About the School
Mt. Pleasant Christian School is a Preschool (3 years) to 8th grade private Christian school located in Chesapeake, VA in the Hampton Roads area.
Our goal is to create an environment which will nurture the students' spiritual, academic, and social growth. This includes daily worship experiences and instruction in Bible. Our curriculum uses standard textbooks taught in the light of Biblical truth. Our teachers are academically qualified and, even more importantly, dedicated to Christian service.
Mt. Pleasant Christian School admits qualified students of any age, race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to the students at the school. MPCS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of school policies or programs.
Our pre-school and before and after school programs are religiously exempt from licensure because of its association with Mt. Pleasant Mennonite Church.
