Who We Are...

Mount Paran Christian School provides students with a journey. . .a journey to maximize and then exceed their potential in a safe environment; encouraging students to take risks - sometimes falling short, always learning - developing their own ideas and exploring diverse perspectives while embracing their Christianity.

Founded in 1976, MPCS is a fully accredited (SAIS/AdvancED) independent college preparatory school for pre-K through grade 12. Students thrive through the process of becoming well-educated, responsible, Christian young people. MPCS helps mold well-rounded students by fostering the kind of environment that develops a passion to serve and learn.

A Missional community

The passion to unite home, school, and church stems directly from God's Word. Our teachers care about 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 display a genuine thirst for knowledge that cultivates success at the college level.

In an independent Christian school setting, students blossom because they have the opportunity to become involved in so many facets of their school life, allowing them to test their abilities and discover their true potential. This is certainly true at MPCS, whether it is in the classroom, on stage, in weekly chapel, or on the field of play.

We encourage our parents to be active in their child's learning experience. Communication between the home and school is established through regular correspondence from teachers. The success of each student is enhanced when teachers, parents, and students work together to achieve a common goal: the development of an individual for the purpose of bringing glory to God and serving the community.

As a covenantal Christian school, MPCS expects each of its participating families to share a commitment to the Christian faith and involvement in the ministry of a local church, regardless of denominational affiliation. Additionally, written statements of faith and pastoral references are required for potential acceptance consideration. The Mount Paran Christian School community is unapologetic about its 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.

An MPCS graduate


I am dependent on God. I seek out other believers who share my passion to know God more fully and to follow Jesus Christ in my life. I am inspired by God's design for the world, for my life, and for the way He has uniquely designed each of us to be in relationship with Him. I feel joy with every new revelation, every epiphany, every step into deeper understanding.
