PowerSchool is a private and secure parents’ portal that allows parents to view information specific to their children while protecting their children’s information from others.
We shifted to this new software this year and are still in the onboarding process. Eventually you will be able to view academic information such as your child’s grades and attendance amont other items. Thank you for your patience as we migrate to the new system. We will communicate with you once the transition is complete and access to all the data is possible.

Hot lunch is offered every day at MCS and we are excited to partner with parents to encourage healthy eating habits in our students. We have a couple of initiatives to make healthy eating more ‘palatable’ for our students:
Challenge Accepted! If you wander down to the cafeteria you will see a sign onto which only the bravest will be named. A ‘challenge food’ will be set up every other Monday. The students that try and eat the ‘challenge food’ will go down in infamy with their names on the board. Challenge foods might include fresh avocado, celery with sunflower butter, and other nutrient-rich options that might be new to our students. Encourage your kids to try it and ask what they thought afterward. Our teachers will also dialog with students before challenge foods are offered to encourage participation. We hope to see many brave names on the sign!
We are setting up a salad bar! Our hope is that we can eventually offer this option every day to our students. We are looking for ways to make this happen soon.
We ask that our parents encourage healthy snack and lunch options for students as well. Partner with us to raise up healthy young bodies and minds. Thank you!
We participate in the federally funded Free and Reduced lunch program for qualifying families. Call the Muskegon Christian School office at 231-773-3221 or email us for more information on registering for this program.
Current families can log into PowerSchool for the monthly hot lunch menu and lunch account balances.
SCRIP (T.R.I.P.) PROGRAM
SCRIP (T.R.I.P.) is a volunteer-run program that helps you pay down your tuition while you shop! There are over 500 local & national retailers that participate. Those retailers sell gift cards to MCS at a reduced rate, we sell them to you, and you redeem them, at full face value. The difference between the MCS purchased price and the face value is then credited to your tuition account.
SCRIP orders may be placed online CLICK HERE, call the Muskegon Christian School office at 231-773-3221 or email us for the school enrollment code. We also have a large selection of cash & carry gift cards available from our SCRIP office.
The MCS SCRIP office is open on Wednesdays from 8:00 AM to noon.
