In the fall of 1962 Mansfield Christian School began in the lower level of Marion Avenue Grace Brethren Church. The school started with thirty-five students and three faculty members. For a little over two years, the school operated at this location. These first parents and staff members held to the conviction that parents have been given the responsibility by God to teach and train their children. They also held to the principle that education should result from a Biblical philosophy and the next generation should be taught a Christian worldview.
In the fall of 1963 the school was moved to the current facilities located on Logan Road. A gift of 40 acres (160,000 m2) allowed the school to build its first building. In subsequent years, the school experienced four building expansions that included additional classrooms, a gymnasium, athletic fields, and a student-run radio station, WVMC-FM. By 1972 the first graduating class with nineteen students received their diplomas.
