At MCI, we emphasize respect, honesty, care, safety, and responsibility. These values are evident throughout the campus and in the surrounding community, where the locals are comfortable interacting with people from different backgrounds, interests, and beliefs.
Living at MCI
The MCI boarding program provides students with a familial atmosphere where they can learn essential life skills. Lifelong friendships from all over the world are formed at MCI, and it all starts with our boarding program.
Clubs and Activities
MCI's expansive list of clubs covers almost any interest our students would like to pursue. From academic interests such as Math Team or Robotics, to interests outside the classroom such as Outdoor Adventure Club and Ski Club, there is a club for everybody here at MCI.
In the MCI Student Handbook, you will find guidelines that explain what the expectations are for all of our students, as well as a guide to help you organize yourself for a successful school year.
The reason why I chose MCI is because I wanted to enhance my knowledge and experience a new environment... I have many friends from all over the world, and I’m very glad that I chose MCI for my high school experience because I never feel alone.
