Northwest Christian School offers traditional on-the-ground classroom learning for all grades. [Review the Admissions Page]
Customary, on-the-ground instruction begins in August
Some initial modifications will ultimately be phased out
Each student's experience will be safe and customary
NCS Plus...a new forum to support on-the-ground learning. Every NCS student and every family will enjoy an added dimension within their on-the-ground classrooms: NCS Plus. Although direct instruction within on-the-ground classrooms will not change, NCS Plus will support the "flipped classroom" model of learning wherein students can revisit key concepts presented within the class when away from the classroom.
If a family wishes to keep their student home for a period of time for whatever reason, NCS Plus will support that student's continued learning, concurrent with what is happening in the classroom. This will mean that when that student is ready to return, they can do so with no disruption to academic progress.
Facilitated by a learning management system called Canvas
NCS Plus will be a classroom complement at all grade levels - K through 12
Captures key elements of the on-the-ground classroom experience
NCS Plus will better support students that are absent
Each student's participation within NCS Plus will need to be approved by a school principal.
NCS Online, Kindergarten to 5th Grade
NCS Online is a wholly separate, asynchronous learning experience for students who live away from Phoenix or who find the online classroom a more conducive learning opportunity than the traditional on-the-ground experience.
The NCS Online experience is different: different pacing, different teachers, and different opportunities. [Review the NCS Online Page]
NCS Online will utilize Canvas as its Learning Management System for grades K through 8th.
In 2022, for High School students, NCS Online will utilize Grand Canyon University's LoudCloud learning management system.
