Left another christian school in the area and just enrolled my three children at MVCS! As soon as we stepped foot on their beautiful campus we felt like we belonged there. Their academics are extremely strong, with test scores to prove it. One of the many things that I was impressed with is how well their students do once in high school. Last year, ALL of there graduating 8th graders who were accepted to the catholic school in the area were placed in honors and 1/3 of those students were placed in high honors! The leadership is healthy and a breath of fresh air! If you are thinking about where to enroll your students, be sure to check out MVCS! I can't begin to explain the excitement and momentum on the campus!

My daughter came over to Mission Viejo Christian in Oct 2011 - from another private school - what a huge difference in every way. Unfortunately academically she was behind, but because of the great teachers at MVCS she is getting caught up. The staff, teachers and fellow students are all amazing, this school is growing because of the greatness that is happening. If you looking for a wonderful Christ centered school in South OC look no further.

This is a great Christian school! My daughter has attended for several years and has excelled academically and spiritually. I am so thrilled to know she is so well prepared for high school. The children are continuously instructed in Christian values, which helps them defend their faith in worldly situations. The students are awesome and the staff is wonderful! The school provides many extra-curricular courses, such as Spanish, music including dance & backstage productions, technology, art, an awesome Jr. high science program, bible classes and weekly chapel. They even have a homeschool program (PSP), in which homeschoolers can paticpate in extra curricular classes, field trips and other school activities. Their sports program is top notch and teaches Christian character. The new principal this year and the parent - teacher association has brought new enthusiasm and greater communication to the school. I have a younger student in the school and I can t wait to see what the next years bring!

Amazing education, academics and staff. A kind and warm place. The teachers and staff really know your children and truly care about them. MVCS provides a strong foundation for your children to take with them throughout life. My children are so happy here and just flourish.

This school is exceptional on so many levels. The education is excellent and far exceeds all public and private schools in the area. The school is a loving environment that teaches character, honor and intergrity. The teachers are well educated and kind and loving. Our children have gone to MVCS for years and we are truly blessed by this school. There are many fun school activities and events. Perfect balance between learning and having fun too. There is a sense of belonging and a true family envirornment. The kids have healthy competition such as for speech meets, spelling bees, math olympics etc.... but also support each other when someone shines in a particular area. If you have a bright child they give you the opportunities and classes in junior high to excel. And if your child needs extra help they have resources teachers to assist them. Your child truly has a sense of belonging and every staff member and teacher will know them. It is a Christian school so Jesus and Christian values are at the core of everything. Can not describe how much this school means to us.

I absolutely love this school! I am in 8th grade this year and I am so sad to leave. I am so blessed to go to this school and learn so much about God. They do their best to keep us safe and bring us up in the ways of God. All the teachers are great and our principal is amazing. There are lots of extracurricular activities including PE, music, art, computers, and a health class in Jr. High. They also offer Spanish classes. I have enjoyed going to this school and I am sure you will too!

I couldn't agree with the below review more! Inconsistency is a word that is prevalant at this school. We were so excited to go there and had heard great things, but were quite disappointed in the end. Caring and compassionate christian teachers but they were sometimes lacking. Lack of supervision, accountability and oversight is a problem resulting in a big crisis there this year. I'm sure things will improve now, but we won't be there to find out.
