The vision of Northland Christian School is for each student to: maximize their academic potential, develop and care for their body, understand their worth, and show respect and compassion for others. We believe that serving our community in the name of Christ is an integral part of our vision.
In addition to the service projects students complete in each grade throughout their academic life at NCS, students are required to complete 15 hours of individual service each year of Middle School and 20 hours for each school year of High School (May 1-April 30). The hours can be earned by serving here at NCS, in their church, or at a non-profit organization in our community.
“Acts,” our Community Service program, serves local, national, and international communities. Northland students are encouraged to select projects of personal interest and lead initiatives. Through these projects, students learn about other people and cultures. Community Service benefits those who are being helped, as well as those who are performing the service. Service enriches the lives of our students by expanding their worldview and creating opportunities for them to cultivate empathy for others. These projects create a canopy of relationships that bridge generations and communities.
This list is not comprehensive but is designed to provide families with ideas about opportunities available in the Houston area. Please remember the group must be a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Elementary students are currently in their 7th year of monthly service projects led by a different grade level each month. Organizations served have been Operation Christmas Child, active military personnel, and many others. Our goal is to emphasize compassion and the ability to think outside of ourselves by helping to meet the needs of others.
Each January, Northland elementary students collect canned goods for people in the local community who are in need. The food is donated to the MANNA pantry, an outreach program of one of the local churches.
Other class-wide and school-wide service projects emerge as the needs of the local community arise.
