About MACS


The Michigan Association of Christian Schools exists to promote, defend and assist Christian education and its institutions in the state of Michigan.


Serving God in our Christian School ministries is most certainly an investment, not just for a season, but for eternity. The time and money spent on Christian Education is so worth it, as we realize we are teaching and training the next generation of Christian leaders.

The degree of depraviltiy today is high and because of that we need to lift our Christian Education banner higher. This is not the time to go at it alone. Your financial and prayerful support of the Michigan Association of Christian Schools allows us to continue to be that help.

We are actively standing for Christian values and our voice is being heard in Lansing and Washington D.C. Thank you for your support. Download the printable applications below.
