Welcome Back Picnic

Thank you for your consideration of Northside Christian School. We are excited about what God is doing here and are humbled that you would consider us to partner with you in helping your children better learn, love, and live Christ!

We are not ignorant of the immense sacrifice that it takes for your child to be at a Christian School. We believe strongly in the opportunity to provide a Christ-focused, biblical worldview shaping environment for all students. We appreciate your thoughtful and prayerful consideration of allowing us to partner with you in this effort. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. 

Visit Northside Christian School

If you have not been to our school, please call (614) 882-1493 today to schedule your visit. We strongly recommend that parents of elementary students make an appointment for a classroom observation. This will enable you to see our students and teachers in action and get a taste of the Christian education offered at our school. For those students entering 6th-12th grades, we require that the student spend at least half of a day in our classrooms.
