College Matriculation


Our hard-working graduates attend some of the most prestigious universities and colleges in the country, the majority of seniors being accepted to their first-choice schools. The NCS Guidance office works diligently to help students develop high school plans suited to their post-graduate desires, with a focus on building well-rounded college resumes that stand out to admissions offices. Our Director of Academic Counseling provides intensive college admissions preparation for rising juniors and seniors and guides them through each step of the process.

Norfolk Christian’s Class of 2020 has enjoyed acceptances to more than 80 schools, including Stanford University, Duke University, Villanova University, University of California: Irvine, San Diego, Davis and Santa Barbara campuses, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Michigan, Emerson College, College of the Ozarks, and many other public and private schools across the United States. Closer to home, ten percent of the Class of 2020 applied and was accepted to the University of Virginia.

See all Class of 2020 acceptances here.

Recent NCS alumni have gone on to graduate from the U.S. Naval Academy, Dartmouth College, Yale University, New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, and Notre Dame University, to name just a few.  See our full list of college acceptances from the last five years and those currently attended below.
