What is the MCS Annual Fund and why is it important?
Every year, MCS is blessed by an amazing partnership with parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends who support the mission of “building a firm foundation through Christ-centered education” through Annual Fund giving.
While tuition covers 95% of educational costs, the Annual Fund enables MCS to “Go Above and Beyond” with vital program improvements. Annual Fund contributions are a critical part of MCS’s operating budget, ensuring that students receive the highest caliber of academic and spiritual preparation without burdening families with excessive tuition increases.
