Student Life

Student Life is one of the “four buckets” at North Cobb Christian School — a main element of our school program that encompasses biblical maturity, student relationships, extracurricular experiences, and spiritual growth.

The NCCS Student Life program creates environments and opportunities to worship, connect, serve, and grow in Christ for every Lower, Middle, and Upper School student. Whether it’s worshiping in weekly chapels, connecting with others on retreats, participating in monthly small groups, serving our community, going on Spring Term mission trips, or personally growing in their relationship with Christ, our students’ lives are forever changed through Student Life at NCCS.

Student Life Programs


K3 - 12th grade


At NCCS, chapel creates a space for students in K3 through 12th grade to connect, worship, and dive into God’s Word together. Chapel aligns our NCCS family with the mission of the original church in Acts 2:42, “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”

Fall Retreat

5th - 12th Grade Annually 


All 5th through 12th grade students launch into fall semester with fall retreat, providing a firm foundation of faith and friendship. This all-encompassing retreat allows students and faculty to connect with one another and spur each other on as we center our hearts and minds on Christ (Hebrews 10:24-25).

Community Service

K3 - 12th grade throughout the year


Community Service is one of the core values of North Cobb Christian School, mirroring how Jesus himself interacted with others: “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve” (Mark 10:45). As we seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the world around us, community service provides our students with incredible opportunities to impact their world for Christ.

Spring Term

Annually 5th - 12th grade


Middle and Upper School students launch spring semester with Spring Term, focusing on discipleship and service while exponentially broadening their perspectives and biblical worldview. Spring Term is a chance for our students to go out into the world and fulfill the last commandment of Jesus to “make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19), with trips spanning the globe --  from Haiti to Hawaii, Belize to The Bahamas, Kenya to Costa Rica, and many more!

Special Student Life Events

Circle of Prayer, Spiritual Emphasis Week & More



The Student Life experience at NCCS includes several foundational annual events, during which our student body comes together to worship, pray and grow closer to the Lord, side by side. These spiritual milestone moments include Circle of Prayer every fall, Spiritual Emphasis Week every winter, Veterans Day Chapel, Grandparents Days, school-wide Christmas Chapels, Lower School Serve It Up!, and special times of worship. These events galvanize our community onward in our walk with Christ, proving that Matthew 18:20 is true: Where two or more are gathered in His name, there He is, indeed.
