Connie Jo with kidsWelcome to Nashville Christian School's website! As the Head of School, in addition to being an NCS graduate and parent of three NCS graduates, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share with you the mission and vision of our school.

At Nashville Christian School, 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. Our goal is to provide students with an educational experience that equips them with the knowledge, skills, and character to succeed in college, careers, and life.

As the Head of School, my leadership philosophy is centered on creating a culture of excellence and fostering a student-centered learning environment. I believe that every student is unique and has the potential to achieve greatness. Therefore, my goal is to ensure that our school provides an environment that nurtures the individual talents, interests, and abilities of each student. 

As you navigate through our website, I hope you will gain a deeper understanding of who we are, what we value, and how we achieve our mission. You will find information about our preschool, academic programs, extracurricular activities, and the ways in which we integrate Christian faith into every aspect of our school community.

Whether you are a prospective family, a current NCS family member, or an alum, I invite you to explore our website. I am excited to share our story with you and to welcome you to our community.

We also invite you to schedule a visit to our campus. A visit to our school is the best way to experience the Nashville Christian School community firsthand. During your visit, you will have the opportunity to tour our facilities, meet with our faculty and staff, and observe our students in action. We believe that you will be impressed by the level of academic rigor and spiritual growth that takes place at Nashville Christian School.

Thank you again for considering Nashville Christian School as a partner in your child's education. We look forward to the opportunity to get to know you and your family better and to help your child reach their full potential.

In His name,
Connie Jo Shelton, Head of School
