2019/20 School Verse

John‬ ‭3:21

But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

"Spread Joy and Run Like Crazy" at THE JOG-A-THON!

This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

The NCCS annual schoolwide, Jog-A-Thon will take place on Friday, October 4th, 11:30am - 3:15pm. This "fun" fundraiser will support NCCS general fund and will take place on our own field. This is one of the greatest fundraisers of the year, with a goal to raise $8000 (or more!). We are thrilled to have Kona Ice as our event sponsor this year. Every student who participates will get a FREE Kona Ice treat after the event.

This schoolwide event will not only raise funds for our school, it will encourage healthy activity and a sense of community in the lives of our students!


Parents are welcome to come and cheer on the students as they run. We are also in need of volunteers to help in one of the many areas of this event. Please sign up HERE to volunteer to work on the day of the event.

International Student Host Families

Have you ever thought about opening your home and hosting a student from another country? We have a short term opportunity in January, when 10 high school students from our Christian sister school in Korea will visit NCCS during an educational experience trip. The students will arrive on January 12 and need a host home through January 31. During this visit, along with gaining insight of American culture through the homestay, the students will attend 9 days of school at NCCS, tour local businesses, and participate in planned activities with their school. There is a housing stipend ($450) provided to cover expenses of hosting a student. If you are interested in hosting and want to complete the application, or have questions, please contact Emily Clark, Business Manager at or call at extension 202.

Employment Opportunity: PM EDP

We have an open position for PM EDP assistant staff. The hours are 2:30-4:30 PM. For an application and questions, please contact Emily Clark, Business Manager at or call at extension 202.
