- North Cobb Christian School is an independent, interdenominational Christian school serving grades K3 through 12. NCCS was founded by four families in 1983 and currently ranks as one of the largest private schools in the Atlanta area. NCCS believes each student has unique gifts and abilities endowed by God and welcomes the opportunity to help students explore, expand, and enjoy the calling of God on their lives. North Cobb Christian School offers a college preparatory program, a distinguished scholar program, Honors Classes, and Advanced Placement Classes. Additionally, for those students who have clearly defined where their talents lie and how to best use those gifts to serve the Lord, we have developed our Academy Program.

This school is phenomenal. Our three students (1st, 4th, 7th) are thriving. The teachers and coaches at NCCS truly care about the kids, and there's a schoolwide emphasis on guiding students to discover their own unique genius and God-given gifts. From an array of arts opportunities to over 50 athletic teams, there's something for every child — and each child feels valued here. Just a beautiful place for students to grow and thrive!

All four of my children are enrolled here. While private school is expensive, I truly feel like we can't afford NOT to send our kids here. These teachers are so genuine and passionate about teaching and laying a foundation of God's love. My children are truly seen - they feel immensely loved and always encouraged. The teachers go above and beyond and use their words to edify and uplift. They learn Bible verses weekly and my children come home singing songs about God's love for them. Todd Clingman, the school headmaster is one of the most humble human beings I have ever met. He is genuine, hard working and truly has a deep love for the Lord and a passion for helping kids know their true identity in Christ. I cannot speak more highly of this school, what they stand for and their passion to spread the gospel. We are so incredibly grateful to call NCCS our home.

This is our 3rd year at NCCS. We have been very pleased. The teachers are fully invested in the kids and there is a tremendous prayer cover. The atmosphere has been great both spiritually and socially!

We have been so happy to be part of the NCCS family! My daughter started attending NCCS as a freshman in high school. She was welcomed by students and faculty alike and has loved every minute! She has participated in sports, chorus, as well as the visual arts program. She has been challenged academically and feels very prepared for college next year. Not only that, but she grown so much spiritually with faculty who serve as wonderful role models. Attending North Cobb Christian was one of the best choices we have made as parents.

My son went to a different private kindergarten before enrolling at North Cobb Christian School for first grade. He came into NCCS with limited phonics skills and very poor previous literacy instruction. His first grade teacher at NCCS immediately intervened, providing my son with extra support to get him up to par. He also began extra tutoring with a NCCS kindergarten teacher, and by Christmas, his reading skills experienced an impressive jump. He ended first grade on grade level with his reading ability, and we are forever grateful. The Lower School curriculum at NCCS is very strong in phonics, reading and writing. My son has continued on to become a very strong reader, and we accredit it to his amazing transition to North Cobb Christian School.

I have two kids here, both in the preschool program. We have been very pleased with how carefully the school focuses on the individual child, listening to our concerns, working carefully with our kids, and furthermore, placing them in a position to be highly, highly competitive from the earliest age without placing crazy pressure on the little guys. I want my kids in this school until they're seniors in high school, but it is also a very good feeling to know that if they left after the preschool program, they would be working far in advance of their peers in any of the other schools in Cobb County. If you want a school that will love your child, specifically and with clear eyes, and support you in your efforts to create the best life for your child academically and socially, then NCCS is certainly a wonderful pre-K option and the best one by far in Cobb County.

What a treasure we have in this school and the faculty, staff, and even fellow parents! It's just something you FEEL when you walk through the doors or anywhere on campus! We have been here for 7 years and now have two children attending. In comparing other schools online in VALUE, NCCS has them all beat! But that's just numbers - what you will experience from the people here is truly the best part of it all and something you won't be able to measure until you're here! If you can't make one of the Open house dates, come to a sporting event, graduation, or arts performance to catch a glimpse of what we get to be part of here every day.

NCCS is such a treasure to our family. We have three kids at the school and this is our 9th year at the school. It is truly a one-of-a-kind community and you immediately feel like part of the family. The partnership and investment these amazing teachers make in our kids for seven hours each day has made a tremendous impact on the young adults they are becoming. NCCS Offers all of the academics, activities and sports like a much bigger school but has the intimate feeling of a smaller school where each and every student is pushed to their limit of performance.

I truly can't say enough about North Cobb Christian School! We've had our children enrolled at NCCS since we moved to Georgia in 2014. We could have lived anywhere in the Atlanta area, but chose Kennesaw specifically because of our initial impression of this school. Since then, our love for it has only grown deeper. We appreciate the balanced curriculum and program offerings that enable our kids to thrive in academics, athletics and the arts. But beyond that, it's the sense of faith and family that make NCCS so special. We feel it every time we step foot on campus, and it applies to Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School - we have a child in each. I credit the leadership, faculty and staff for creating such an affirming environment. They make each member of our family feel loved and cared for. We couldn't be happier with our decision or recommend NCCS any higher.

North Cobb Christian School is the best kept secret in Kennesaw. It has a wonderfully diverse student population and offers many outstanding ammenities. It uses a combination of curriculum that offer the students advanced academic in all grade levels. Students have an array of extracurriculuar activites ranging from sports to music. What I love the most is that my child can learn in an environment where the students and faculty can share Christian beliefs and everyone is treated with common courtesy and respect. The only drawback for me is that my child does not see many educators who are the same color as she is, that would not only be encouraging, but add another plus to the list.

And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
