His Plan | Our Time US Building
The His Plan | Our Time (HP|OT) capital campaign was launched to secure funds for a much-needed designated Upper School building. Thanks to the generosity of our NCCS friends and families, in 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, scrolls saws, sewing and textile construction machines, and more.
"Essentially, if you can build it, break it, or blow it up, it will happen in our makerspace and robotics 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.
This new building greatly impacts our Upper School students, while also freeing up space for exciting renovations in our main building for our Lower and Middle Schools!
