About MVCS
How Can I Help?

Thank you for visiting the Maricopa Village Christian School, a fully accredited K-8 school operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Our faculty and staff are committed to providing quality education, cultural enrichment, and student support in a Christ-centered environment. We serve the Native Ameircan students and families of the Gila River Indian Community.

Located just southwest of Phoenix, Arizona, MVCS has offered a distinct and contrasting educational choice to the GRIC Maricopa native people since 1943.

Thank you for stopping by. Feel free to learn more about our rich history of service, and how you can help us keep the mission alive!


MVCS seeks to preserve, celebrate, and enrich the history and culture of the Pima-Maricopa native people by providing a Christian education for their children. This wholistic education can ultimately lead them and their families to a more prosperous life and a deep, meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ.

In addition to offering an academic and Bible-based curriculum, MVCS provides transportation, meals, and other support to students. Cultural instruction and family inclusion are integral components of the school's benefits, helping to build community and strengthen families.
MVCS is 100% donor supported. In its continuous mission to meet the educational, physical, spiritual, and social needs of the families in the Gila River Indian Community, we need your help.

You can invest your time, talent, and treasure at MVCS. Our needs include prayer, funds, in-kind donations, and volunteers.
