North Cobb Christian School is an independent, college preparatory school with a Christian based environment. It is located in Kennesaw, Georgia. It houses children from K3 through twelfth grade. The school offers a variety of Honors and AP classes, clubs, and a variety of middle school, junior varsity and varsity sports. In addition to academic requirements mandated by the school board, a minimum of 28 hours of community service is required to graduate from North Cobb Christian School.
North Cobb Christian was founded in 1983, when four families wanted a Christian educational environment. They put the plans together and borrowed the building from the previous church. 36 children made up the grades from Kindergarten through third. The founders had not planned on it growing so fast, so over the next five years, a grade was added each year until the school reached eighth grade. The High school was not in the works until about the mid-1990s, when an enormous growth appeared over the entire campus. New buildings were constructed including: a gymnasium, media center, more classrooms, and computer labs. High school classes began the fall of 1998.
North Cobb Christian has a Biblically based curriculum that includes many Honors and AP classes. NCCS offers a program known as Directed Studies. This is a program that all students at NCCS are offered. The Directed Studies consist of Educational Therapy, Tutoring, and Mentoring. Educational therapy is available for students with a diagnosed processing weakness. Tutoring is available for students who have gaps in achievement in subjects such as Reading, Math and Language Arts. Mentoring is available for secondary students who struggle to keep pace with the program and need additional help to organize and manage school life."
North Cobb Christian School is home to 13 varsity teams, several junior varsity teams, and 16 middle school teams. Many of the teams give back to the community by working in several community service projects around town throughout the entire year. Throughout all of the athletes, each team goes out on the court or field to glorify and represent God throughout the game. Many of NCCS athletes have participated and brought back State Championships trophies and National Championships trophies. The sports included from middle school to high school include: Basketball, Football, Baseball, Cheerleading, Golf, Tennis, Cross Country, Soccer, Swimming, Track, Volleyball, and Softball.
