Machias Valley Christian School is a Christ-centered learning community founded on a Biblical worldview, marked by excellence, and committed to developing the whole student for success in secondary education. We strive to unleash a passion for learning and service where teachers lead by example and train students to positively impact the world.


The guiding philosophy of Machias Valley Christian School is to carry out our mission with emphasis on the following set of core values.

Faith Forming

At the heart of MVCS is a desire to see every student, faculty, staff, and family member develop and live out their relationship with Jesus Christ. We do this by creating an environment that forms the foundations of a Biblical worldview and teaches students to articulate and act on their beliefs.

Identity Shaping

Every student is created with unique God given talents and abilities. Our dedicated faculty and staff seek to develop these unique qualities by knowing, respecting, and embracing each individual student and by providing them with varied extracurricular offerings in academics, athletics, the arts, leadership, and service.

World Reaching

MVCS desires to create successful and responsible global citizens who are prepared to thrive in a multicultural society and are passionate about meeting needs worldwide.

Character Building

We believe that character still counts and that true character is developed by modeling Jesus Christ. We seek to teach Christian character traits such as honesty, integrity and humility in a structured and disciplined environment while giving students intentional opportunities to model positive behavior in their everyday experiences.

Community Serving

MVCS is committed to building an engaged school community encompassing faculty, staff, students, and families that reinforces the school’s mission through developing opportunities which lead to thoughtful, effective service in the local community to the glory of Jesus Christ.

Opportunity for Academic Excellence

We seek to create an intellectually stimulating environment that brings together the passions and expertise of faculty and staff with curious young minds in order to develop life-long learners and engaged critical thinkers.
