North Cobb Christian School just feels


We hear these words continually from parents and students alike. From our founding in 1983 by a few faithful families to today’s thriving student body of over 1,100 learners from K3 through 12th grade on our expansive 50-acre private Christian school campus in Kennesaw, Georgia, NCCS has stayed true to our calling of “family.”

The Vision of NCCS


NCCS isn't just a school. It's family.

The top comment we receive from students and parents is that NCCS “feels like home.” This isn’t coincidental. We intentionally cultivate a culture of faith, support and love through small class sizes, programs where students discover their unique genius, and countless opportunities for students to bond and grow together -- from weekly chapel to retreats, and from peer mentoring to Spring Term trips. The bottomline: we are more than a school. We are a family.

Our children aren’t just taught -- they’re loved. We couldn’t ask for our kids to be surrounded by better mentors. NCCS Parent

Cultivating Hearts

Firm foundations of faith & identity. 

At NCCS, Jesus is the center, and that makes all the difference. We exist to lead students towards grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Additionally, we believe that if students discover their unique gifts and interests, they develop a strong sense of who God made them to be. With this sense of identity comes a great advantage: Our students know who they are … they know Whose they are … and they are empowered to live with purpose.

I choose to teach at NCCS because, here, I have the gift of openly sharing my love for Jesus with my students.

Challenging Minds

Individualized education equates to incredible success.

NCCS’s unique, individualized approach develops students’ unique genius at our private school in Cobb County. We offer STEM/STEAM for preschool - 12th grade, on-campus dual enrollment, five NCCS Academies (magnet programs), extensive AP + honors, and innovative college counseling. We have a 100% graduation and college acceptance rate, including Harvard, Brown, Johns Hopkins, and hundreds more. Graduating classes earn ~$10 million in scholarships; over 30% of grads earn a 4.0 or higher.

Impacting Culture

At NCCS, we send our students out, and we invite the world in. 

Our students thrive through “global classroom” experiences that allow them to impact our world for Christ. Students in preschool through 12th grade participate in regular community service, from charities in our own backyard to global Spring Term missions trips. NCCS also houses a robust International Student Program, hosting students from around the globe who thrive amidst our beautifully diverse student body. 

Serving the community became a natural part of my life at NCCS. In serving, I gained much more than I gave. NCCS Alumni

It’s hard to explain, but the minute we walked in the doors of NCCS, it felt like home.
Our whole family has thrived within this precious school’s tight-knit community.

Why We Love North Cobb Christian School (NCCS)

Synclair Savage



In addition to feeling like a family, what makes NCCS so special is how the teachers and coaches really encourage you to develop your talents and explore diverse interests. My schedule was set up so I had time for track, time for band, time for my classes, and time to be in the [spring] musical. Everyone here works with you to balance your schedule, so you can achieve everything you want to achieve. Synclair Savage, Alumni class of '20

The Turnboughs

Parents + Board Member


NCCS has been a tremendous partner in the training of our children, the reinforcement of godly character, and the development of academic, athletic, and artistic gifting. It has literally been a second home for our family. So much so, that upon graduation from college, Moriah has returned to NCCS to serve as a teacher and pour into others what she has gained. Then this year, the school opened its doors to our treasured niece, as well — another Turnbough under NCCS’s wings.

The Watsons

Alumni Parents


More importantly than all the awards, statistics and honors is the fact that the WORD was poured into our sons day in and day out for their entire school career. NCCS faculty and staff demonstrated and taught the love of Christ, showed grace and mercy, guided, disciplined, and modeled the Christian life for my boys for the 17 years that we were privileged to be a part of the school. The Christ-focused mission of the school and the way that mission is carried out on a daily basis has made a huge impact on molding and shaping each Watson boy. We are eternally grateful for the lessons learned and the love received for the past two decades. Well done, NCCS!The watson family, Mark (class of 2017), Jake (class of 2019), and Nate (class of 2021)
Mark and Nate were valedictorians of their classes; Jake was salutatorian and STAR student (highest SAT score) of his. 




NCCS teachers are the cream of the crop. The lives of our children are radically different because of the impact their teachers have made on their hearts. They truly love Jesus with their whole hearts and love our children as if they were their very own. I don’t even have words to express how much this means to our family. Dean + Gabrielle Fung A Wing, NCCS ParentS

I love the beautiful diversity at NCCS. We have had opportunities to welcome students from so many parts of the globe as part of our International Program. I love coming into the cafeteria and seeing a Chinese student sitting with Korean, Brazilian, and American students and watching them laugh with each other.Emily Siller, Upper School Counselor

Preschool + JK5

First educational steps. Firm foundations for life.

Our private Christian preschool program at NCCS is a magical, engaging experience that not only equips our students for kindergarten, but also taps into their natural curiosity and creativity. Our preschoolers gain an invaluable and lasting excitement for learning with a faith-based foundation. Students thrive through individualized instruction in a safe, loving environment where they are fully known and nurtured by certified teachers.

We could not have asked for a better preschool experience for our daughter. She grew academically by leaps and bounds and entered kindergarten ahead of the curve. Better yet, she was taught biblical truth and shown the love of God every day. NCCS Parent

Lower School

Immense discovery, curiosity, and spiritual formation.

At North Cobb Christian School, young learners from kindergarten through 4th grade thrive in a Christ-centered atmosphere designed to promote academic, spiritual, and social growth.

With nurturing teachers and exceptional learning resources, students develop strong foundations as they become well-rounded Christian leaders.

At NCCS, our students are seen and known for who they really are. In Lower School, we tap into their unique gifts, giving them wings to soar into all God created them to be.

Middle School

A time of identity formation and critical spiritual exploration.

At North Cobb Christian School, we perceive adolescence as a time of immense potential — a time for expanded leadership, where students are given increased freedom and responsibility to pursue academic acuity and God-given gifts. Like springs finally released, we watch our students launch forward into all they were created to become. When adolescents are provided with a supportive, nurturing, innovative environment in which to grow and learn, amazing things ensue. For our students, the result is an unshakeable foundation of faith and identity.

In Middle School at NCCS, we seek to answer two questions: ‘What are we building?’ and ‘What tools are we using?’ What we’re building are students’ G.I.F.T.S. (Grit, Identity, Fitness, Talent, and Spiritual Formation). And the tools we’re using are our four buckets: our academic, athletic, fine arts, and student life programs. 

NCCS Middle School Principal Craig Konchak

Upper School

Maximizing these prime years of influence, developing students into world influencers

Students spend more than 700 days in school over the course of their four years in high school. Those influences shape who your child will become. At NCCS, our faculty and staff are the “living curriculum,” doing life alongside our students, influencing, mentoring, and molding them into mature Christian leaders. We believe that God has a specific purpose for each of our students, and we love having a front row seat as His plans unfold.

The goal of the Upper School at NCCS is to cultivate deep thinkers who will sit at the table of influence in the communities where they will work, serve, and raise their families — for the glory of God.
