Monroe Christian School (MCS) is a state-approved, fully-accredited, private Christian school located in Monroe, Washington, serving students from preschool through ninth grade. Monroe Christian’s accreditation under Christian Schools International is evidence of meeting rigorous standards for quality instruction, including state certification of teachers and completion of a Bachelor’s Degree, at a minimum. Since 1956, MCS has earned a reputation for academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment. The school has attracted students and families from many different denominations; our student body reflects families from thirty different area churches.
Monroe Christian School was founded in 1956 by a group of Christian men and women of the Christian Reformed Church desiring to be obedient to the command of God to “train up children in the Lord.” The school started its first classes in a back room of the Christian Reformed Church in Monroe, directly across the street from the current campus. The school quickly outgrew those facilities, so four acres of land were purchased and a four-classroom building was constructed at our present location on Main Street in Monroe. Growth of the student body continued through the 1960′s into the 1970′s, so the school building was once again expanded, this time to eight classrooms.
In the 1980′s the school added kindergarten to its well-established first through eighth grade program. The early childhood education program (preschool) was added in 1989. In 1992, the school purchased an adjoining piece of property to accommodate even more growth. After more than 50 years, Monroe Christian School is still maintained by Christian men and women from many denominations who desire to give children the opportunity to receive a Christ-centered education, based upon the infallible and inspired Word of God – the Bible.
Monroe Christian School is a Christ-Centered Community equipping God’s children for service in His kingdom.
Triune God We believe in one God who exists eternally as three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
God the Father We believe that God created and continues to uphold the world by His Word. We also believe that He is the exalted Lord of the universe and the Creator of all things. He gives life to all things and actively preserves His handiwork. In Christian education, the child comes to learn about the Creator God through His creation.
Jesus Christ We believe through Jesus Christ, the power of sin has been broken and we are reconciled to God through Him. Jesus calls us to the building of a Christian church, culture, and way of life. Therefore, it is the task of the Christian school to help our children build a biblical foundation for living.
Holy Spirit We believe the Holy Spirit renews our hearts to love God and our neighbors. He directs our understanding to know God, ourselves, and our world. It is through yielding to His counsel that we develop the Christian walk.
The Bible We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. God reveals Himself in the Scriptures, the Old and New Testaments. The Bible is the basis for all of our relationships, thoughts, and activities; therefore, the Scriptures are also our guide in the education of our children.
Man We believe man is created in the image of God to enjoy fellowship with his Creator. Man reflects, in his person and work, the excellence of his Maker.
