General School Mission

"Our Children are the most important investment in the future. The highest possible achievement for any child is to understand and follow God's plan and purpose. The Bible directs parents to prepare their children for Godly lives. We believe the school should aid parents in this task.
The home, school, and church educate the whole child in preparation for adulthood. These components cannot be isolated. Therefore, the school must address each of these interrelated components developing the total person spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically.
Here at NWCC we strive to:
Develop creativity and self expression
Foster positive attitudes towards self and others
Promote health, physical and spiritual growth
Strengthen relationships between the child's home and school
Provide qualified teaching staff:
Dedicated to the role of Christian education
Sensitive to the needs of our students
Believe each student is God's creation with individual needs deserving of love and respect in a nurturing educational environment
The word philosophy comes from the "Greek" meaning love of wisdom. In searching for the truth, each person develops a series of values and beliefs that guides their actions. This is their philosophy of life. The Apostle Paul admonishes us not to be spoiled by the philosophies of the world, such as situation ethics, humanism and materialism (Col 2:8). Christian philosophy, therefore, must be based on the Lord Jesus Christ, For it is in Christ that all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are found.
It is not necessary that every student who attends NWCC be from a born again Christian family. Our goal is that every student be given the opportunity to come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and grow in knowledge of Him. A personal commitment to Christ is a decision left up to each student.
Romans 10:9-10 "That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved."
