Maryville Christian School is committed to supporting parents who desire to provide a Christian education for their children. In addition to our on-campus program, MCS offers a Home School Umbrella (HSU) for grades K-8 and an Independent Study Program (ISP) for grades 9-12. The HSU is open to families with at least one Christian parent seeking to educate their children from a Christian perspective.  For the ISP, we require prior year enrollment in our K-8 Umbrella Program or prior year enrollment at the MCS campus for guaranteed entry.   

For all new registrants and rising 9th and 12th grade students, the earlier you submit your completed paperwork and payment, the more flexible we can be with our meeting time.   

If you have any questions, please email
