“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."

"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."

Spring Term 2018 was an amazing week for our 8th-12th graders! One of the things we hear the most during Spring Term each year is how much everyone enjoys reading the blogs. 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.
