The Marauder Difference:  

What Sets Us Apart


The Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation (MVCSC) has a commitment to provide a positive educational experience that is tailored to meet the children's evolving stages of cognitive development.  MVCSC wants to prepare children for challenges and opportunities - both inside and outside of the classroom.  


Mt. Comfort Elementary School offers a diverse and challenging curriculum with many opportunities where students can succeed, while providing the benefits of a smaller system.  Children have many opportunities through curriculum, clubs and activities.  MVCSC is the right size to provide the balance of endless options for the students while still receiving personal attention.  Students are not just a number and are not lost in the shuffle; Mt. Vernon is small enough to get to know the students and encourage them in their journey.



Mt. Comfort Elementary is located just south of the Mt. Vernon campus serving the southern portion of the Mt. Vernon district and serves kindergarten - grade 5.
