Who We Are

Nebraska Christian Schools (NCS) is a K-12, non-denominational, private, Christian school. Our students represent a variety of denominations, and they are taught a biblically integrated, rigorous college prep curriculum. All students attend Bible class each day and chapel once a week. Dorms are available for high school students.

NCS is accredited by the Nebraska Department of Education and is an ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) member school. NCS is also a member of the Nebraska School Activities Association and the Goldenrod Conference. NCS admits students irrespective of race, color, and national or ethnic origin.

NCS is located on a 27-acre campus one mile outside of the city limits of Central City, Nebraska (population 2,900), 22 miles east of Grand Island, Nebraska (population 49,000), and 110 miles west of Omaha, Nebraska (population 415,000).


Statement of Faith

The following, together with other Christian principles of doctrine and practice, shall be the basis of the faith and doctrine of Nebraska Christian Schools.

• We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

• We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

• We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to power and glory.

• We believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.

• We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

• We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

• We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

• We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Core Values

Practices that guide us toward fulfilling our vision:

Nebraska Christian Schools is a place of SERVICE. We aspire to be Service Minded, Exalting of Christ, and Relationally Focused. We want our students and staff to hold a Vibrant Disposition, to embrace Innovative Practices, and take a Collaborative Approach. When our students, staff, and stakeholders carry out these values and keep Christ at the center, it puts Nebraska Christian on a path of Excellence to the glory of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Service Minded

The conviction of our school leadership is that the students and staff that we lead do not exist to serve us, but, rather, we are called to serve and lay our lives down for others. By following the example of Jesus, we are devoted to finding tangible ways to love and serve one another, as well as our neighbors. We hope that all parts of Christ’s body see their role in serving in this same way.

Exalting Christ

In all things, there is one centerpiece – that is to glorify our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Whether we are in the classroom, on the ball field, or in the theater, we hope and pray that our actions can bring glory to God.

Relationally Focused

As we work with fellow staff, students, and families along the way, we will try to put ourselves in their shoes, always assuming that they have positive intentions, putting them before ourselves, and treating them with love and respect.

Vibrant Disposition

We expect that all of our students and staff are in line with a calling to be a part of the Nebraska Christian family. Therefore, it is also the expectation that we should be authentic, but that we should remember that we are blessed to be here. Our energy and attitude should reflect our gratitude for being a part of this mission.

Innovative Practices

The world is changing around us. As a school, it is our job to prepare our students in the most modern skills and practices while never removing or compromising our Biblical worldview.

Collaborative Approach

In our 21st century world, it is becoming increasingly necessary for people to work together collaboratively. By embracing this, we will improve our school while helping our students hone this important skill.


It is not wrong for one to pursue excellence unless to do so is for one’s own glory. As we pursue excellence here at NC, we strive to do it for an audience of one – our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
