North Shore utilizes the Walking With God and His People curriculum.  This is a powerful Bible curriculum that helps students know God’s Word, believe His promises, and live in faith and obedience.  It provides a structured Biblical base while ensuring a balanced approach to learning.  Solid in theology and Bible instruction, the Walking With God curriculum goal is to equip students with the knowledge they need to understand and believe God’s Word and to reflect that relationship and faith by living lives of gratitude and obedience.  Students also participate in a weekly chapel program.
