Encouraging lifelong discipleship of Jesus Christ in an educational environment

Matamata Christian School exists to partner with, help and support parents in the education of their children.

Christian education is about developing well educated, highly motivated, disciples of Jesus Christ. For all associated with the school, from a faithfully serving Board of Trustees and MCS Association Executive, through dedicated and hard working staff to parents and caregivers, this is our goal.
