Board of Trustees


Greetings from Jeff Read, MCS Chairman of the Board

The School Board is a dynamic group of volunteers committed to the success of the students, families, and faculty of Mariners Christian School. Their primary responsibilities are to set policy, assist in long-range planning, provide financial and legal oversight, serve as ambassadors for the school, and hire, support, evaluate the Head of School.

Board members are committed Christians who typically have experience in leadership and/or management, or prior leadership on non-profit boards. Members are carefully selected through a self-perpetuation process, and they reflect a balance in church affiliation, gender, age of children, home city, and professional background.

Please feel free to contact the MCS Board at mcsboard@marinerscs.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
