Tel: (973)383-9713
Grades: PK-8 | 178 students
Northwest Christian School educates children for a life of obedience to their calling in this world as image-bearers of God.
This calling is to know God's Word and His creation, to consecrate the whole of human life to God, to love their fellowman, and to be stewards in their God-given tasks.
NCS will be a discipleship school where the students truly have a worldview that in based on the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the authority of the Scriptures.
This Christian perspective of life will be fostered and nurtured by godly, Spirit filled teachers and staff members who consistently and actively integrate the person of God and His Word into the curriculum and all of life at Northwest Christian School.
The students of NCS, by the grace of God, will see life through God's eyes and will become doers of the Word so they will impact their world for the glory of Christ and the benefit of people in their sphere of influence.
Our teachers, staff members and administrators will create a hunger and a thirst in our students to truly live a Christ centered life.
Our students will want to be like our staff because of our love, attitude and enthusiasm as we model a Christ like life.
It is absolutely imperative that our staff lives out the Word of God that we speak with our lips to our children.
I want our children to have a godly integrity to the extent that they serve God when no one is looking.
I want NCS to have a Christian witness that is unparalleled in the Northern New Jersey area.
