Milpitas Christian School (MCS) offers excellent academics with a balanced approach to learning. We prepare students for a lifetime of learning, service to their communities, and future success.

Our information-based, high technology world needs critical thinkers with problem-solving skills. MCS offers a learning environment that encourages exploration and stimulates creativity. Science discovery and exploration begins in preschool and advances to earth science and life science in middle school. Technology is first integrated into Grade 1 curriculum. Engineering (robotics, coding) builds upon the foundation in the earliest grade. Our Singapore math program spans Grades 1-5; dual advanced math tracks are available in Grades 6-8.

As an independent, non-denominational Christ-centered school, we collaborate with parents and churches to provide a well-rounded education with a biblical worldview. Although not all of our families have already placed their faith in Jesus Christ, students with open hearts and spirits will find a safe environment to ask tough questions and pursue their spiritual quest.
Members of the community have consistently honored Milpitas Christian School teachers, principals, programs and events with high praises and awards.

Outstanding Academics

Our smaller classes (and low teacher-student ratio) means faster, more focused learning with less noise and fewer distractions. Each student has more individual time with the teachers (athletic coaches, music instructors and personal tutors). NCTE reported, "In smaller classes students tend to be as much as one to two months ahead in content knowledge, and they score higher on standardized assessments."

Parent Teacher Fellowship

It’s our passion to be in close communication with the MCS parents and families. Parents and teachers meet regularly to exchange ideas and plan activities like the Race for Education, Science Fairs, and the Parent Teacher Fellowship events. All parents are considered members of the PTF and are encouraged to use their gifts and skills to help build strong bonds between one another, our teachers, and our administration.

Dedicated Teachers

Gifted with a passion and talent to lead students to a high level of learning, our teachers help students to develop a deep love for learning. Each teacher and staff person was chosen for his/her heart to nurture and develop the next generation of leaders. With fewer students per teacher, children have more opportunities to ask questions and have more meaningful interactions.

Educating the Whole Child

Children, created in the image of God, deserve a complete education for their mind (mental), heart (emotional), soul (spiritual) and body (physical). In the early grades, the emphasis is on a developmental approach to learning. We assist students to become good citizens. Our music, drama, art and physical skill developments help children appreciate beauty in God's creation. By learning to express their creative impulses in pleasing ways, students develop healthy habits and a sense of Christian fellowship and sportsmanship.
