Welcome to MCCS
Thank you for visiting the Mount Calvary Christian School website. Take time to explore our school and learn about our distinctives.
MCCS is a dynamic Christian school whose purpose is to “assist parents with their responsibility to educate their child.” From preschool through twelfth grade, the MCCS experience is full of academic, artistic, and athletic opportunities — all built upon the foundation of biblical truth.
MCCS wants to create Christian young people who own a solid, biblical worldview. We want to teach students to integrate their faith and have a healthy approach to academic excellence. This means that the arts, sports, and other extracurricular activities are a central part of the learning process.
In designing a balanced approach to healthy worldview development, it is our desire that students advance in spiritual formation, character development, Bible knowledge, the sciences, the humanities, the classical world, theology, and apologetics. It is our desire to come alongside parents and share in a family vision to train children in godliness and in academic excellence.
The Board of Trustees is pleased to announce Mr. Jared Griest as the next Superintendent of Mount Calvary Christian School, effective June 14, 2021.
Over the last eight months, God has made it abundantly clear to our Superintendent Search team that He has been preparing the next leader of our school right here within our institution. The journey to this announcement has included a multi-leveled interview process, a recommendation by the search team, affirmation from the MCC Elder Board, and an offer presented by the Board of Trustees which was accepted by Mr. Griest.
A bit about Jared Griest:
Mr. Griest, a 2004 alumnus, is no stranger to the MCCS family, having grown up as a part of both the school and church. After graduation from MCCS, he went on to obtain a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration at Cedarville University. Since that time, he and his wife, Katie, have been actively involved in both the school and church and have three children enrolled at MCCS.
Over the past decade, Jared has served in multiple capacities at MCCS, including Director of Advancement, Athletic Director, and Assistant to the Superintendent.
He currently holds an ACSI Executive Director Certification and is in the process of obtaining a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and Business Administration.
Mr. Griest holds an uncompromising commitment to the Word of God and a love for our Lord Jesus Christ. His heart for the MCCS ministry and his passion to do all things with excellence are just a few of the characteristics we are excited about as he transitions into this role.
“I cannot wait to see what God has in store for the ministry of Mount Calvary Christian School. Our students are the heartbeat of MCCS, and the faculty are a dynamic group of educators who fulfill the mission of Pursuing Christ and Preparing Students.” – Jared Griest
We are so grateful for the abundance of God’s blessing on this ministry over the past nine years under the leadership of Dr. Sheard, and we are filled with great anticipation as the Lord has provided another leader who is passionate about providing a Christ-centered education for our students and fulfilling the mission of MCCS.
Please join us in welcoming Jared Griest to this new role, and thank you for continuing to partner with us in prayer for the exciting future of MCCS!
