Our Mission is to demonstrate Christ's love.
Our Vision is to help students realize and pursue their full potential—spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially—while learning to establish and grow their relationship with God.
In 1971, Nashville Christian School (NCS) was established to help students grow spiritually, academically, physically and socially to the fullest extent of their abilities. From the very beginning, it has been our goal to ensure that our students are as prepared for eternity as they are for their lives today.
The doors of NCS opened to 266 students for the first time on September 20, 1971. Directed by Carl Owen, there were 19 faculty and staff members teaching first through seventh grades. During this time, the school was housed in the West Nashville Heights Church of Christ building.
In September 1976, former headmaster Daryl Demonbreun led 418 students and 29 faculty and staff members into the school's first permanent facility. During this year of many milestones, and NCS celebrated the commencement of its first 22 graduates.
Today, our beautifully renovated facilities include the Pollock Lower School, the Campbell Upper School, the Gibson Center, the Keeton Center and the Early Childhood Learning Center. More than 70 professional faculty and staff members serve approximately 675 students from infancy to twelfth grade.
From our own infancy, we have grown into a thriving PreK-12 college-preparatory school that combines faith and learning in a unique, family like atmosphere. Located in the heart of West Nashville. Nashville Christian School continues in its endeavor to meet the expectations of the school's mission based on the inspired text in Luke 2:52 -- "...and Jesus increased in wisdom, and in stature, and in favor with God and man." At NCS, we strive to be more like Jesus, growing in every way that will bring us closer to our Creator.
It's this commitment to our students that makes all the difference in what we strive to teach everyday in the halls, the classrooms, on the ball fields, and in every corner of our campus.
For more than 40 years, thousands of West Nashville families have trusted Nashville Christian School to provide a quality education for their children—to help them realize and pursue their full potential spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially.
