A private Christian middle school can be a wonderful blessing for parents and children during this crucial time in a young person’s development.
Understanding the Adolescent
The often “tumultuous” years of adolescence need teachers of strength, stability, flexibility, and a keen sense of humor. The middle school staff members are all of these and more. As they manage their instructional environments with great expertise, their sensitivity to spiritual, social and emotional needs of middle-level students provides many teachable moments in addition to the academic curriculum. A Christian middle school experience can preserve the values instilled by families during a time of tremendous peer pressure.
NCS is blessed to have a middle school faculty who love their students and are devoted to their “whole” development. Academic competitions, fine arts opportunities, and numerous interscholastic athletic programs give productive outlets to the abundant energy of the middle school students.
High School Preparation
Students are prepared for a broad and diverse high school offering of courses in English, math, science, computer, Bible, and foreign language. The “hidden curriculum” of building accountability, integrity and perseverance is an important focus of the middle school years at Northland Christian School.
