Mountainview International Christian School is an inter-mission, co-educational, boarding and day-school, founded in 1981 by missionary groups in order to have a place to educate their children. Today this purpose remains as the major mission of Mountainview. Our students come largely from families who are here as Christian workers, but we also admit children from the international business community. The student body has representatives from many different countries, but they all must be proficient in English in order to enter the regular MICS program. Boarding is available to students whose families live too far away for a daily commute. Our school is located in Salatiga, Central Java, the most populated island in the Indonesianarchipelago.

Mountainview is accredited by Association of Christian Schools International, and we follow an American curriculum taught from a biblical worldview for all grades Kindergarten through 12. The language of instruction is English, and our curriculum is taught from a Christian viewpoint. We also provide several extra-curricular activities such as: drama, basketball, soccer, volleyball, yearbook, intramural sports, youth group and music lessons. In addition to the core subjects of English, math, social studies, science, Bible and foreign language, we offer a number of electives such as: art, multi-media, music and advanced math and science courses. Sponsorship and Benefits:
It is our desire that every teacher come with the blessing and prayer support of their family and home church congregation. We also strongly encourage our teachers to consider joining an official sending agency that can provide training and support before and after arriving on the field. Where finances are concerned, our school does offer a modest financial benefits package for those who need it, but we encourage our staff to pursue other avenues of additional financial support as possible.
By raising support, our teachers can help our school keep tuition rates low for the mission families we serve. The available Mountainview benefits do include a stipend, housing, and insurance for those who have limited financial support. The plan does not include social security payable in one’s home country, nor does it include the initial flight into Indonesia or the cost of the visa payable in the home country. For more information regarding our benefits package, suggestions for raising support, or ideas for finding a sending agency, please email Bill Webb by clicking this link.Work Schedule:
