They embrace a philosophy of love and hard-work coupled with a college-bound curriculum grounded in basic skills, outstanding literature and moral virtues. In partnership with parents, they provide an environment of high expectations and accountability that equips all students with the choice to determine their success in life.

In addition to the core curriculum of phonics, poetry, vocabulary, foreign language and mathematics, MCP offers physical education, art and music classes once per week in elementary and twice per week in Middle School. Many students stay after school to get involved in extra-curricular activities.
