Are the teachers at MCC qualified?
All teachers have state certifications required for a teaching position in Michigan. In addition, most teachers at MCC possess additional and/or advanced degrees as well as past experience aligned with their teaching specialties.
Can my child attend MCC if we’re not Catholic?
YES. MCC accepts students from all faith traditions. We offer a Christ-centered learning environment that encourages students to treat each other with care and respect. Catholic traditions and teachings do take place during the school week; students from other faith traditions participate in those activities. Since substantial support for the school comes from contributions made at weekly Sunday Masses, non-Catholic families are asked to pay slightly higher tuition.
MCC has a 100% graduation rate.
And a 93% college persistence rate*.

MCC offers low tuition among Catholic schools in Northern Michigan.
Studies show that families who send their children to schools with uniforms spend less on student clothing than their counterparts.
