Mount Zion Christian Schools is a private, coeducational school located at 132 Titus Avenue in Manchester, New Hampshire, United States. The school offers traditional Christian education for grades pre-K-12.
The school was formed in 2004. Its elementary school was formerly known as Faith Christian Academy and Community Christian School. The high school took over teaching the students of the then-closing Concord Christian High School, with some of that school's faculty.
Mount Zion Christian Schools is affiliated with the Intentional Schools. The school is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. The school is also a member of the Granite State Christian Schools Association.
Mount Zion Christian Schools is a coeducational institution. The student body consists roughly of half boys and half girls. The school has a multi-denominational tradition where parents or students are asked to sign a Christian statement of faith before admission is granted.
The school keeps low student-to-teacher ratios with most classes averaging 10 students.

Core subjects are taught using differentiated instruction where classes are taught at three different levels.
