We truly appreciate your generosity! Every gift matters, no matter the amount, and enables the MCS faculty and staff to JOYFULLY help students reach their greatest God-given potential, develop character and leadership, form lifelong friendships, and discover the TRUE JOY of living the Christian life.
What is the MCS Annual Fund and why is it important?
Tuition covers 95% of an MCS student’s education. As we seek to keep MCS affordable for as many Orange County Christian families as possible, Annual Fund donations fill in the gap! Any amount counts towards participation, which makes a big impression on Foundations that are considering their support of MCS.
