Midland Christian School was recently approved for a five-year accreditation by Christian Schools International.
“We worked hard to achieve this status,” said Head of School, Carianne Robbins. “Accreditation recognizes Midland Christian School with what is regarded as the gold seal of excellence from a nationwide accrediting body that has been working to advance Christian education for nearly 100 years.“
“It also reassures families that send their children to Midland Christian School that they are receiving an excellent education that is integrated with our Christ-centered mission,” Robbins said.
The accreditation was awarded after a year-long process followed by a two and a half day on-site visit by a team of six educational professionals from various schools in Michigan and Georgia. The team reviewed the validity of information the school submitted, analyzed school improvement goals and collaborated with the faculty and board to explore what the school will look like in five years when it accomplishes the goals of its school improvement plan.
Accreditation is both significant and a significant effort, according to Bob VanWieren, Accreditation Program Director of Christian Schools International of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
“Schools must analyze their academic program, student services and operations based on best-practice standards and their own Christian mission,” VanWieren said. Midland Christian School joins a select group of 112 other schools accredited by Christian Schools International.
“We are excited about where God is leading Midland Christian School in the next five years,” Robbins said. “We have a great team of teachers, parents and board members working together to make sure we have a solid foundation of excellence in the education we provide. This accreditation is confirmation that we’re on the right path and encourages us to press on to the high calling of educating children to impact the world for God’s glory.”
Midland Christian School is a multi-denominational school founded in 1960.

Raising the next generation of Christ-like men and boys is a responsibility and a privilege. It seems like a daunting task at times fighting against moral decay, violence, hopelessness and all the pressures of society. We should approach these challenges with guidance.
We have the privilege of receiving guidance from Brian Molitor, who has written three books on parenting and formed the Malachi Global Foundation, which inspired by Malachi 4:6 strives to “turn the hearts of fathers to the children and the hearts of children to their father.”
Molitor is also the CEO of Molitor International, which has been consulting and training international clients for over 30 years, including companies in the business, healthcare, government and ministry sectors.
At 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 11, Brian Molitor will be giving an interactive presentation for men and boys following a free meal hosted by Midland Christian School. This event will focus on empowering local men, including coaches, mentors, and fathers, with the skills to develop stronger relationships with boys and young men.
Molitor will place a particular emphasis in his presentation on strategic planning, lifelong mentoring, intentional blessing and rites of passage for boys.
This event is completely free. Anyone interested in attending the complimentary meal and presentation is invited to register online at guysnightouttickets.eventbrite.com or call to reserve a place at (989) 835-9881.
