Welcome to Nittany Christian! We are sure that as you visit our website, you will find interesting facts about our School that may not match your idea of what a "typical" classical Christian school is like.
Our priority is to serve the Lord while allowing kids to be kids, all in an environment conducive to learning.
The students who walk through our front door on a typical morning are smiling and enthusiastic, ready to start another day, loving to learn and learning to love! We have high academic standards that are met through traditional classrooms that take a nontraditional approach to learning.
Yes, we use textbooks, but they are not the focus of our teaching methods.
The teachers allow the students to explore topics, use a hands-on approach to learning, and facilitate activities that motivate students to want to know more.
Christ is the center of our curriculum and is integrated into every aspect of the School day.
Bible is taught daily and there are weekly chapels.
The Great Commission is emphasized through a special "Missions Month" and other projects.
Besides reading, writing, and arithmetic, students are given an opportunity to explore music, art, physical education, health, library resources, technology, and a variety of extracurricular activities.
