Mobile Christian is a special place. Being an alumnus, there was no question of where my children would go to school. I truly feel MCS provided my children with every opportunity available from academics and fine arts to sports. They prepared my children for college, but more importantly for life. The relationships that I and my children have with teachers, staff, and fellow students are priceless and some will last a lifetime. This school cares about my children's performance in the classroom, performance on the field, and performance out in the world.

We are thrilled with Mobile Christian School and all that it offers. Our son loves going to school there. He is learning new things everyday. The curriculum is spot on! He has the opportunity to participate in a vast number of extracurricular activities and programs. The staff are genuinely concerned for their students and put forth more effort than I''ve ever witnessed. I love hearing my son pray every day. I also love the fact that the students say the pledge of allegiance every day. We are about to enroll our oldest daughter into their k3 program. She is very excited about attending Mobile Christian School with her brother. This school is fantastic!

I taught in public schools for years before coming to Mobile Christian. Deciding to teach at MCS was the best life choice I have ever made. While the pay is not as much as it would be in public schools, the work conditions more than make up for that. We have caring administrators who share the mission of "educating for eternity." They listen to us and support us. They are always looking for ways to better our school. The staff that I work with are some of the most innovative people I've ever been around. They think outside of the box and encourage the students to do the same. Many of us can be found on campus from 7:00am-9:00pm because we support the activities on our campus. Because we are a K-12 school, there is always an event taking place. MCS is not for everyone, but it is for the person looking for a place to belong, be loved, and be educated. I LOVE MCS!

Moving my two girls from public school to Mobile Christian was one of the best decisions I ever made. They were immediately challenged and had concerned teachers who helped them before and after school. Both girls played high school sports and participated in several clubs. They both graduated with honors and received scholarships to 4-year colleges. One now has her doctorate and the other has two Master's Degrees. Mobile Christian definitely prepared them for college and for life. I would highly recommend it to anyone in the Mobile area.
