OVERVIEW

At North Cobb Christian School, we are committed to 21st century learning skills that include both excellence and innovation in the classroom. We believe it is critical for our students to have the best resources available to them at all times, and we recognize that we can achieve this through a variety of new, used, and digital curriculum. Our goal is to make your curriculum purchases as simple and cost-efficient as possible. Our curriculum purchasing program also gives us an opportunity to address multiple learning styles and help our students raise the bar even higher in the area of academic achievement. Please read this information carefully to help you understand the curriculum your student needs to purchase to be ready for the 2019-2020 school year at North Cobb Christian School.  


DIGITAL CURRICULUM
As a result of our One-to-One Technology Program, our transition into digital content has allowed us to improve the curriculum purchase process. If your child requires digital content for any of their classes, NCCS has already purchased the necessary licenses and will simply apply the appropriate charges to your child’s FACTS account.


A COMMON QUESTION
“Can I purchase a hard copy for my student, in addition to the digital content already provided?”  Yes. Any parent wishing to purchase a hard copy textbook in any subject area, in addition to the digital curriculum, may do so through Amazon.com, half.com or any other resource available. Hard copy content is listed as OPTIONAL, below. 


If you have any questions about purchasing your student's textbooks, please contact Gina Piepmeier, NCCS Middle School Administrative Assistant by phone at extension 502 or by email.


Thank you for your willingness to partner with North Cobb Christian School in the education of your middle school student. It is our privilege to provide the best opportunities for your student to succeed and become all that God created him/her to be.  If there is any way that I might be of assistance to you or to your student, please feel free to contact me at any time by phone at 770.975.0252, extension 502, or email.
