We Are MCS
Nationally recognized as a Blue Ribbon School, Mariners Christian School is a coeducational independent Christian school of over 700 students located in Costa Mesa, California. Established in 1987, the school’s mission is “building a firm foundation through Christ-centered education” in the heart and mind of each child. Each student’s development is nurtured in an academically rigorous and Christ-centered environment.
Students benefit from a disciplined academic environment that is challenging, exciting, and diverse, one that encourages a life-long love for learning. Students also benefit from a comprehensive educational program that presents a distinctly Christian worldview in every subject area.
Teachers at Mariners Christian School are passionate about discovering the uniqueness and giftedness of each child. Faculty and staff members are highly skilled and motivated, striving to develop in children the ability to think, reason, study, create, and communicate. Teachers are Bible-believing Christians who are committed to influencing students toward a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Parents at MCS have myriad opportunities to become involved in their child’s educational process, such as volunteering in the classroom, attending Parents in Prayer, or serving on a fundraising committee. Teachers, parents, and administrators partner closely together to ensure that each student achieves his or her greatest God-given potential. Mariners Christian School was awarded the Blue Ribbon status in 2007 and again in 2020.
