Update: Campus Improvement Project
During Spring Break there was major renovation work done in the gym breezeway and music building at the school, this included replacing siding, gutters, windows, lighting and paint, as well as installation of new secure entry doors at the gym breezeway!
We need to raise an additional $100,000 to complete similar renovations of all our buildings. If you are able to give to the Campus Improvement Project, please use the QR code below, or checks/cash are also accepted through our office. We also welcome any efforts to share this need with others in your circle of influence. Questions or inquiries should be directed to Sherri James.
Thank you to those who have already given to this significant project. You are making a difference to the future of NCCS and its mission!
