Innovative learning takes many shapes and forms in the classroom. In preschool, to innovate may involve building towers with oversized blocks or using the iPad Osmo® to create tangrams. In middle school, advanced science labs may explore chemical reactions to study bio-engineering hypotheses. High school AP Biology takes swab samples to study and compare effective COVID-sanitization standards. Technical Theatre classes build, fabricate, and design for real-world entertainment productions. Lower school STEAM days involve students in the engineering design process, helping them to work through new hands-on challenges each semester. They also engage in earth science field trips, cultivate the lower school garden, and learn laws of physics through aviation-science at Starbase. Watch the video below to learn how.

MPCS fifth-graders experienced a week-long science field trip at LockheedMartin aeronautics' Starbase (through the U.S. Department of Defense), which led to building their own rockets.


Whether it is learning design and fabrication skills in a high school costuming class or introducing the mind-stretching practice of cursive handwriting to second-grade students, innovation permeates the way we teach and learn at Mount Paran Christian School. 

MPCS Arts technical theatre classes build sets, create lighting effects, program sound, sew costumes, and work behind the scenes to support performing arts productions.


MPCS engages in innovation through the exploration, creation, and
implementation of solutions to real-world problems.
