Leadership development at all ages

Weekly chapel services

We live to discover and share the love of Jesus Christ through a quality Christian education.

By keeping our school size small, your kids are able to be connected and known by their teachers, our staff, and their friends. When that connection is combined with an award-winning education, leadership development, and Christian values, students flourish and become well-prepared for whatever life brings their way.

What is the Messiah Difference?

There are great schools all around St. Charles. Here’s what makes us different:

Unwavering faith in Jesus Christ

Helping students develop a love for Jesus is the foundation of our school. We partner with you to help your kids grow in their faith and become confident in Christ’s love for them.

Caring relationships

A teacher isn’t just your teacher for one year. At Messiah, our faculty is your child’s cheerleader and advocate throughout their years at Messiah and beyond.

Realized potential and academic excellence

As a National Blue Ribbon school, our academics have been recognized as performing at the highest levels. Over 60% of our teachers have advanced degrees or specialty education.

Leadership and poise

We help you equip and raise up the next generation of leaders. Messiah students get age-appropriate experience leading large and small groups in a supportive environment. Public speaking and leadership skills benefit our students throughout their lives.

Emphasis on serving the community

We are all a part of something bigger than ourselves. Messiah students learn from a young age the importance of serving all people, both in our local area and around the world.

Fun matters at Messiah

Growing up is challenging sometimes, so we balance hard work and character development with fun, exciting activities that create core memories for our students.

Student safety is a priority for us.

We follow best practices and guidelines from law enforcement authorities to ensure our school is prepared to respond to an emergency situation.

Our safety protocols include regular drills to ensure that our students and staff are familiar with our procedures in case of an emergency.

Our campus is equipped with security cameras and locked exterior doors.
