Mount Pleasant Christian School (MPCS) is a K3 through 5th grade private school whose mission is to assist parents in educating their children with academic excellence and godliness. Moreover, MPCS seeks to provide a spiritually dynamic interdependent learning community that “trains up [students] in the way that [they] should go” and that prepares students to excel in diverse academically rigorous environments.
Curriculum and Instruction
A Beka Book, the core curriculum, emphasizes a Biblical worldview and integrates Scripture throughout all core subjects: reading, language, arithmetic, social studies, history, and science. The A Beka Book is taught across all grade levels.
The K3 Program contains additional curricular elements that embrace the God given curiosity and developmental needs of the young child.
K4 through 5th grade core subjects include Bible, reading, language, spelling, poetry, literature, history, geography, science, and arithmetic. Complementary learning opportunities include technology, music, art, physical education, and library. Band and private instrumental lessons are also available through a private company.
At the upper elementary level, preadolescents are also trained to honor themselves and the Word of God and to question their own worldview and personal faith in Jesus Christ. They are also required to participate in a community service project.
Chapel service occurs weekly with students, faculty, staff, and invited guests.
