MANZANO CHRISTIAN SCHOOL

MCS understands that private school is an expensive commitment for families. According to the council for American Private Education (CAPE), the average cost of private school in America is $8,549 per student per year. To keep MCS fees low, MCS depends on families to participate in fundraisers and volunteer for jobs that would normally be paid from the MCS budget. MCS administration is constantly seeking ways to cut costs and provide funding through grants, private investors, and donations while still providing families with high quality education. Scholarships are available for families with full-time child care assistance contracts. Parents will be responsible for dual enrollment fees and college textbooks that exceed our curriculum fee.
