Mr. Schout

I feel incredibly blessed to be the new principal at Muskegon Christian School. The church, parents, students, staff, community, and administration all play an important role in the life and education of a child. MCS has been a model in this collective community effort which has resulted in allowing the school to uphold a rich tradition of Christian academic and cultural excellence.


I started my teaching career at Phoenix Christian School teaching Physical Education and Health. Since then I have been in public school education teaching and serving as an athletic director in Phoenix and Detroit. My wife, Becky, and I are very excited to be back in West Michigan as I grew up in Holland and Becky in St. Joseph. Our son, Simon, will be in four-year-old preschool at MCS and our daughter, Nora, just turned one!
