Newark Christian School (NCS) is a mission school founded in 1984 to support World Impact's discipleship and church-planting goals. For the 2012-13 school year, NCS serves students in kindergarten to seventh grade with a view of adding and additional grade. To enhance the school ministry, we have an after-care program and a summer day camp.

Local Community And Student Body

The majority of our student body families are immigrants from Africa, South and Central America and the Caribbean. The remainder of the student body is from African-American families.


Each grade has a Bible class designed to encourage an interest in knowing and serving God, and biblical topics are incorporated across the curriculum. Field trips and specials, such as Geography Day and Science Day, supplement the academic curriculum. Each class has physical education class thrice per week as well as weekly library and music classes. Older students learn to play chess during their lunch periods in addition to skills like fencing during after-school clubs.

We are in the process of reorganizing the school into three pods allowing for highly differentiated instruction, kindergarten through grade two, grades three through five, and grades six through eight, each with its own special emphasis. The primary grades will focus on reading, mathematics, intellectual curiosity and a love for learning. The middle grades will focus on helping students transition into taking individual responsibility for their continued learning, and the upper grades will focus on leadership.

Student Sponsorship

Tuition is based on family income and starts as low as $500 per year. Student sponsorships of $500 per year supplement tuition for our students.

We encourage sponsors to connect with their students. One way to connect is through our annual student sponsorship luncheon, which allows sponsors to eat with their students and to watch a dress rehearsal of the annual spring program.
