Murray Academy

Murray Academy

The Murray Academy is a full-day preschool program for three-year-old and four-year-old students at the state-of-the-art Stuart and Eulene Murray Academy, located on the Lower School campus of Mount Pisgah Christian School.

Each day students engage with learning in a loving environment through interactive activities and play. With small classroom sizes, teachers prepare Preschool 3s and 4s students for the next stage of learning.
Children open a new world of discovery through technology and multi-sensory experiments. Students participate in Chapel, Atelier, music, P.E. and STEAM classes each week. They grow in faith through chapel programs featuring singing and dancing and Bible curriculum. 

In the Atelier space, our Atelierista, or art specialist, provides a variety of creative experiences through music, clay, light and shadow, loose parts, paint, nature, movement and sound.  

Curriculum and Schedule

In the Murray Academy, elements of formal instruction and curriculum will be introduced to strategically prepare children for school. Children will have substantial opportunities to focus on gross and fine motor skills and social and emotional development. Basic concepts in language arts, math, and science will be introduced in engaging activities and through the arts and experiments. In the Murray Academy, the majority of instruction is completed in the morning, followed by an afternoon that includes a designated lunchtime, snack time, and rest time.

The Stuart and Eulene Murray Academy

First made possible by Mount Pisgah Church’s generous gift to the school of the South Campus property itself, the Murray Academy is the standard-bearer for what preschool education can be when facilities match the skill and commitment of the teacher and the sense of wonder of the child.  
The Stuart and Eulene Murray Foundation has a strong history of serving Christian education by supporting programs that are making a difference. The Murray Academy is named in recognition of the Murray Foundation's $1 million grant in support of the new preschool facility. We are deeply grateful for this generous grant that will make it possible for MPCS to show the love of Christ and lay a strong learning foundation for preschoolers for years to come.
