Dear Students, Parents, and families of Newell Christian School

The first day of school is almost here. We are so excited about what God will do in and through the lives of the students and families of NCS this year. With great joy and anticipation, I want to extend a warm welcome to all our students, both new and returning, as we start a new year of learning to follow and love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.

I hope you had a restful and enjoyable summer, filled with opportunities to relax, explore, and create lasting memories with your loved ones. Our dedicated staff is prayed up, prepared, and looking forward to walking with every student, providing guidance, support, and encouragement as students pursue academic excellence, personal growth, and spiritual development.

As we look forward to the first day of school quickly approaching, here are a few things that you should know:
