I chose NWC for my children because the teachers all truly love the students and I KNOW that they pray for them each day. Combined with the excellent academics and incorporating the Bible through ALL subjects, NWC is a great Christian School.

We are big fans of Northwest Christian! My husband and three of our children are graduates. Another child is enjoying being part of the middle school in their brand-new building in Colbert. God is honored, academic standards are high, and the faculty and staff love their students. They also have an excellent fine arts program as well as highly successful sports teams. If you are looking for a school for your students preschool - 12th grade, or even to team up with you as you homeschool, look no further!
