Mission Statement[edit]

North Clackamas Christian School partners with Christian parents to provide our students with a Biblically-based education that pursues excellence in spiritual, academic, artistic and athletic programs, training them to serve Christ daily.

History[edit]

NCCS was founded in 1973 by a group of parents wanting to establish a school with a strong academic program and a Christian culture and worldview. After purchasing land on a hilltop in Oregon City, volunteers constructed the first six-room building for 93 students and six teachers.[7] NCCS has since grown into a fully accredited institution with a full service campus.

The School is Govenred by a Board of Directors. Current Board Chair is Tim Dale.

Over the years there has been a multiple of administrators. There is more employee turn over in that area than in other areas. After some abrupt changes of leadership, the position of administrator was placed in the responsible hands of Mr. Tim Tutty.
