About MTCS



Middle Tennessee Christian School was organized in 1960 and received its charter from the State of Tennessee on December 9, 1960. The purpose given the charter was:

"The building and maintenance of a school and/or schools to provide educational opportunities . . . particularly the teaching of the Bible; to providing a minimum of one class period per day of instruction in the Bible as the inspired word of God for every child enrolled and to emphasize the Bible in every course taught; to provide for Christian influence and environment in every phase of the school’s activities.

A twenty-five acre campus was purchased on Lebanon Road near the airport. After incorporation, modern brick buildings were constructed in the fall of 1962. MTCS operated as an elementary school with kindergarten through the eighth grade until 1975. At that time, the Board of Directors made the decision to add one grade a year until a high school was complete. The first senior class graduated in May of 1979.

MTCS was approved at its inception by the Tennessee State Department of Education. In December of 1978, we received full accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

Legal ownership of MTCS is vested in a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees composed of persons who are members of Churches of Christ. The school is an approved non-profit, tax-exempt organization under Internal Revenue Service Code Section 501-C-3.
