Mill Woods Christian School, located in southeast Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, is an alternative school in the Edmonton Public School System.

With its campus situated in the neighbourhood of Tweddle Place in Mill Woods, it has been serving the community since 1978. The school opened as an independent school under the direction of Calvary Community Church, a non-denominational church in south Edmonton. Over the years the school population steadily increased as more and more parents began to choose Christian education for their children. In 2000, the school entered into an agreement with the Edmonton Public School Board, and now operates as an alternative program with EPSB.

Although the district of Edmonton it is located in is spelled "Mill Woods", the school's name is spelled "Millwoods", which is a very common misinterpretation of the name and in most cases has actually become the norm among the public when referring to the community.
