About MPCS

Who We Are...

Founded in 1976, MPCS is a fully accredited (SACS) independent college preparatory school for pre-K through grade 12, offering weekly chapel, daily Bible classes, a gifted / honors program, advanced placement classes, joint enrollment with area colleges, internship programs, computer, and foreign language programs.

Mount Paran is a community full of happy and excited students who are in the process of becoming well-educated, responsible, Christian young people. MPCS helps mold well-rounded students by fostering the kind of environment that develops a passion to serve and learn. Our students truly look forward to school each day.

Uniting Home, School, and Church

The passion to unite home, school and church stems directly from God's Word. Faculty members are selected for their exemplary character, their professional expertise, and their willingness to "go the extra mile" to serve children and families. Our teachers care about each child and are eager to see them succeed. They consistently take the time to encourage each student's emotional well-being by nurturing self-esteem, aiding in setting personal goals, and helping develop natural talents.

By incorporating a college preparatory curriculum, the academic rigor of Mount Paran Christian School is intended to develop enthusiastic and confident life-long learners who strive to achieve their personal best in everything they do. Our students display a genuine thirst for knowledge that cultivates success at the college level.

In a private, independent school setting, many students blossom because they have the opportunity to become involved in so many facets of their school life, allowing them to test their abilities and discover their true potential. This is certainly true at MPCS, whether it is in the classroom, on stage, in weekly chapel, or on the athletic field.

Mount Paran Christian School will become the exemplary Christian school in the Atlanta area as defined by the development of Christ-centered servant-leaders and quality academic preparation.

We also encourage our parents to be active in their child's learning experience. Communication between the home and school is established through regular correspondence from teachers. Parents are welcome to call teachers or set up conferences. The success of each student is enhanced when teachers, parents, and students work together to achieve a common goal - the development of an individual for the purpose of bringing glory to God and to serving the community.

At MPCS, we partner with our school families to instill a sense of community that spans generations. For example, our annual Grandparents' Day is designed to celebrate the special role of grandparents in the lives of our young people. We recognize that the extended family plays an integral part in the student's daily life and applaud their support at school events, such as chapel, field trips, games, and musical and drama productions.

Covenant Community

As a covenant Christian school, Mount Paran expects each of its participating families to share a commitment to the Christian faith and involvement in the ministry of a local church, regardless of denominational affiliation. Additionally, written statements of faith and pastoral references are required for potential acceptance consideration. The Mount Paran Christian School community is unapologetic about its commitment to a Christ-centered education and seeks to integrate that faith in all aspects of school life.
