Nebraska Christian has many ways for students to connect. No matter a student’s interests, we have places where they can connect with others and hone their talents. Check out our list of activities and athletic opportunities below, and click the links to learn more.
Nebraska Christian Schools offers art, music, one-act play, quiz bowl, robotics, and speech programs on the secondary level. Students are also able to participate in student government through student council. In all of these activities, students are encouraged to develop their personal relationship with the Lord. Extra-curricular activities give students the opportunity to be a testimony to students at other schools and to use their talents to glorify God.
We offer a variety of athletic opportunities for our junior and senior high students. We believe that it’s important for students to learn to apply the principles they learn in their Bible classes to every part of their lives, including athletics. Lifelong skills and biblical principles such as unity, teamwork, encouragement and excellence are taught and encouraged by coaches.
Teams compete against area schools in varsity and JV contests. NC is a member of the Nebraska Schools Activities Association (NSAA) and the Goldenrod Conference.
We currently offer the following sports: cross country (boys & girls), football (boys), volleyball (girls), basketball (boys & girls), wrestling (boys), track (boys & girls). We also have boys and girls club soccer teams that compete in a Grand Island community league.
Spelling Bee – In February, 5th and 6th grade students compete in the Merrick County Spelling Bee. Our students consistently qualify for the final oral rounds, and we have had several students who have placed 1st or 2nd in recent competitions.
Music – The music program has always been very important at NC. Elementary students present a musical drama in the spring and also take part in Nebraska Christian’s Festival of Lessons and Carols. Traditionally students go Christmas caroling at local nursing homes in December.
Field trips – Elementary students take a minimum of two educational field trips throughout the year. All grade levels participate in the Stuhr Museum H.A.T.S. (heritage activities for today’s students) program in Grand Island.
