Dear Parents,

Northwest Christian High School is a school that is rich in tradition and history. Here at NCS we are committed to providing an education that is Christ centered, biblically-based, and academically rigorous to our students. We want our students to be prepared both spiritually and academically to face the challenges of their world. As they get closer to leaving the familiarity of high school, NCS Guidance will help them navigate the many resources available in their college and career search. If you can't find what you need, please contact me in the Guidance office.

Sincerely, Maggie Kipp, Academic Counselor
