Catholic identity is what sets NCS apart from all other schools. From hundreds of Catholic role models of all ages living out the school mission to parish-wide support for the students’ sacramental preparation to daily prayer and service projects at every grade level, NCS stands above the rest when it comes to helping students and their families - fully live their Catholic Faith.
NCS builds upon the religious foundation established by you and your family. Therefore, families are encouraged and expected to fully participate in this development process. Families are welcome to attend weekly school Mass, volunteer in the classroom and lunchroom, establish family prayer routines, attend school events and join in any opportunity to reinforce and encourage Catholic values being taught to our children. NCS Staff endeavors to reinforce the lessons, values and religious foundation laid in the home by creating new and challenging opportunities for students to grow in their faith and apply values learned. NCS provide students with excellent Catholic role models - teachers, staff members and priests who live their faith on a daily basis serving Christ through the ministry of education. Young students benefit from the examples set by older students in the school especially through the 6th Grade Ambassador program and the weekly celebration of Mass. Prayer is a key component of daily life at NCS. Daily classroom prayer, prayer before and after athletic events, prayer before lunch, living rosaries, celebration of Catholic Schools Week and retreats are just a few of the ways the tone is set for a spiritually enriching environment. Students are also encouraged to follow Christ’s example in service to others by participating in service programs to help those in need through toy & food drives, adopted families, confirmation & high school service projects and many more programs.
