The Upper School Program at NCCS
Every teenager will spend more than 700 days in school over the course of their four years in high school.
During this season of life, it is likely that your student will spend most of their waking hours with their teachers, coaches, and classmates. Those influences will shape who your child will become.
At NCCS, our faculty and staff are the “living curriculum,” doing life alongside our students, influencing, mentoring, and molding them into mature Christian leaders. We believe that God has a specific purpose for each of our students, and we love having a front row seat as His plans unfold.
“The goal of the Upper School at NCCS is to cultivate deep thinkers who will sit at the table of influence in the communities where they will work, serve, and raise their families — for the glory of God.” Megan Strange, Upper School Principal
During December 2020, North Cobb Christian School opened a new cutting-edge Upper School facility designed to foster creativity and innovation. This 38,000-square-foot complex includes a STEM center with a robotics lab, physics lab, and makerspace, as well as a student collaborative space, classrooms, offices, and an adjacent new parking lot.
The STEM area features industrial-style exposed ceilings, large garage-style doors for open-air learning, and a treasure trove of equipment for the 21st century student: computers, 3D printers and scanners, a laser engraver, a CNC router for woodworking and metalworking, a soldering station with torches and soldering irons, rotary tools, table saws, scroll saws, sewing and textile construction machines, and more. "Essentially, if you can build it, break it, or blow it up, it happens in our Makeshop and SOAR Lab," says NCCS Upper School Principal Megan Strange, who notes that the new building was specifically designed to accommodate advanced learning opportunities for science and technology classes, as well as for NCCS's five Academies (magnet programs).
The building also boasts an intricate filtration and ventilation system, with each classroom being on individualized HVAC systems.
