MCS is an independent, co-educational Christian school located in Topham Road, Pietermaritzburg, catering for learners from Grade 4 through to Grade 12.
We are affliated to the Association of Christian Schools International. Our matrics write the IEB Exams. MCS was founded in 1987 as a non-denominational, co-educational, multi-racial, Christian primary school. The high school opened in 2001 and our first matriculants wrote in 2005.We are a small, connected school, with a strong pastoral emphasis alongside the academics and sporting pillars that provide the foundations that young people need to mature spiritually, mentally and physically. Class sizes are limited to 26, and with no more than two classes per grade, every child is known.
The opportunities for young people to develop in various, unique directions are supported in every dimension, and learners are intrinsically involved in leadership at every appropriate opportunity, from leading worship, the SRC, Prefectship, to sports teams, under the mentorship and guidance of a dedicated Christian staff. Currently, we are situated on the premises of Maritzburg Christian Church, but we have very real plans to expand onto our own premises, and to build on the promises that God has given us.
