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.
