“Adults essentially carry out the beliefs they embraced when they were young.” – George Barna, educational researcher
So, why does Christian education matter in the elementary and middle school years? Because research shows that spiritual beliefs, moral foundations, and a biblical (or non-biblical) worldview are largely in place by age 9 to 13. This is why we do what we do at NCCS. This is why we integrate biblical truth starting at age 3 across all subjects, on the stage, on our fields and courts and hallways.
We are so thoroughly committed to molding North Cobb Christian School on these truths — modeling them for our students and imparting them day in and day out — because we are training up children in the way they should go, so when they are old they shall not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6)
