Education, when viewed as the process of developing citizens for God’s kingdom, is certainly an eternal investment. Our vision statement, “touching lives for eternity,” encapsulates what we strive to focus on as we follow the direction of God in our daily endeavors and long-range planning. We are committed to providing a full dimensional educational experience, which includes the development of the whole child. The spiritual and intellectual growth of each student is emphasized at NCS. Our desire is for each student to achieve his or her fullest potential.

Our English program incorporates systematically taught grammar lessons which are applied in writing assignments. Word study and vocabulary are directly taught to enhance writing and speaking. Authentic editing using student’s coursework brings excitement and interest to this subject area.
