Mt. Pleasant Christian School

Mt. Pleasant Christian School, in partnership with parents, is dedicated to the teaching of God-given truth, the nurturing of faith, and the development of individual learning potential.
We believe that children learn through work and play, through careful guidance and instruction, and through interaction with others.
This means that, in addition to classroom instruction, outdoor play and guidance in healthy relationships with classmates are a part of the educational process.
Our goal is to create an environment which will nurture the students' spiritual, academic, and social growth. This includes daily worship experiences and instruction in Bible. Our curriculum uses standard textbooks taught in the light of Biblical truth.
Our teachers are academically qualified and, even more importantly, dedicated to Christian service.
