About North Shore Christian School

Imagine a school rooted in the principles of truth, character, and excellence. A vibrant and diverse community committed to academic excellence and innovative learning. Imagine a place where dedicated teachers encourage each child to think deeply and to serve others. This is North Shore Christian School.

North Shore Christian School has provided Christian education for children since 1951.
Although our emphasis on instructing children in Christian character has never wavered, our focus on teaching the whole child has grown to include a hands-on science curriculum, advanced mathematics instruction, an expanded program of grammar instruction, the study of classic books, and the development of both creative and academic writing skills.

We also nurture an appreciation of the arts through the study of the history of great music, painting, dance, and theater, as well as the development of artistic talent in performance. In addition, we strengthen bodies through participation in team sports offered throughout the school year. Building character, imagination, strong minds and bodies while nurturing the spirit-that’s our commitment.

Mission Statement

Rooted in historical evangelical Christian faith, North Shore Christian School, in concert with family and church, seeks to be a community that provides challenging elementary and secondary education. Through academic and biblical instruction, we strive to nurture each student’s learning and thinking, and equip them to serve God within their local communities and around the world.
