Vision

Our desire is to come alongside the family, providing a Christian school whose objective is the godly equipping of children.

Core Values

Absolute Truth - Sanctify them in the truth; your Word is truth.  (John 17:17 ESV)

NorthCreek's staff is committed to helping students discover the truth as revealed in God's Word and teaching students how to think with discernment. We emphasize the Word of God in all subjects and activities, and train our students to view life from a biblical perspective as they weigh everything against God's Word.

Christ-Centered - May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence. (2 Peter 1:2-11 ESV)

Believing that Jesus Christ provides all that we need for life and godliness, we want to be certain that we focus on the Gospel so our children might know His message of salvation. All that we say and do should reflect His mind and heart for people to be reconciled to God and to each other. To that end, we make every effort to practice the teachings of Jesus in all areas and relationships of our school, beginning with our dedicated staff: qualified, caring educators who place their faith in Jesus Christ and are involved in a local evangelical, Protestant church.

Treasured Partnerships - Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.  (Proverbs 22:6 ESV)

God has entrusted parents with the responsibility of training up their children, and we view our role of providing biblical life instruction as an extension of that scriptural responsibility. We desire to partner with parents whose objective is the godly equipping of their children. We value parental involvement and are committed to working together for student success on all levels, welcoming parent assistance in classrooms, in the many special events held throughout the year, and in our service projects as well.

Vibrant Academics - You shall therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul…You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. (Deuteronomy 11:18-19 ESV)

Our program is built upon the Classical Christian philosophy of education which emphasizes learning through the senses in the preschool years; the mastering of facts through jingles, rhymes and chants in the elementary years; and the honing of critical reasoning skills which emerge in the junior high years. Along with core academic subjects in reading, writing, math, history and science, all students have Bible, art, music and PE, with Latin beginning in second grade. In addition to the academics, our junior high offers elective classes, music and after school sports programs, and trains students in debate. Our Learning Assistance Program offers help for students who need additional academic support.

Cultivating Excellence - Whatever you do, do it with all your might.” Ecclesiastes 9:10 or “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.  (Colossians 3:17 ESV)

We are committed to hard work and doing our best, expecting the same from our students as we train them in all things. We desire that our very lives and the school itself be known for our commitment to excellence, for the glory of God.
