We started Mount Pisgah in 6th grade and are in 8th grade now. Our wine is very challenged and happy at MPC. The teachers go over and beyond for the children. They truly pour into each child. It is also been wonderful watching his faith grow and flourish. The faculty and other families are a true blessing to our family!

Our son will graduate Pisgah in May after attending for 13 years since Kindergarten. Our family experience has been incredibly rewarding through community fellowship, strong academics, successful thriving and growing athletic programs, diversity in the arts and mission work, as well as rewarding small groups that have all prepared him to reach his goals of attending the first school of his choice and play D1 football t Cornell University where he will study business at the #3 ranked business school in the nation. Pisgah has trained him not just as a student and athlete, but as a young man who is eager to set and reach goals, contribute to society, and make a positive impact wherever he lands. Any family looking for a small school experience with depth in so many areas simply must visit Mount Pisgah and learn about what makes it such a solid choice for your child's education. It may not be the prettiest campus in North Fulton (we''re still building and growing, as this is the 10th graduating class in the school's history), but we know from experience that pretty on the outside doesn't always equal pretty on the inside. Pisgah is a must to consider for your student. Come experience Pisgah!

Our daughter has loved her experience at Mount Pisgah. She was welcomed with open arms when she arrived. The other students and teachers seemed to go out of their way to help her get started, make new friends and become involved in the activities that interested her. Moving to a new school is never easy, but they really seemed to care about her getting off to a great start. When your kid looks forward to going to school everyday, that's really saying something! I have been impressed by the chapel services, the opportunities for our daughter to learn more about her faith and ask questions in a safe environment. The teachers have made an effort to make classes interesting and to stay after to help students who need extra help. I have been very impressed and glad we made this choice.

In short, we are thrilled to be a part of Mount Pisgah! We searched for two years to find the right fit for our middle school daughter - one that could challenge her academically and yet nurture her spirit and creativity. Pisgah is that place. After her shadow day, the only question she had for Mr. Arnette was, "Can I start tomorrow?" As we stacked up Pisgah against the other great schools, we found that Pisgah was adding strength to their academic schedule (Latin as a foreign language in Middle School; Alegbra IA for 7th grade) and offering Honor Scholarships to attract even more high potential students. Added to the amazingly warm, friendly, and loving environment that we felt the minute we stepped in to the Open Houses or tours, these just made Mount Pisgah Christian School "home" for our whole family. The teachers and staff are fantastic and love these kids with all their hearts. When the Principal can tell you what went on in your kid's day - not because she was in trouble, but because he is interested - you know that they are paying attention. The Middle School team works together to help each of the kids grow and mature and strengthen every day. Go Patriots!
