School Notes

  • To prepare children to be the next generation of leaders, Milpitas Christian School educates the whole child - spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally. Students at MCS are inspired to think creatively and critically. They are challenged to acquire Christ-like character, and they are often reminded that God has created each student wonderfully with the ultimate goal of transforming their world for Jesus Christ. Our academic program provides rigor and challenge as teachers personalize the educational experience for each child. The ingredients to achieve our mission at MCS include low student-to-teacher class ratios, a well-rounded Christ-centered, college preparatory curriculum enriched with  music, band, physical education, STEAM,  and athletic opportunities, and teachers who love and inspire their students to go beyond their potential.
