry of a local church of any denomination. Parental statements of faith are an important part of the partnership between MPCS and our families. More than 120 churches are represented by the MPCS student-body. Our school community is unapologetic about our commitment to a Christ-centered education and seeks to integrate that faith in all aspects of school life.


Providing academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment, Mount Paran Christian School unites with home and church to prepare servant-leaders to honor God, love others, and walk in Truth.

A Collegiate-Like Campus

Located on 68 acres in northwest Cobb County, the MPCS campus sits in the shadow of beautiful Kennesaw Mountain. The campus includes a historic cabin and lake, extensive athletics facilities, Dozier Hall (high school), Sewell Cottage (preschool), multiple playgrounds, Mulkey Building (administration, lower school, middle school, two gyms, two media centers, dining hall), and the Murray Arts Center (state-of-the-art performing arts facility). The new Murray Innovation Center opened last year and is the crowning jewel for innovative academic instruction.

“The experiences I had at Mount Paran Christian School are absolutely unparalleled, and I could not have wished for a better place to have been shaped into a daughter of Christ, a student, a performer, and a friend. When you walk onto the MPCS campus, you are stepping into a place where people love intentionally, learn ceaselessly, worship proudly, play passionately, and live fearlessly. You are becoming a part of a family.”
