HONORING THE DIVERSE BODY OF CHRIST
As a Christian institution with a Christ-centered mission, Mount Paran Christian School believes it is our biblical obligation to lead our students in modeling all that Jesus has commanded in Mark 12:30-31.
WHAT IS CommUNITY?
MPCS is committed to becoming an environment diverse and inclusive in a way that reflects God’s Kingdom.

MPCS DIVERSITY INITIATIVES
CAMPAIGN FOR CommUNITY
Beginning in 2020, lamp post banners adorned the MPCS campus. Each new banner was designed by an MPCS high school visual art student. The original artwork embodies the student's interpretation of specific Bible verses, chosen from God's Word about our commUNITY. To keep the MPCS family focused on what truly matters, the school adopted a theme of “Love One Another.” The banners are visual reminders on campus of what God has to say about loving all people. Each verse is inclusive of the diverse body of Christ and God's love for every one of us. His instruction is clear, and our call is to obey His commands in our treatment of His children. Special thanks to the MPCS high school visual artists who dedicated time to complete the CommUNITY series banner works of art.

COMMUNITY VIDEO SERIES
In order for our students to thrive in a multicultural world, they must learn, understand, and come to appreciate the impact of culture itself. As a school, we are dedicated to building a more multicultural curriculum that prepares our students for global citizenship and helps them to understand the significant historical experiences and basic cultural patterns of different ethnic groups. Through a biblical lens, our curriculum looks to address contemporary issues and the social problems confronting them, while exploring the experience and personal lives of different individuals and/or groups these issues and problems affect.
