It is the mission of Norfolk Christian Schools to equip students spiritually, intellectually, and physically to love God and to serve Him as Christ’s ambassadors in the world.

Mission Statement

The greatest, most valuable resource at Norfolk Christian Schools is our stellar faculty and staff. We are proud to have 88 full and part time teachers, forty-two of whom have attained a Master’s Degree or higher. While meeting all VAIS and SACS accreditation standards, our teachers boast an average of 14 years of experience in education. The average Norfolk Christian Schools high school class contains 22-25 students, offering an exceptionally attentive student-to-teacher ratio of 10 to one.

By attracting and retaining only those faculty members with a passion for their subject matter and who demonstrate a commitment to our goal of cultivating lifelong learners and ambassadors for Christ, we are able to graduate students who can identify and develop their personal gifts through continued pursuit and application of knowledge, truth, and service.
