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!

Honor Band Selections

Four of our Jr. High students were selected to attend the Molalla Middle School Honor Band this month. This experience brought a days worth of intense rehearsals under the direction of Mr. Travis Freshner. Mr. Freshener is a distinguished local composer and arranger who teaches at St. Helens Middle School.


At the end of the day, this group of 55 musicians put on a high quality performance which was fantastic. We are proud of them for participating in this event and look forward to many more opportunities for our NCCS Band community!
