Congratulations to NCCS senior K.P. Pierre who has received college acceptances to Harvard University, Brown University, & Johns Hopkins University, in addition to his earlier acceptance at Georgia Tech! K.P. plans to study Biomedical Engineering. This past summer K.P. was selected to participate in a six-month MIT Online Science, Technology, and Engineering Community program for select rising high school seniors from across the country who have a strong academic record and interest in science and engineering. This program included a visit to MIT last July where he completed short courses in Molecular Biology and Astrophysics. As a rising junior, K.P. was selected as a participant in the Brown University Biomedical Engineering Pre-college Program in which he was one of only 25 students selected from across the United States to participate in this distinguished program hosted at Emory University and the CDC in Atlanta. This program gave K.P. the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the most highly regarded leaders in the fields of Neuroscience, Biotechnology and Epidemiology. K.P. was recognized and received the highest scoring grade in the program with 99%. He also received the Lab Award for his outstanding research and lab work. We are proud of K.P. for his hard work and numerous accomplishments!
“Spring terms are full of growth, new friendships, and unforgettable experiences.”

"It has been a truly life-altering trip. I am so extremely thankful to the school, our parents, and the Hope For Guatemala ministry for allowing us to be able to come to this beautiful place. It was amazing to see how happy and genuine all of these people are, despite their situations at home. These people understand the importance of finding our joy in the Lord and not in material items - a concept we Americans too often forget."
- NCCS senior Miranda Phillips - Guatemala Team
"Walking in some of the worst parts of Atlanta, we saw many homeless and less fortunate people. Though some were homeless, they had joy in their spirits and so appreciated our love and prayers. I loved seeing my classmates step up and be the hands and feet and voices for Christ."

"Haiti has clearly shown me the truth behind the statement 'home is where the heart is.' I have considered it a privilege to see the hearts of so many families that hardly have a physical home. While the homes of many Haitian families are minimal, I am so inspired by their faith that the Lord has already prepared a magnificent home for them in eternity."
- NCCS senior Mallory Dennard - Haiti Team
"This week overall has shown me how blessed I am to be living in the United States, as I have seen much poverty. Having hot water, a nice roof over our heads, toilets that flush, air conditioning and plenty of food is something we as Americans take for granted. Despite all this, the Cuban people are very proud and always have smiles on their faces. They are very appreciative and thankful to God for all of their blessings. No matter what, they remain faithful and live each day for the glory of God. This experience has opened my eyes and given me the opportunity to be a light for others despite the language barrier."
- NCCS junior Erika Garcia - Cuba Team

If you haven’t had a chance yet, be sure to read through the blogs found [HERE]. Many of our students have written excerpts in the blogs like the ones above and their descriptions and reflections provide great perspectives into the Spring Term experience at NCCS.
