MILPITAS, CALIFORNIA – Families now have more choices for their children’s K-12 education.

This week Milpitas Christian School will celebrate students, parents, teachers, and staff during National School Choice Week (January 20-26, 2019).

“Forty-five years ago, parents in the Milpitas, San Jose and Fremont communities wanted a Christ-centered alternative to public schools,” explained Robert Murray, Head of School for Milpitas Christian School. “Today our parents and alumni continue to tell us that our emphasis on educating the whole child is exactly right. Aristotle put it this way: ‘Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.’ To nurture and challenge today’s children to become the leaders of tomorrow, they’ll need full spectrum training and development: intellectually, physically, socially, spiritually, and emotionally.”

School Choice
During National School Choice Week (January 20-26, 2019), millions of Americans will discover school choice options for their own families. For Milpitas Christian School, this week highlights our award-winning Preschool, Elementary School, Middle School and High School academic programs. In 2018, Milpitas Christian was voted:
  • Best Preschool
  • Best Private School
  • Best Tutoring/Educational Center
  • Best Principal/Director for Private School (Leta Leggitt)
  • Most Community Minded Small Company
MCS was also awarded honors for Day Care, Teacher (Lindon Richards), Principal/Director for Private School (Robyn Ritsema) and Things That Happened in Milpitas in 2018 (“Race for Education”).
 
“Every child deserves a great education,” stated Jim Hsia, Marketing for Milpitas Christian School. “Our goal is to activate each child's natural curiosity to explore and to learn. Every teacher and staff person is handpicked for their unwavering commitment to develop excellence in our next generation of leaders.”
