School Notes

  • Norfolk Christian Schools offers a complete college-preparatory program that is grounded in a distinctly Biblical worldview.  Emphases on both rigor and depth of understanding create exceptional thinkers, while differentiated instruction allows students to excel at the pace and style most efficient for them.  Our foundational philosophy is to begin with knowledge then guide students to a critical understanding of how that knowledge impacts the world around them, how it should encourage the exploration of new ideas, and most importantly, how it relates back to the Truth of God`s Word. 
  • Norfolk Christian students attend a variety of notable colleges and universities, including over the last five years: Yale, Dartmouth, Cornell, University of Virginia, Savannah College of Art and Design, Notre Dame, U. S. Naval Academy, the College of William & Mary, University of North Carolina, and a multitude of others.
