NCCS Mission Statement

North Clackamas Christian School partners with Christian parents in providing our students with a biblically based education that pursues excellence in spiritual, academic, artistic, and athletic programs, training them to serve Christ daily.”

School Verse for 2021-22

Galatians 5:22-26...the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

Such a Blessing to be at NCCS!

Basketball Season Update

The NCCS Girl's Varsity Basketball team finished the regular season 3rd in district, allowing them to compete in the first round of state playoffs. They did not proceed any further, but can be very proud of all the growth and success they had this year as a young and developing team. Congratulations Lady Saints!


The NCCS Boy's Varsity Basketball team finished the regular season 2nd in district, allowing them to compete in state playoffs. They won their first game (see article below), which allowed them to proceed in the playoffs. However, that game did not bring a win. The team had a fantastic season and we are very proud of them!


Our JV and Junior High teams had an outstanding seasons as well. Thank you to all who came out to cheer on our teams. Basketball is going strong at NCCS and the future looks bright!

Parent Reminders

  • A parent must sign in and sign out their child when the student is leaving/arriving outside of normal school hours.
  • Be cautious of morning and afternoon driveway lanes when dropping off and picking up students. We are concerned about speed and cars not staying in the designated lanes.
  • Have your student adhere to the school dress code on a daily basis.
  • Secondary students should not use their cell phones during class times, including receiving messages from a parent. Please be sure to have your child come to the office if they are not well, where they will be cared for and a parent contacted should they need to be picked up.
