From four families nearly four decades ago to 900-plus students on our 50-acre campus today, the story of North Cobb Christian School is one of growth, favor, and downright miracles as God has paved the way for His school to flourish.
North Cobb Christian School was chartered by four families seeking a biblically based, academically excellent education for their children.
10 acres of land was purchased near the borderline of Acworth and Kennesaw, and construction began. By February 1989, the building was complete!
Housed within Grace Brethren Church in Marietta, NCCS received its official nonprofit status, elected a Board of Directors, and joined the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
Enrollment exploded in 1995 at 300 students, revealing a critical need for more space.
NCCS kicked off a capital campaign to finance an addition that added 30 classrooms, a gymnasium, science lab, media center, two cafeterias and office space.
The school opened its doors to high school students, adding one grade each year.
First Eighth-Grade Class
NCCS’s first eighth-grade class graduated! Enrollment continued to climb.
First Senior Class
The first senior class of NCCS graduated, with six graduates and a total school enrollment of 910.
Because of the Lord’s rich blessings, miraculous contributions, and many generous donations, the new addition was completed!
We moved up to AAA competition and ranked as the eighth largest private school in Metro Atlanta.
Our first year with the Georgia Independent School Association (GISA), NCCS was named overall champion in the 4AA region for competition in athletics and fine arts.
Additional property, along with a football program, was added! The success of NCCS athletic programs led to a jump to the Georgia High School Association.
Head of School Todd Clingman joined the NCCS family. The Academies were launched in the Upper School, allowing students to “major” in a field of study that aligns with their collegiate and career plans, including The Academy of Business; The Academy of Counseling, Ministry and Education; The Academy of the Arts; The STEM Academy; and Academy of Exercise and Sport Science.
Science labs, classrooms, and band and orchestra rooms were added. Additionally, space was renovated for the Upper School Student Life Center, and a Field House was completed for athletics and PE classes.
A Campus Master Plan was launched, adding the Fine Arts Building, Upper School building with math and science labs, the athletic stadium, expanded dining areas, and facility upgrades.
NCCS continued to expand, holding ribbon cuttings for a beautiful tennis complex, practice field, and a new entrance on Eagle Drive.
Arts + Acreage
Property was acquired, expanding our campus from 16 acres to over 40. Adjacent former church property was transformed into our state-of-the-art Fine Arts Building.
His Plan|Our Time
The His Plan|Our Time Capital Campaign was launched, planning for the addition of a designated Upper School building, which will add 26 classrooms, including a STEM Center and Makerspace, student collaborative areas, and much-needed parking. We plan to break ground in spring 2020 or before!
