Board Chair and Admissions Committee Chair
Board Member since 2019 – Sharon Carlson is the Director of Recruitment at Gordon College and a member of the Executive Council for the New England Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers. A student development professional with 27 years’ experience in elementary and secondary education, Sharon founded Carlson Education Consulting in 2015. Sharon’s previous roles include serving in the senior administration of Covenant Christian Academy.
Sharon earned her master’s degree in theological studies with a concentration in pastoral counseling from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and her bachelor’s degree in biblical studies and English literature from Gordon College. Sharon and her husband, Chris, have been married for 31 years and are parents to two adult children. She and her family are members of First Congregational Church of Hamilton, where Sharon has served on the Board of Elders.
Vice-chair for NSCS’s Board of Directors, Sharon also heads the Admissions Committee—the perfect match for her expertise in education and her passion for North Shore Christian School’s distinctive educational experience.
“I’ve known NSCS for a long time and have always appreciated how deeply rooted the community is to faith as the foundation of the educational process,” she notes. “Every child is valued and nurtured and feels like an important member of the community. It is a privilege and a joy to serve with NSCS leaders and teachers.”
Looking to the future Sharon says she would like to see NSCS build on its long legacy of Christian education and expand its reach to serve more students. “Continuing to develop our admissions outreach and presence in our local communities will help us grow in the coming years,” she says.
