Staff & Faculty

"Dedication" is one word that epitomizes the Shoreline Christian School faculty and staff. Our teachers have many years of teaching experience, with an average of 17 years at Shoreline Christian, and many of our other personnel has spent more than ten years on staff. As Christians, we feel called to carry out the mission of Shoreline Christian School and show it every day in our classrooms and hallways.

Teaching and working at SCS is more than just a job; we find value in building relationships with students and their families. Each student is specially made by God to be a unique individual, and we believe in treating them that way. We make ourselves available to help students, talk with parents, and work with each other to make sure the students are getting the most out of their education.
