Tel: (360)424-9157
Grades: PK-12 | 322 students
Mt. Vernon Christian School is a not for profit non-denomintional Christian School based on the infallible word of God dedicated to preparing students for service to God and their community.
We have dedicated our purpose to training individuals the way God trained His own Son.
As a school of excellence, we will produce students of influence that will impact their generation and the world for the cause of Christ.
The philosophical basis for our school is the Biblical, God-centered view of man and truth.
Ultimate truth is God's truth as revealed by His Word.
Man, apart from God, is devoid of ultimate truth.
Man can find truth through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Therefore, at Mt. Vernon Christian School, we seek to bring our students into Christian fellowship with God through our integrated Christian education.
Biblical principles are taught in every academic subject.
Properly taught, each subject should only reveal to the students more about their Creator and His purpose in each life.
