Hear From The Parents

“It’s like a giant family here. They can play with kids from all different grades and not feel left out. They don’t feel like they’re out of place. I am more confident in my decision than ever. The longer they are here, the more I know it was the right decision because of the confidence that they have gotten from this school, the comfort level they feel being able to talk openly about their faith.”

-Larissa Caulfield

NCS Parent

“We really wanted to put our daughter in an environment where she could be nurtured and be able to grow. What I see is the teachers fostering their relationships and meeting the needs of the children to have them flourish. Eight years later… we have found that the school has fostered academics, as well as a relationship with people and with God."

-Jeremy Holden

NCS Parent

“We have learned...they (our children) have a clear identity of who they are, their identity in Christ, and that helps them to step out into the world, knowing who they are and comfortable in who they are.”

-Janet Shutt
