A Message from the Principal:

Hello MCS Parents,

It's hard to believe that we're looking ahead to the next school year and re-enrollment has begun! We appreciate all our MCS families and are so grateful to partner with you in developing your children as strong Christian leaders.

In the evening of Monday, January 31, we held a Parent Meeting for all currently enrolled MCS families. We communicated important updates regarding tuition, fees, and facilities. We also updated families on the continuing vision and mission of the school, upcoming events and activities, and other exciting plans for the 2022-23 school year. If you missed the Parent Meeting, we will be emailing parents a link to the recording.

We were blessed to celebrate what God is doing and update you before re-enrollment!

Blessings,

Kim Miller, MS

Athletics

You are invited to join the MCS Community for our upcoming Senior Nights and Eagles for a Cause events.

Eagles for a Cause was begun a few years ago to support an organization or a cause through our athletic programs, allowing our student-athletes to have a positive impact on our community. Athletic teams choose a cause to be highlighted and supported at one of the contests during their respective seasons. All proceeds (including game admission and t-shirt sales) from the event are donated to the selected organization.
