- The Madison Christian School Educational Philosophy - The entire process of education is a means used by the Holy Spirit to bring the student to God, then into fellowship with God, and help the student become strong or mighty in the spirit, assist the student in developing the mind of Christ, train the student in Christ-likeness, teach the student to respond like God, acquire skills needed to function in society and help the student demonstrate Christ-like character qualities in order that he/she can fulfill God`s total purpose for his/her life personally and vocationally. Madison Christian School, along with local evangelical churches, partner with parents to fulfill God`s command to scripturally train their children to love God and place Him first in their lives. (Deuteronomy 6:7-8, Proverbs 22:6)
- Four dynamics from John 17:13 form a model for Christian Education. But now I (the Teacher) come to you (the Learner), and these things (the Content) I speak (the Processes) in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.

Madison Christian School has been an awesome environment for my 2 children! The teachers are caring and qualified. The school offers a safe environment where they integrate the Bible into every subject. There are many program offerings for my children in academics, athletics, and fine arts. The school has a family feel to it. Everyone is kind and respectful. I can't say enough good things about this school! My kids will be going to MCS all the way through graduation because they have everything we want and need in a great school!

Our daughters have attended Madison Christian since 2001, beginning with Kindergarten and Pre-school. It has been our experience that MCS has been consistently forward-thinking in their educational philosophy while still maintaining a family feel. The teachers/staff are relationship driven with their students, understanding the immense importance of the foundation of their Christian education. MCS teachers go the extra mile in helping students individually achieve their very best within a safe environment for students to academically excel. There is a Christian community at MCS that, as parents, we believe is essential to our daughters' spiritual growth and development. For these reasons, we felt MCS was the perfect fit for our daughters' to receive their K-12 education and ultimately graduate successfully to post-secondary institutions.
