Knights in Training




Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten & Kindergarten Program

Train up a child in the way he should go:

and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6
Welcome Parents,
Thank you for your interest in Monroe Christian School. In our early education program, your child will be challenged to grow in the following areas:
a Spiritually: We believe that each and every child is God’s precious child.  Your child will be treated with love and respect.  They will understand that God loves them and has a special plan for their life. 
a Emotionally: Your child will have the opportunity to play and learn with other children.  They will make friends with classmates and see themselves as capable and responsible.
a Physically: Your child will grow confident in their ability to run, skip, draw, write, build, and climb. We will provide activities that help develop both fine and gross motor skills.
a Socially: Your child will see that the world is a big and exciting place full of different people and places and challenges. They will be given tools to help them communicate appropriately with other children, as well as adults. They will also learn how to follow directions, work in a group, cooperate and share.
a Intellectually: Your child will be given developmentally-appropriate activities.  They will learn new songs, hear wonderful stories, and memorize poems.  They will draw, paint, and express themselves creatively.  Your child will be given a solid foundation for their academic future.
We look forward to meeting you and your child.  We are excited about partnering with you and your family.

In Him,

The Staff at MCS

Introduction to MCS

Monroe Christian School was established in 1956 for the purpose of providing a school which would teach a way of life compatible with that held in the home. The establishment of the Christian school rejects the secular philosophy that man is the center of the universe, and acknowledges God as the Creator of all things. It establishes the Word of God as the plumb line for all learning. 

Monroe Christian School is devoted to teaching that our lives, as Christians, are lived within the Kingdom of Jesus Christ here on earth. This "world and life view" does not separate us from the present world, but helps us to see it in the light of God's word as revealed to us by His Holy Spirit.


Our Mission Statement




Monroe Christian School is a Christ-centered community

equipping God’s children for service in His Kingdom.

Our Vision Statement


We at Monroe Christian School partner with Christian homes and churches to nurture and equip God’s children. We recognize that Jesus Christ is sovereign over all creation and has created each child with unique abilities, gifts, and talents. Our purpose is to develop and encourage growth in every area of their lives; spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically, according to God’s Word and relying on the Holy Spirit. Through this process, children will develop a Christian perspective of life that will enable them critically weigh the issues of the day and lead them into faithful stewardship of God’s world and into a life of joyful service.

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing, and perfect will.” Romans 12:2 (NIV)
