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 private school campus in North Georgia, 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.
In many families, regardless of political preference, emotions run high regarding the election, and as parents, we may fail to remain cognizant of what our children are learning from our response to the current political scene. Consider stopping to ask yourself, “What are my children learning from my words, my attitude, and my nonverbal behaviors?” Research notes that at least 70 percent of communication is nonverbal. What are you communicating to your children? No doubt they feel the strong emotions, and often they don’t know how to put any of it into perspective in light of our Christian faith.
On November 19, North Cobb Christian School held the official ribbon cutting for the NCCS Upper School, the school’s new cutting-edge high school facility. The 38,000 square-foot complex is designed to foster creativity and innovation, including a STEM center with a robotics lab, physics lab, and makerspace, as well as student collaborative spaces, 24 classrooms, a college and guidance counseling suite, administrative space, a designated high school clinic, and more!
More NCCS athletes making the podium this fall! Way to go, NCCS mountain biking team for placing FIRST among 1A schools and 21st among all 1A-7A schools in the state at the state championship race this weekend in Milledgeville!
PSA: The cutest day on campus just happened, and it was ADORABLE. Our K3 and K4 preschool students held their annual Pumpkin Day and Petting Zoo as a culmination of their fall seasonal unit -- and, yes -- it was the best thing we've seen in 2020!

Both Middle School A and B Volleyball teams won their Metro 10 Championship games this past week!
Through books, you can explore distant lands, go back in time, and -- our favorite -- glean empathy by "walking" in someone else's shoes. We recently added 40 new titles to our Reading Room (our precious library for K3 - 4th grade students). The titles share perspectives on students with diverse academic needs, families from a variety of cultures throughout God's world, and children with various abilities and backgrounds.
This is family! This year, our Timothy Program -- which pairs Upper School students with Middle and Lower School students for mentoring and encouragement -- had a RECORD NUMBER of Upper School students sign up as mentors! Check out these precious pairs who have volunteered their time to bless each other this year.
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!
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.
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
