STEAM-Training Teachers

10/20/2017

While we expect our children to learn curriculum, it is equally important that our staff be continual learners themselves.

High School Fishing

10/11/2017

Last year, MPC athletics embarked on the inaugural season of the Mount Paran Christian fishing team.

The MPC Way

09/13/2017

In the winter of 2017, a committee of head coaches began the process of developing a clear and compelling vision for the Mount Paran Christian athletic program.

What does a championship culture look like? Championship teams and programs have a winning way of doing things. Collectively, we want our student-athletes, teams, coaches, parents, fans, and community...
