History[edit]

Mount Pisgah Christian School was founded in 1986 by Mount Pisgah United Methodist Church with the goal of providing an enriching program for students in a Christian environment.[3]

The school opened with 70 preschool students and has rapidly grown and expanded. In 1996, construction began on a new Lower School to house the burgeoning student population and quickly grew to include a Middle and Upper School. It wasn't until 2001 that Mount Pisgah began offering a high school education.[4] Fourteen years later, Mount Pisgah has made significant upgrades in its short history. The most recent upgrade consisted of a new education building, Geier Hall.[5] Mount Pisgah now offers a premier preschool, both half and full day programs, as well as Junior Kindergarten through twelfth grade.[3]
