I am a graduate of Merritt Island Christian School as well as a mother of 2 that attend Merritt Island Christian School. MICS is a College Preparatory School that equips all of its students for a successful life after high school. Our students are above the state, nation, and county in our PSAT, SAT, and ACT scores. You can find that information on the school's website...www.mics cougars.com. Similarly, we have a 100% graduation rate and a 100% acceptance rate to college/university. Our statistics speak for themselves. We provide 6 different diploma track offerings including Honors, STEM, and Fine Arts. Our educators all have a background knowledge base in their subject areas as well as being accredited by ACSI, SBACS, and AdvancED. We offer 16 different sports teams. The facilities are extremely well-maintained by the facilities and maintenance crew who go above and beyond to provide a safe, clean learning environment for our students. We average a minimum of $50,000 in scholarships per student upon graduation based on their individual accolades. We have a full-time, a former sheriff deputy leading our security team and take students and family's safety very seriously. If you would like to know more, I am the Director of Student Affairs and College Guidance here at Merritt Island Christian School and would love to speak to anyone interested in becoming part of our MICS family.

As a mother of 2 at MICS, I can confidently say there is nowhere else I would want my boys to be. Top-notch for academics, safety, sports, fine arts, STEM, and Biblical worldview. Having a clinical psychologist on-staff has been a valuable resource as the school truly aims to keep my kids safe and excelling in always: academically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually!

I currently have two children attending Merritt Island Christian and couldn't be happen with this school. We chose MICS because we wanted our children to learn about God along with academics. MICS blends both in a loving environment with rigorous classes.
