Student-Teacher Ratio

School-wide average. Total enrollment is 1,313.

Divisional ratios vary:
Preschool:  8:1
Kindergarten - Grade 2:  9:1
Grades 3-5:  12:1
Middle school:  12:1
High school:  12:1



AP and Honors Courses

MPCS chooses to offer a full array of up to 23 AP courses because they are universally accepted at all universities for college course credit (depending on exam score), whereas dual enrollment credit transfers are not always guaranteed. Currently, 35 honors courses across all subject areas offer additional rigor and demonstrate to colleges a student's willingness to be challenged.


Biblical Integration

Whether in the classroom, on the stage, or on the playing field, at MPCS, Christ is preeminent and His Word is lived-out. Students at every grade level are provided weekly opportunities to practice their faith through worship and Bible classes. As part of our covenantal Christian mission, Biblical immersion happens throughout all academic classes to bolster faith and student discipleship.



MPCS is committed to being a welcoming and nurturing environment with diverse staff and students who reflect God’s Kingdom in all areas, such as diversity in socioeconomics, cultural ethnicity, and learning styles. 


Certified and/or Degreed Teachers

Faculty in preschool through high school are invested, exemplary educators dedicated to impacting student lives for the Kingdom and teaching every subject through the lens of biblical Truth. MPCS teachers are state-certified/degreed in preschool through grade 5, and state-certified and/or hold discipline-specific/advanced degrees in middle and high school. With an average of 13+ years of experience, MPCS faculty and staff are fully-qualified experts in their field. Most importantly, they are committed to the mission and 100% believers in Jesus Christ.



Mount Paran Christian School has more than 1,300 students enrolled. Maximum enrollment is at capacity to ensure small class sizes, and more importantly, to be sure every child is KNOWN and LOVED. 



Acre Campus

Mount Paran Christian School is nestled in the shadow of historic Kennesaw Mountain with easy access to Marietta/Kennesaw, Barrett Parkway, Cobb Parkway, I-75, and I-575. State-of-the-art athletics and performing arts facilities accompany academic buildings, including the newly constructed Murray Innovation Center. Walking paths and a six-acre lake complement our picturesque 68-acre wooded campus encircled by a gated entrance with full-time security. 


Walking Side By Side

MPCS is a missional family. You’ve discovered a covenantal Christian school that comes alongside parents and students in true partnership, guided by God’s word. Whether it be extra guidance in a fundamental math process or parenting tips for each age and stage, there's no doubt that all who set foot on our campus become truly known and loved. 

With our intentional guidance, students reframe their view of obstacles as learning opportunities and seek God amidst the burden. Along the journey, they gain determination to discover and develop their natural, God-given talents. The end result? Confident, life-long learners with a mature faith to MOVE MOUNTAINS.

Getting to go through school in a Christ-centered environment is a game-changer. When a school prioritizes Jesus and lifting up his name with everything they do, it teaches us to live our lives for Him in everything we do. That’s something I still take with me every day.
