Todd Perkins, Head of School

Mr. Todd Perkins joined Friends Christian School as Head of School on July 1, 2017. He oversees all dimensions of the school, with authority over those who have more specialized expertise. Mr. Perkins brings a unique combination of leadership experience, commitment, and relationship to FCS. Since his B.A. cum laude graduation from Fresno State, and his M.B.A. graduation with distinction from McColl School of Business at Queens, he has poured his life into educating our youth. With his reputation as a respected educational/organizational/financial leader, Todd knows how Christian schools work!

Early in his career, he was a nationally certified public school psychologist, and from there he moved into Christian school administration. For the next ten years, Todd served as Head of School, first in Fairfield, CA, and then in Charlotte, NC. Significant accomplishments included increasing school enrollment, gaining recognition as a National Blue Ribbon School, and providing financial stability.

In August of 2006, Todd began his tenure at Mariners Christian School in Costa Mesa. During his eleven years there, he wore several hats: Director of Operations and Finance, Interim Head of School, and his current role, Chief Administrative/Financial Officer (which includes the direct supervision of all department heads). God has certainly blessed his ministry with fruit, such as a six-year ACSI/WASC accreditation term, increased student enrollment, National Blue Ribbon School status, a balanced budget, and annual development efforts approaching one million dollars. The combination of Todd’s business background, his educational/instructional background, and his administrative background makes him the ideal choice for Friends Christian School.

Over the last decade, he has often worked with the administrators at FCS during ACSI events, many of which were hosted on FCS campuses. He was also on the last FCS accreditation team, which means that he’s extremely knowledgeable about the philosophy, policies, and procedures. In his own words, Todd is “a Christian educator, strongly interested in FCS, an educational institution that values exemplary academics in a Christian setting.”
