The Middletown Christian Schools’ Foundation was established in 2001 to support the financial needs and encourage development of the MCS school system. Since 2001, the Foundation has served as the funding source for all major construction projects of MCS.
The initial planning for the new building began in 1999, which prompted the establishment of the MCS Foundation. A special board of directors was created to help establish the Foundation as a non-profit organization that would be recognized by the state of Ohio and the IRS. Initial board members consisted of Pastor Roger Green, Dr. Gary Cobb, Mr. Mark Allen, Mr. Philip Flanagan and Mr. Fred Sowards. We are grateful to these men that pursued the vision of what an established foundation could do to help and benefit the school for its future.
In 2001, the Millennial Vision campaign began to raise the funds for the new MCS school building, and phase 1 was completed. Initially, the elementary wing, cafetorium and office complex were scheduled to be completed. Due to the generosity of donors, funds were raised to develop the junior high wing as well. Praise the Lord! On August 15th, 2002 an open house gave everyone a first look at the building that the Lord had provided. In 2005, the school gymnasium was completed, and in 2008, plans to complete the school were finalized.
In 2009, the Eagle Quest campaign helped raise funds to complete the elementary music room, a life skills department (home economics), a classroom and an office suite. Through our generous supporters, we were also able to raise $500K to help pay down the debt of $3.2M. With this new building phase, some high school classes were held in the new building.
In 2012, Eagle Quest II took flight, and more construction was underway. A high school wing corridor, biology lab, finance suite, 3 new classrooms and a teacher’s lounge were all developed to help shape the new high school wing allowing for more students to be taught in the new rooms.
The final construction phase of the school was completed August 15, 2013. Praise the Lord! This last phase of construction consisted of a state-of-the-art chemistry lab, an art department, student restrooms and three additional classrooms. All students are now being taught in one building.
