Welcome to MCS

A Greeting from Our Admissions Director, Ashlee Cowell

We are so pleased you are considering Mariners Christian School for your family! As a mother of three children (one MCS alumni and two current students at MCS), I recall how important choosing the right school for my children was and continues to be. I look forward to sharing with you some of our 30 year history of partnering with families and churches to “build a firm foundation through Christ-centered education.” I encourage you to take a moment to look at what MCS has to offer your family.

We believe that Mariners Christian School sets the standard for academic and spiritually nurturing programs, outstanding and devoted faculty, and commitment to developing a deep sense of love for Christ. Equally important, we have built exemplary academic programming focusing on the whole child through innovation, while fostering a community of connected believers.

We hope you definitely plan on visiting our campus for one of our Preview Events, and/or for our Tours.

We look forward to meeting you and your family and walking through the admissions process with you.

Preview Events

We are pleased to offer two Preview Events each year, one in November and one in January, in which prospective families are invited to tour our campus and meet our administration and faculty. We are currently planning to host both of these events in person, but do want you to know that we may choose to offer one or both of them virtually if circumstances make it necessary.

This year, our Preview Nights are on Tuesday, November 9th, 2021, and Thursday, January 13th, 2022. Both evenings will run from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. RSVP is required. Please click the buttons below to select your date and to RSVP!

Middle School Shadow Days

We typically offer an opportunity for incoming students to attend a chapel, a tour, and a Q&A time with current students and faculty. This is offered in late Spring.
