Meet North Cobb Christian School:


Have you ever wondered if there’s a better way to do school? A way to educate that puts children’s cognitive, emotional, social, and spiritual needs at the forefront? A way that challenges students academically, fosters them spiritually, and guides them to discover their God-given purpose and abilities? Well, almost four decades ago, in 1983, four families with a vision for Christian education wondered the same thing — and North Cobb Christian School was born. North Cobb Christian School is one of growth, favor, and downright miracles as God has paved the way for His school to flourish. 

After renting space from Grace Brethren Church for three years, sixteen acres were secured in northwest Cobb County and a permanent facility was constructed. NCCS experienced phenomenal growth in the mid-1990s and the facility was expanded to include a gymnasium, laboratories, a media center, and fifty-four classrooms.

Located in Kennesaw, Georgia, NCCS combines academic excellence with an authentic Christian education for students in preschool K3 through 12th grade, with the goal of helping children grow into their full potential in Christ. This is school… the way it should be.
