At Monte Vista Christian School, 
we work constantly to create an environment
where students thrive. That's why so many families
have chosen to invest in their children by giving
them a Monte Vista Christian education. 


A Mission-Oriented Approach to Education & Tuition


Monte Vista Christian School has been offering faith- and values-based education grounded in Christian traditions and mission, serving families from multiple faith perspectives, since our founding in 1926. MVC was started by missionaries, Nell and R.O. Price, with a desire to provide children with an affordable education focused on Christian character and values, as well as academics and life skills. We continue to stay true to our history and tradition — making an exceptional Christian education accessible. 

How do we do it?  
  • We keep Christ at the center of everything we do inside and outside the classroom
  • We pursue excellence in academics, athletics, the performing and visual arts, and character development
  • Our students are seen, known, and valued for who they are, what they believe, where they’ve been, and where they’re going
  • Teach critical life skills through our IB framework, such as how to be principled, open-minded, inquisitive, and an excellent communicator
