our story

On September 5, 1917, fifty-eight students, in a one-room schoolhouse with one teacher, began a tradition of quality, Christian education that has persevered and prospered to include more than 225 students, multiple classrooms, teachers, and support staff.


The founding fathers and mothers were committed to the idea of Christian education.


Today, we partner with our parents to continue that vision, leaving a legacy of hope for the future. The investment is substantial. The reward is eternal.

Our mission

The mission of Moline Christian School is to provide a quality, Christ-centered education, equipping students for a life of service to their Lord.


To accomplish this mission, we employ teachers and staff members who love Jesus Christ and desire to share His love with students.   As our logo states,  we're committed to "building God's Kingdom together".  


We strive to teach, in cooperation with the home and the church, all that is necessary for children of God to occupy their places worthily in church, state, and society.  


Our theme for the 2018-19 school year is "Soar".


He gives strength to the weary and  increases the power of the weak.  Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and no grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.


Isaiah  40:29-31

Why Choose MCS?

Our theme last year was "Rooted in Christ", and as students, faculty, and staff members, we watered and weeded and watched our spiritual roots mature and grow deeper.   Each and every year, we celebrate being 'rooted' in Moline, a close-knit, rural farming community where families and neighbors have worked, lived, and worshiped together in close community.  We consider ourselves blessed to teach and serve in this wonderful place.    


A few more reasons why Moline Christian School is a great choice for you and your children:  


First and foremost, we love kids!  Our teachers and staff love Christ and look forward to the joys and challenges of molding your child after Christ's example.  We consider it a blessing to be able to teach your child in an environment where Christ is not only discussed but where His love and grace are poured out in everyday experiences.  


We believe in strong academics but also recognize the importance of each child's emotional, spiritual and physical growth.  We understand that teaching Christ's love and grace is our number one priority.   


Our teaching is grounded in Reformed doctrine and utilizes the NIV Bible.  

Over 40 different churches and congregations are represented by our student body.  


All students in grades K-8 participate in chapel for a time of worship and learning each week.
