Assessment Information

Transitional Kindergarten & Kindergarten Applicants

We utilize the Chancy and Bruce Developmental Assessment to help partner with parents regarding their child’s readiness for Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten. Many local preschools also utilize this screening as part of their late winter program. If your preschool offers the assessment, you are welcome to have your child screened at their preschool. When you complete the forms at the preschool, please indicate you would like a copy of the results sent to Mariners Christian School.

For your convenience, we will also offer three screening dates here at Mariners Christian School for the 2019-2020 school year. If you wish to schedule your child for one of these dates or have any questions regarding the screening itself, please contact Chancy & Bruce directly at 714.841.1257 or

Screenings at MCS are scheduled every half hour from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on 3 dates spread throughout January and February. We will offer a Chancy and Bruce Parent Workshop to help you understand your child’s results in mid-March.

Students applying to 1st-8th grades will take an academic assessment with our MCS Teachers. Students are tested in the areas of reading, writing, and math.
