Matt Counts - Secondary Assistant Principal

This is my fifth year serving at Midland Christian. After graduating from MCS in 2013 I earned my Bachelor's degree at Hardin-Simmons University and completed my Master's in Education through Hardin-Simmons. I am blessed with a beautiful wife, Allie, and our wonderful daughter, Mary Kate. While at MCS, I have taught World Geography and coached football, basketball, and track. I am excited to transition into an administrative role and look forward to the 2021-2022 school year! 

Students in Grades Six and Eight are at a very critical time of transition - emotionally, intellectually, and physically. The Middle School program is sensitive to the unique learning needs of our students as they make this transition.

Midland Christian Middle School offers a comprehensive high school preparation program for Six and Eighth Grade Students in a Christian environment. The curriculum is determined by standards established by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and enhanced by other offerings such as Computer Science, Speech, Study Skills, Spanish, and Art. Special opportunities for leadership in student government and participation in the forensic competition provide added academic incentives.

The academic emphasis is rooted in basic skills like Reading, Math, Science, and History. Algebra I and Spanish I are available to accelerated students who wish to gain high school credit during their Middle School years.

Middle School students at MCS are encouraged to learn through stimulating academic experiences and a variety of out-of-classroom activities. This is accomplished in a Christian environment with daily non-denominational Chapel Assemblies and Bible classes, contributing to the growth of the whole Student.
