Lower School Summer Learning
Lower School Summer Learning
Our students at NCCS engage in meaningful summer assignments and learning opportunities meant to challenge their minds, cultivate their hearts and prepare them for the year ahead.
This season, we’re also excited to welcome Jill Howell as our new Lower School Administrative Assistant. Jill is a NCCS parent of two children in Lower School. She has a heart and passion for Christian education. Jill brings organization, experience, energy and lots of smiles to our office. If you have any questions or need help this summer, please feel free to email Jill!

RISE for 2020-2021
The LS academically gifted enrichment program for NCCS is called RISE. The pull-out RISE gifted program meets ninety minutes each week during the school day and will serve qualifying students in grades second through fourth. Student activities are characterized by Research, Investigation, Study, and Exploration. They include life applicable devotions, and Brain Challenges and unit activities that promote hands-on critical thinking and intellectual curiosity.
Due to the nontraditional, at-home learning that has taken place in response to COVID-19, you may have seen patterns of repeated problem solving and critical thinking in your rising 2nd-4th grader. In the past, students received Cognitive Testing in April as part of our standardized testing week. These results help to determine eligibility for RISE.
With no formal testing in April due to COVID-19, we are opening three dates in July for interested students to take a cognitive test at North Cobb Christian to determine if he/she qualifies for the RISE Gifted Program. If your child participated in RISE last year, he/she automatically qualifies to return. To learn more about RISE click here.
SPEECH, LANGUAGE, AND HEARING SCREENINGS
Do you have questions or concerns about your child’s communication skills? If so, we can help! North Cobb Christian School will be offering speech, language, and hearing screenings, evaluations, and services for the 2020-2021 year in partnership with Andrea Davis, M.Ed, CCC-SLP, Owner of Speech-Life, LLC. These evaluations & services will begin the second week of school of Fall 2020. For more information, please feel free to contact Mrs. Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
