Student Life

Life at NCS

At Northside Christian School, students make friendships that last a lifetime. Many of these friendships are formed in extracurricular activities such as 

Activity Period

Students in middle and high school have special activity periods several times each month. Examples include fine arts performances, seasonal sports recognition, pep rallies, academic awards, and special spiritual life events.

Club Time

Most Northside Christian School students are involved in fine arts and/or athletics programs, which meet almost every day after school. We realize most colleges also want students to be involved in clubs, therefore at NCS, club time is incorporated once every two weeks into the school day. Northside Christian School offers academic as well as special interest clubs, such as Student Council, National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta, fishing, cooking, etc. 


Homecoming week is filled with zany, fun activities including hall decoration, themed dress up days, class competitions, and enthusiastic pep rallies culminating with the homecoming football game, the crowning of the homecoming court, various alumni activities and the high school homecoming dance. 


NCS juniors and seniors look forward to Prom every spring. The off-campus locations vary based on each class’s selection and theme

Class Trips

Field trips are an important part of the learning experience and are offered in grades K-12. Overnight trips include the 5th grade camping trip, the 8th grade tour of Washington, D.C., and the 9th grade retreat.  Seniors enjoy an overnight retreat and a special end of year trip to the mountains of Tennessee.  


Students in 5th grade are invited to be safety patrols and are responsible for various duties around campus including walking Kindergarten students to classrooms and car line. Our seniors are paired with Preschoolers. They spend one day a month with their Preschool buddy, reading to them, enjoying an ice cream sundae, playing games or even hosting a trunk or treat party.
