Middle School

As the parent of a rising middle schooler, you are well aware that your child is approaching a time of transition — academically as high school approaches; socially as navigating relationships becomes more complex; and emotionally as decision-making becomes more impactful and responsibilities increase.

At Monte Vista Christian School, our middle school program is designed to help students discover new interests and passions while also learning to think critically and be more self-sufficient in all aspects of their lives. Below, you’ll find a brief overview of what we offer, including school culture, academic offerings, High School prep, and campus safety. 

“My son attended MVC Middle School from 2018-2021 through the pandemic.  The school administration and staff provided an exemplary educational experience for my boy throughout these challenging years.He grew immensely both academically and emotionally in the warm and supportive environment uniquely provided by MVC.  I have no doubt that my boy acquired the most outstanding preparation possible at MVC Middle School for his future education.” - Alexa, MVC parent

A Safe Environment for Learning and Growing

Nestled on 105 acres in the Monterey Bay area, we take our students’ safety — physical and emotional— very seriously. Our gated campus has trained security personnel on duty whenever school is in session. Bullying is never tolerated here, whether in person or online. We have a Care Team, which includes a full-time licensed mental health therapist, dedicated to the needs of our students.

“The impact Monte Vista Middle School has had on my life has been huge, as I learned important 21st century skills that any successful learner would need. This includes strong presentation skills, organizational skills, a mastery of technology and self-management skills. Not only were my years in Monte Vista Middle School fun, but they were also challenging. That challenge was channeled into growth. This was because of the environment on Monte Vista’s beautiful campus and the truly family-type community and care. Everyone on this campus truly cares about and for you. I grew to be a stronger student and learner.” - Hunter, MVC student


At MVC, we are very intentional about individualized
instruction and relationship-building. We keep our
classes small so that teachers can really get to know
their students, and we’ve built time into the class
schedule to ensure students are able to receive
personalized support on a regular basis.
Middle school students receive care before consequences,
as we see all missteps as opportunities for growth
and character development.
As a Christ-centered community, our students are
recognized when they exemplify Christian character.
Team-building activities and community check-ins ensure
students are actively practicing the principles of
respectfulness and kindness.
Weekly chapel and small-group meetings
are times for spiritual growth and guidance.
Student leadership and community service instill
the importance of service above self.
