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


One of the greatest privileges of being a student at NCCS is the opportunity to gather as a school for chapel each week. From our youngest K3 students to our seniors, everyone participates in worship and authentic instruction designed to help them grow in Christ.

Fall Retreat

5th - 12th Grade Annually 


At the beginning of each school year, NCCS takes all Middle and Upper School students on a special fall retreat, providing an unparalleled opportunity for them to grow closer to each other and to the Lord. Away from the normal pressures of school and life, students are given a firm foundation of faith and friendship.

Community Service

K3 - 12th grade throughout the year


At NCCS, community service is one of our core values. Our desire is to reach students with the good news of Jesus Christ and to help them become the hands and feet of Christ as they serve others in His name.

Throughout the year, students participate in many projects and events designed to mold them into believers who are “doers of the word,” learning to love others well (James 1:22).

Spring Term

Annually 5th - 12th grade


Spring Term for NCCS Upper and Middle School students is a special time that provides real-world opportunities for 5th through 12th graders to take what they have learned in the classroom and in chapels and apply it throughout the world.

From Haiti to Hawaii and everywhere in between, these experiences encompass overseas mission trips, cultural immersions, service projects, academic pursuits, arts explorations and 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.
