Beyond academics, an education consists of a variety of experiences and values that your child will encounter in 13 years of schooling. In a given day, a child will spend as many hours around their teachers and peers as they do around their parents. Church attendance constitutes approximately 4 hours a week for most children. By contrast, they spend close to 40 hours a week at school. Maryville Christian School is committed to providing not only sound academics, but a deep dedication to developing Christian character in the lives of students that will last for an eternity. Why MCS? The stakes are too high for our most prized possession, our children.
The staff and faculty of MCS understand the eternal impact of partnering with Christian parents in this important endeavor of preparing students for life, college, missions, discipleship, and employment. This is a journey we all value and are thankful to be a part of.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
