The Mennonite Brethren Collegiate Institute (MBCI) is a private middle and high school located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It was founded in 1945. It has approximately 200 students from Grade 6 to Grade 12.[2]

MBCI has a strong volleyball program: both men's and women's teams have won provincial championships.[3] The band has also won the Optimist Festival's Chairman's Award.[4]

Though MBCI is an inclusive school and has students of all kinds, MBCI's culture is most informed by the Mennonite Brethren religious community—a strand of Protestant Anabaptism noted for its adherence to pacifism. MBCI's culture is different from many stereotypical high schools; competitive athletes are frequently also members of the band or choir. Such practices are likely a result of the welcoming, community-oriented values of the institution.
