SINCE 1987

Building a firm foundation through a Christ-centered education

Rated one of the best Christian schools in Orange County, MCS is a co-educational, independent Christian school located in Costa Mesa, California. Established in 1987, our mission is "building a firm foundation through Christ-centered education” in the heart and mind of every child.

Mariners Christian School is committed to building a strong foundation through a Christ-centered education for Orange County families. God launched our private Christian school with the belief that character development and exemplary academics can be offered in a single program. We've had big dreams and He has been with us each step of the way.

As we embark on the next 35+ years, we thank you for your continued prayers, time spent on campus, dedication to building a connected community, and most importantly, heeding His timing in all that we set out to do.

It's a New Thing! It is with great intention that we seek to grow in our understanding of who He is and who we are in Him in our lives, our school, and our community.

"See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." Isaiah 43:19
