Philosophy of Education

NC adopts an historic, Christian view of life as presented in the Bible. The essence of this view is that life should be God-centered and glorifying to Him, since He, being the sovereign and holy God, created, owns, and sustains everything through His Son, Jesus Christ. In His holiness and perfection, God desires a relationship with His creation, especially mankind.

Man chose to reject this relationship. Each individual is, by nature and choice, a sinner who can never in himself glorify and know God. Out of His immense love, God provided a way to redeem and regenerate mankind, restoring man to a right relationship with Himself. This is accomplished as an individual places his faith and trust in the saving work that Jesus Christ did for all on the cross.

NC seeks to present all truth as interpreted by or revealed in God’s Word. Our curriculum is taught from a Biblical Christian viewpoint by born-again believers. We desire to help each student grow in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man. We believe in the inerrancy of the Bible. We believe marriage is a lifelong covenant between one man and one woman, and that God bestows gender upon each person as male or female to reflect His image.

NC recognizes that education is primarily the parents’ responsibility. The school functions as an extension of the home in nurturing each student in a firm Biblical foundation.
