"Northumberland Christian School stands head and shoulders above other schools of its kind.  Committed to both academic achievement and moral formation, NCS realizes that an excellent, biblically-informed education need not choose between the head and matters of the heart."

Academics
One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts.  They will tell of the power of your awesome works, and I will proclaim your great deeds.
- Psalm 145:4,6

Education is exciting! God has called us to seek to pass on to the next generation the things which God has taught us about Himself and His deeds. That's what N.C.S. is all about. We serve a great God, and we want to help young people learn to see all of life from His perspective. We long for them not only to learn but also to delight in who God is and in all the wonders He has done and continues to do. We believe that this delight in learning about God and His world is central to equipping them to be all that God wants them to be.

We believe that students need an education which has God at its very center, and we believe that students need to be challenged and stimulated to learn as much as they can in all of the basic disciplines. God has made each one of us with different strengths and weaknesses, but we have always encouraged our students to learn as much as they can in Bible, history, science, literature, language, math, and the arts. We believe the best preparation we can give our students for life is a broad background in which they have pursued as much understanding in each of these areas as they can.

Some have termed this a "liberal arts" approach to education. Just as most liberal arts colleges require students to take some courses in each major discipline and not just in their major field, so we believe that this broad approach through elementary and secondary school will best equip students to be ready to serve in whatever area God calls them. Indeed, the breadth of exposure will help them to be able to identify their strengths and interests, as well as give them an appreciation for other areas to which they are not as naturally inclined. We also believe this broad education helps to sharpen their understanding of God's world and challenges them to develop strong character which delights in God and His view of the world.

Our approach to academics is summarized by the school's mission statement: Northumberland Christian School was founded in 1972 to provide a God-centered education that stimulates in the students a passion for excellence in learning, service, and worship.
