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.

School Reviews

5  5/9/2018
I am an alumna who now has a high schooler as well as a 2017 graduate. After my own experience of all 12 years in the family of Norfolk Christian, I knew I wanted my own kids to come here and it has been the best decision I could have made for them. My oldest got into all 4 colleges he applied to as a senior and attended his first choice school. He did so having teachers who loved and invested in him while he was with them and regularly keep up with him now that he is gone. My youngest is a junior with completely different skills and interests and she too could not be happier. From an athlete to an artist, they have both thrived at NCS. I love, love, love it here and am so thankful for the wonderful people God put in my children's lives.
