With the completion and celebration of our Bright Future Phase 1, we want to continue to update our community. We’re now poised to transform our classroom instructional spaces with natural light, enhanced security and flexible furniture that will support our focus on individualized learning, community-building, FAITH formation and a culture of INNOVATION. Together, with God’s provision, we can make this dream a reality! If you have questions, please contact Troy Moore, Barbara O’Brian, or Julie Hellriegel.

BRIGHT FUTURE PHASE 2 PLANS INCLUDE

Bright Future Phase 1 Vision

 


TIMELINE: April, 2018

Bright Future Comprehensive Campaign Vision

Our vision is to provide students with the finest faith-based educational experience in the country, developing their spiritual and academic strengths in preparation for high school, college, and their professional callings.

MCS has been been growing and changing significantly on the “inside,” becoming a leading-edge provider of Christian education. Now, we stand poised to transform on the “outside,” giving students a state-of-the-art learning environment that will ignite their hearts and inspire their imagination. As we transform our current campus into a thoroughly modern 21st Century learning environment for children, we are creating spaces where our remarkable staff carry out the MCS mission in new and innovative ways, where students flourish and discover their God-given talents and passions, and where families find connection and belonging with other Christian parents.

Perhaps most significant of all, the MCS vision is to build upon our 30-year legacy as a leader in Christian education and establish a reputation that can serve as an exemplar for other schools, a model resource and training ground for best practices in Christian education.

To carry out this God-sized vision, MCS has launched a comprehensive campaign that will dramatically modernize the entire campus to reflect our Core Values and unwavering commitment to excellence, as well as build a strong foundation of program support to ensure the future viability of MCS.

YOU’RE JOYFULLY INVITED IN TO WHAT GOD IS DOING!
