Integrating Biblical Truth

NWC_HS_065We teach the Word of God in all curriculum and actively encourage students to pursue a relationship with Jesus. Bible classes are interactive and probing. Weekly chapels focus on practical application and joyful worship.

Encouraging Critical Thinking

Reading comprehension is the cornerstone of critical thinking. Students are taught to critically evaluate and articulate effectively in both written word and speech.

Honoring Our Nation’s History

Our Nation’s founding documents reflect Judeo-Christian values and honor our Creator. The freedoms we hold dear were hard fought and won. Although imperfect, we love and pray for our country and its leaders.

Providing Accountability

Personal responsibility is modeled and expected; grace and truth walk hand-in-hand. Thoughtful guidelines and involved teachers, staff, and coaches encourage individual expression that is modest and actions that are honoring to others.

Mentoring the Heart

Our halls are filled with joy and laughter. Students develop deep relationships with teachers and coaches who daily invest in their lives. Prayer happens. Hearts are transformed. God is glorified.
