Why MCS? - Mansfield Christian School, Mansfield, Ohio

Home, Church, and School: We’re Better Together

As parents, you do everything in your power to raise your child to know Jesus and to grow in Him. But there are so many factors that can lead your child away from the path you hope they’ll walk.

When all of your child’s influences - school, church, and home - are working toward the same goals, you provide them with the tools, friends, and network of support to guide them in the ways they should go.
