Spring Term

 

Spring Term is a cornerstone of the North Cobb Christian School experience and one of the many elements that makes NCCS so much more than just another school. This is where true life change happens — where our students are invested into deeply … and then guided to invest into others.

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.

“During Spring Term, my eyes were opened to the world. From bonding with my classmates to serving others in remote areas of the globe, Spring Term was a life-changing experience that shaped who I am today.” NCCS Alumni

Xtreme Men | NCCS Spring Term 2021

Xtreme Men opened its Tuesday session pondering this pericope to focus on responsibility, today’s theme principle (and one of NCCS’s core values). It’s an odd way to reward faithfulness: with more responsibility. “You did a good job,” the master says. “Here’s your reward: more work.” How is giving more responsibility to a faithful person a reward?...

Puerto Rico | Spring Term 2021

Just when we thought everyone would be quick to go to bed last night after a long day of work ... some of them got their second wind and kept us entertained for awhile last night!  Others called it a night early last night, and it was easy to tell the difference between the groups at the wakeup call this morning.  They have a fun rule with SEND Relief when it comes to mealtimes....

Nashville | NCCS Spring Term 2021

We also had the privilege of visiting RCA Studio B: the most famous and influential recording studio in the city. Our group sat in the same studio where hundreds of hits across multiple genres were brainstormed and recorded. Perhaps one of the coolest pieces of history we encountered there was the grand piano that “the King” himself, Elvis Presley....

Marvel and Missions | NCCS Spring Term 2021

The NCCS Spring Term 2021 Marvel & Missions team started off Day 2 with a devotional from NCCS Senior Noah Gardner on seeing the characteristics of Jesus and Satan in today's movie, Avengers - Age of Ultron. Lucas Ayers, after seeing the movie, said "the devotion allowed him to see the film in a different way ... not just good guys and bad guys fighting but on a higher moral level of doing what is right."...

Gulf Coast Hurricane Relief | NCCS Spring Term 2021

What a day! The NCCS Gulf Coast Hurricane Relief team left out early in frigid temperatures and arrived to a warm (very warm) welcome by Pensacola Beach! After an early dinner at Crab's, we settled in quite nicely to our new homes for the week. The houses are so comfortable, and we are truly grateful!....

Florida STEM | NCCS Spring Term 2021

One thing we talked about before leaving was really opening our hearts to let Jesus shine through us and reveal new things to us, and at the Kennedy Center, I really saw how truly creative and intelligent our God is. The way that He created each galaxy, solar system, planet, and asteroid was exactly designed for His purpose, and it is so evident when you are learning about space....

Dominican Republic | NCCS Spring Term 2021

We woke up early this morning to head out for the day after breakfast. Once we arrived at the church, we divided into groups. One group stayed back and did construction, while the other groups did SMT: Strategic Ministry Time, where we go out to minister to families within the villages and take special note of their situations....

We woke up early to the beauty of the Smoky Mountains and started the day with a group devotional.

Then, we drove to the Biltmore Estate, where we enjoyed a very eventful biking excursion around the Biltmore grounds and French Broad River! Students enjoyed saying “hello” to the cows, sheep, goats and chickens on the property....
