In order for our students to thrive in a multicultural world, they must learn, understand, and come to appreciate the impact of culture itself. As a school, we are dedicated to building a more multicultural curriculum that prepares our students for global citizenship and helps them to understand the significant historical experiences and basic cultural patterns of different ethnic groups. Through a biblical lens, our curriculum looks to address contemporary issues and the social problems confronting them, while exploring the experience and personal lives of different individuals and/or groups these issues and problems affect.

Mount Paran Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, birth gender, protected disability, national or ethnic origin, genetic disease or disorder, or protected age in the administration of its admission, academic, athletic, financial aid, and employment policies.

“MPCS makes its students a priority – every student, no matter his or her academic, athletic, or artistic aspirations is important. I can promise you that you’ll never be a nameless face while on the MPCS campus – a campus that is chock-full of smiling faces and teachers who genuinely care and will go out of their way to help you inside and outside of the classroom.”
