Overview

Homeschool Partnership Program

“Thank you to you and all of MCS's leadership, who made the decision to open MCS to homeschoolers. The girls are absolutely delighted with their class. We have been able to do all classes well at home and co-op, with the exception of Math. Our family (really) needed your math classes. We are forever grateful to your school."   -  Alexandra Fisher | 2016-2017 | MCS Homeschool Mother
