NCS Society & Board of Directors

Nanaimo Christian School is certified by the Province of British Columbia and rated as a Group 1 school under the Independent School Act. As a Group 1 school, NCS must be operated by an “authority” (board of directors) and established as a society.


Nanaimo Christian School is run by the NCS Society’s Board of Directors. All members of the NCS Society in good standing are eligible to serve on the board. Our society is a group of NCS parents, alumni, and staff leadership who meet regularly to share ideas and suggestions that will encourage ongoing strategic development of the school. 


Join the society

Are you a school parent, former NCS parent, alumni, grandparent or staff member committed to Christian education? Join the NCS Society to discuss and vote on school issues and board member nominations at the annual general meeting each year. 


As a member, you can make a lasting difference in the lives of NCS students.


  • Full society membership -- Open to parents/guardians of a child currently enrolled at NCS who are active members of a Christian church. Apply here.

  • Associate membership -- Open to parents of previously and currently enrolled students at NCS, as well as alumni, grandparents, and paid staff members who do not have children attending NCS.

       Apply here.​


*** Application for 2023-24 membership is now open. ***

Serve as a board member

Rather than getting involved in day-to-day operational tasks of the school, NCS board members follow a mission-directed governance model. Our board works to protect the school’s mission and vision while creating direction and inspecting everything through a Christ-centered lens. 


Board member nominations are considered year-round and are voted on at the annual general meeting each fall.

“I volunteer at Nanaimo Christian School because every day I see the staff giving freely of what they have to invest in our children and families. Nanaimo doesn’t have a large Christian population, and I am thrilled to see youth being discipled into leaders that are a light to our whole city.”

Jenn Tonsi, Board chair
