Many choose to attend a private school because of the significant academic advantages, the individualized attention from caring teachers, or the increased opportunity to get involved in extracurricular activities. At Niagara Christian Collegiate, your child will receive all of these benefits, and many more. We are dedicated to building intellect, shaping character, instilling self-discipline, and developing leadership skills in our students. Simply put, we prepare our students for life success.
Our faculty play a key role in this success by encouraging students to go beyond the confines of the classroom and become involved in the many opportunities available on campus, ranging from athletics to student leadership and social justice associations. This comprehensive approach to education has demonstrated itself to be very successful as our university and college institution acceptance rate is 100%, a testament to the world of opportunity that is opened up for NCC graduates.
2016-17 School Year Information:
Our campus is designed to provide a safe and nurturing environment, and at the same time give our students a sense of independence that helps them mature into young adults. Students get to enjoy nature as they live on our beautiful campus; they get to talk with caring staff as they eat lunch together or toss a Frisbee; and they participate in many activities planned for them which build relationships and foster community.
Many of our students live on campus full time, and other students commute each day from the local area (we do offer busing services). Our living facilities are divided into a girls’ dorm and a boys’ dorm, and we have full-time staff that live in the dormitories to ensure our students are safe and privacy is respected. We maintain our family-like atmosphere through balancing engaging and fun activities with study and quiet time.
School activities are an important part of the NCC experience, and NCC’s beautiful 129 acre campus provides the perfect back-drop for a variety of outdoor activities. Our spacious gymnasium, recreation centre, fitness centre, music room, and other indoor facilities also aid in providing rich opportunities to develop leadership and social skills, confidence and self-discipline.
