Upper School (Grades 9 - 12)
An academically challenging and meaningful high school experience can put your student on a trajectory of lifelong success. This is an exciting time that is filled with many milestones and much future planning. At North Cobb Christian School, a rigorous curriculum, as well as enriching activities, help students discover and pursue who God created them to be. As a result, they go on to the nation's top colleges and careers that allow them to truly impact the world.
A Tailored Curriculum
The academic curriculum at North Cobb Christian School was designed to provide a solid foundation across core subject areas while giving students the opportunity to tailor their education to reach their goals. Our high schoolers take responsibility for their education, challenging themselves with opportunities like Advanced Placement and Honors Classes, Dual Enrollment on our NCCS campus in partnership with Shorter University and at Kennesaw State University, a Distinguished Scholars Program, and Online Courses. A broad range of electives in today’s leading fields help students get hands-on training in areas such as computer science, graphics arts, foreign language, journalism, marketing, business, healthcare science, music, arts, athletic training, and more.
Exceptional College Prep
Conversations about college prep begin long before high school at North Cobb, but grades 9-12 are years of proactive and intentional planning. Our College Guidance Department serves as an active partner to students and their families as they plan for every aspect of the college admissions process — from entrance testing to financial aid and scholarships. All families are given access to a user-friendly, web-based college planning program to guide college and career choices throughout the upper school years. Teachers continually mentor their students in this area, keeping future planning at the forefront of their minds. Students are encouraged to set goals early and supported as they create a plan to reach them.
Enriching Student Activities
There is no shortage of things to get involved in at North Cobb Christian School. Many upper school students stay active in one or more of our 53 sports. Competitive varsity teams have won many championships and provided opportunities for students to develop a strong appreciation for teamwork. A thriving arts program including music, performing arts, and visual arts activities develops lifelong talents while allowing students to glorify God. Finally, a wide variety of interest-based clubs, organizations, and community service teams provide a well-rounded education.
Strong Spiritual Development
We don’t just want our students to be prepared for college — we want them to be prepared for the world. This involves the continual development of a Biblical worldview. At North Cobb Christian School, we accomplish this through integrating God’s truth across every class, every activity, and every initiative. Students grow to understand how God’s word is living and relevant in their lives. Additionally, they have a plethora of opportunities to be the hands and feet of Jesus through both local ministry and life-changing mission trips.
