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 nearly 1,000 learners on our expansive 50-acre campus, NCCS has stayed true to our calling of “family.”
NCCS isn't just a school. It's family.
Firm foundations of faith & identity.
Individualized education equates to incredible success.
At NCCS, we send our students out, and we invite the world in.
Fall sports are in full swing at NCCS!

400 years ago, the Pilgrims left Plymouth, England, to sail to the "New World." Mr. Childers' class celebrated the quadricentennial of that date by dressing as those early settlers, learning about the journey (Did you know that the Pilgrims missed their original destination of Jamestown and ended up in a place they called Plymouth Colony?), playing games ("Pin the Sail on Plymouth" + Mayflower boat racing across a kiddie pool), and measuring out the size of the boat on the softball field to get a feel for the conditions the Pilgrims endured during their nine-week journey. Sailing through America's history is definitely more fun with Mr. Childers at the helm!
We are blessed by the beautiful work being done at NCCS with regards to diversity and inclusion. Our Unity + Diversity Council has continued to meet since this summer, and this past Wednesday, the council led an all-faculty and staff meeting during Take One Wednesday. Meet our 20-21 council in the video, above, and stay tuned for a parent survey coming next week!
Who caught our story earlier this week that showcased Patrick McDonald, our Flipside and Summer Camps Director, just causally belting out hymns like an ANGEL? This week, Mr. McDonald was also invited to be a special guest in Mrs. Wallace's Upper School Chorus class, offering tips on vocal projection. We're so blessed to have this talented powerhouse at NCCS!
Students in Honors French IV spent the first few weeks of school studying La Presse Française (the French Press). During this unit, les élèves (students) spent time studying bias in the media, examining journalism, learning major tenses, and reporting TRUTH through it all. They were reminded of the real Truth that is the Gospel and how it is our blessing to be able to report on that Truth each and every day!
We often say that our alumni soar, and in this case, we mean it literally.
We’re so proud of Brittany (Ortiz) Williams (class of ’11) who received her Delta wings! She will be flying the Boeing 737 out of New York City.
Congratulations, Brittany! What a great accomplishment!
Step inside … and welcome home.
At North Cobb Christian School, we are excited to open our doors and welcome all prospective families inside.
We invite you to reach out to our Admissions team, so that Beth Wright and Mandy Johnson can personally usher you into the NCCS experience.
What sets NCCS apart? Here, we’re family. And now, more than ever, that really matters.
A letter from Head of School Todd Clingman addressing social and racial injustices, written for the families, faculty, staff and friends of North Cobb Christian School.
Dear NCCS Family,
It is with a humble and contrite spirit that I begin this message to you all — a message that, in full transparency, I feel inadequate to give. Yet, I cannot keep silent in the face of the violent reality of social and racial injustices that we are experiencing in our country. The death of George Floyd and countless other African American men and women — who, though created in the image of God, have fallen at the hands of racism — are inexcusable, wrong, and beyond comprehension. My heart, like yours, is in anguish. Honestly, it has been difficult even to put this message into words because words, themselves, are inadequate. Yet, words are a starting place, and we all must start.
Please join our Academy Directors in offering congratulations to the following students who have been accepted into the NCCS Upper School Academies for the 2020-2021 school year!
These students will join a great community of learners currently involved in robust programs in our Academies, which are akin to magnet programs that allow students to explore a rigorous course of study in a particular area of interest. The NCCS Academies include The Academy of The Arts; The Academy of Business; The Academy of Counseling, Ministry, and Education; The Academy of Exercise and Sport Science; and The STEM Academy.
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
My goal, as a teacher and mentor, is to instill a love for Jesus Christ into my students. I am continually blessed by the people I work with. All of the administration, faculty and staff here at NCCS have a deep love for the students and families they represent. Our united goal is to impact our students for Christ, so that they can, in turn, impact culture. I thank God every day that I have the opportunity to be part of a community and purpose that is focused solely on Him.

We love NCCS for its emphasis on spiritual formation, as well as the development of the whole child. Our children have been challenged and well prepared for college. The teachers, who go the extra mile, just become part of your family -- they invest so much into the kids. We love our school for the community and the depth of learning our children have received and continue to receive.Zack + Tennyson Carden, NCCS Parents
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
