North County Christian School is committed to... 

 

helping students achieve academic excellence in all disciplines and to providing students with the instruction and guidance they need to realize their own potential.

 

Therefore, NCCS is fully accredited by the WESTERN ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES (WASC). The Visiting Team report found the school successfully preparing students for college entrance with high levels of achievement. The report is available for viewing in the school office for your review if you desire.

 

Accreditation is a process, not a stamp of approval. So what is really important is that NCCS is committed to on-going growth and improvement. The visiting committee seemed very positive about our school and confident that NCCS will continue to provide wonderful educational opportunities consistent with its GOALS FOR GRADUATES.

Small Classes Promote Caring & Guidance.  North County Christian Junior High School provides a safe and challenging atmosphere for grades six through eight. Students meet their homeroom teacher in seventh grade and continue with that homeroom teacher through graduation. As a result every student in the class has knowledgeable and personal guidance and encouragement at this crucial time of life - someone who cares and will be there. Our goal is for students to achieve their highest potential mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

 

Challenging Academics. A strong focus is placed on academics with emphasis given to the core subjects of Bible, English, mathematics, history, and science.
