Meet the Teacher | 8.1.24

Want a chance to meet your teacher and get to know other students in your class before the first day of school? Meet the Teacher is the perfect event for students to take a look around the school and prepare for the big day!

Students will have the opportunity to meet their teachers, meet other students in their classes, and walk their schedules. They will also be able to find their lockers and walk the route to each of their classes. Each new Middle and Upper School student has the option to have a buddy (a current NCCS student) to help them through their first day of school. 

More details about times and specifics for Meet the Teacher will be shared during the summer!

 

Anne Wilson's Thank-You to our Chorus Program

Our 5th and 6th grade chorus, under Director Amy Wallace, performed Anne Wilson's "My Jesus" at this year's spring chorus concert. In a really cool full-circle alumni story, Avery Wright - class of 2013 and son of Director of Admissions Beth Wright - is the drummer for Anne Wilson's band. He showed Anne the videos of our chorus singing her song, and because she's an ANGEL, she sent back this personal video, thanking our students for reminding her that God is using her music. 

The videos of Anne's thank-you, followed by the NCCS 5th/6th chorus rehearsing (note the AMAZING Mrs. Wallace getting them out of their shells!) and then performing the song, are linked down below! This is what happens when Jesus connects the coolest of people.

Avery played with Anne -- the K-Love Radio Female Artist of the Year — at CMA Fest June 7th-9th in downtown Nashville.

SO proud of Avery and in awe of the doors God continues to open for our students to shine in their gifts — both on campus and far beyond!
 

 

Upper School Phase 2 Update!

Phase Two of our Upper School Building is coming together beautifully, with the goal of our students moving into this wonderful space during fall semester 2024! 

Our 75,000-square-foot Upper School facility was built in two phases. The first phase, which opened in January 2021, includes 24 classrooms, a STEM Center with a SOAR Lab and Makeshop, counseling offices, and administrative spaces. The second phase, which is currently being built adjoining phase one, will bring all daily Upper School activities -- from lunch to chapel to classes -- into one location.

OTHER CAMPUS ADVANCEMENTS

Other exciting advancements around campus include newly installed baseball field lights, as well as a new softball / middle school baseball field that is currently under construction. The new field will relocate the existing field, making way for the future Fine Arts Complex. In addition to a lighted turfed field, this new athletics space will include a concession stand and an indoor facility with batting cages, a locker room, and restrooms. 

We are blessed for our students to benefit from these new improvements as we seek to provide every opportunity to develop students' God-given gifts for His glory!

 

Spring Term 2024-2025

Get ready for Spring Term 2025!

We are so excited for all that the Lord has in store for Spring Term 2025 here at NCCS!

This year's Spring term looks slightly different for the Upper School as we are moving the trips up and towards the end of Christmas break. With that being said, sign-ups will also be pushed up and they are now going to be on June 10, with different sign up time slots depending on your grade level. 

You can choose to travel internationally to Belize, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Kenya, or Peru, or domestically to Charleston, the Golden Isles, Southwest Adventure, Nashville, or New Orleans. If you want to stay local, there are also many places to choose from, including Proverbs 31:30, Local Missions Acworth, Cartersville, and Kennesaw, Makers, Establish Your Heart, and more!

For middle school, Spring Term will still occur the week before Spring Break. The options here.

We cannot wait to see all that the Lord will do through Spring Term 2025!
