Executive Director's Welcome


Welcome to our website!

I am so excited to be able to share my passion for North Hills Christian School and invite you to explore our site to learn more about our mission. You are probably visiting our site because you are about to make a very important decision and commitment of where to send your child to school. It's not a decision to be taken lightly, nor is it a decision without lifelong consequences.

It has not been that long ago that as a working mom in the corporate world, my husband and I had to go through the same decision process for our own children. For our children, we knew we wanted an outstanding academic program that could be continuous through their high school experience. We wanted an excellent academic program taught in the context of a Biblical world view, we wanted a school where parents were involved in their child's education in a family environment and we wanted a place where our children could reach their God given potential no matter what their ability. When we found NHCS, we knew we had found where our children needed to be. And, when we made the decision to bring our children to NHCS, little did I know God was working in my own life to direct my steps to be able to lead this wonderful institution!

Our mission at North Hills Christian School is "equipping the hearts and minds of students to impact the world for Christ."  A bold vision, but a worthy one. When I observe and interact with our current students, when I hear of the accomplishments and impact of our alumni, I think we are accomplishing that goal. However, we are not satisfied. We continue to set our sights even higher! How do we do it? I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our school; it covers a great deal of information. You'll read of our development of a Christ centered Classical curriculum. You'll read about our integration of technology as a learning tool. You will also find information about our history, our tuition assistance, our diversity of culture, how our students test scores rank and a list of colleges where our graduates have been accepted. 

Ultimately, at the end of the day we hope you walk away with the impression that we are educating and developing the future citizens and leaders of our communities, churches, businesses, nation and families. Your child was created in the image of God and we take our role seriously to partner with you to help your child succeed academically and to fullfil our mission to "impact the world for Christ."

As you become acquainted with North Hills Christian School, my prayer is that you might gain even a glimpse of what God is doing in this remarkable school. If I may answer any questions or simply sit and talk with you and your family, it would be my privilege. Please do not hesitate to call or email my assistant, Suzanne Thibodeau (704-636-3005, ext. 101), to schedule an appointment.

May the Lord bless you richly as you seek His plan!


Maria Lowder, Executive Director
