The Middle School Program at NCCS

The middle school years between 5th and 8th grades are a time of identity formation and critical spiritual exploration.

The adventure has begun! And isn’t that what Middle School should be? An adventure? After all, this is an unprecedented season of growth and change.

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 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 our classrooms and throughout our halls, students are guided towards truth — both scriptural Truth and the truth of who they are, at their core. In truth, they find freedom. And in that freedom, they soar.

The Heart of NCCS Christian Middle School

My joy is I get to be a Bible teacher at NCCS. Every day in the classroom, I get to interact with some amazing eighth graders; I tell my students I have the best job in the world. People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care, so it is my joy to come alongside each of my eighth graders and form relationships with them as the Holy Spirit leads, helping them grow in their faith. SCOTT FRASER, Middle School BIBLE TEACHER

There is a tangible difference that can be felt as you walk the halls of the NCCS Middle School. In fact, the number one comment we receive from parents and students alike is that our school just feels different, that it “feels like home.” This difference is not achieved accidentally; rather, it is the purposeful result of combining a loving, passionate and skilled faculty with a research-based, biblically-founded instructional program geared specifically towards adolescents.
