The Milpitas Christian School (MCS) philosophy and practice is to develop English proficiency through immersion. Milpitas Christian School does not provide an English as a Second Language (ESL) program. In order to maintain the highest quality of academic, social and spiritual education for all Milpitas Christian School students, international students must speak, read, and write English well enough to handle their educational course work without special assistance.

In addition to the admissions requirements for United States citizens, the following requirements also apply for nonimmigrant visa applicants:
  1. Completed a minimum of two years of academic instruction in English conversation, reading, and writing in a formal school setting
  2. Application for third through eighth grades only
  3. Possess age-appropriate conversational English skills
  4. Priority acceptance is given to qualified applicants who are biological relatives of current or alumni families of MCS
