After School Enrichment Program (E.C.C.)

In keeping with NWCS’s high standard of Academic Excellence, we offer more for your 1st through 8th grade student(s) with our After School Enrichment Classes and Clubs (E.C.C.).

 

What is Northwest Christian Schools’ Enrichment program?
E.C.C. stands for Enrichment Classes and Clubs. NWCS’s Enrichment program is a self-funded program that offers a collection of different weekly after school Classes and Clubs throughout the school year.

What is the goal of the Enrichment Program?
The goal of the Enrichment program is to provide continuing opportunity for students to learn new and exciting things, exploring areas such as creative arts, science/technology and life skills; while discovering their God given gifts, talents and passions. The Enrichment Classes and Clubs provide an excellent environment where our students can continue to discover who they are as they explore the world around them, helping them grow into the person God has created them to be.
Types of enrichment classes offered are chess, baking, worship & dance, extreme science, music and much more.  Classes vary from year to year as we strive to provide a dynamic class schedule for our students.

Who may participate in the Enrichment Program?
Any current NWCS student first grade through middle school may participate in the Enrichment Program. Current students in the NWCS Homeschool program of the required grade levels may also participate.

Who teaches the Enrichment Classes and Clubs?
Enrichment Classes and Clubs are taught by a variety of individuals throughout the school year. Our Enrichment Program teachers are current educators, skilled professionals from the community, and passionate parents and students who have a heart for kids coupled with a desire to share their knowledge and skills with the next generation.
Each of our teachers have gone through an interviewing process, signed NWCS’s Statement of Faith, and have passed a Washington State Background Check prior to teaching a class.
Our teachers are passionate about helping students discover God’s presence, creativity, and handiwork in each class. They desire to not only teach an interesting subject or skill but to mentor our students as they pursue their relationship with the Lord and all He has for them in their daily lives. Our Enrichment Program teachers continue NWCS’s pursuit of encouraging our students to live for God’s glory as they live out the Gospel.
