Generally speaking, how do the academics at North Christian School compare to other schools?

Annual home surveys reflect high parent satisfaction with the academic success of their students, the quality of the staff and curriculum at North Christian School.
We aren't Baptist and do not attend North Parkersburg Baptist Church. Can our children attend North Christian School?
Yes, North Christian School is non-denominational. The curriculum is not focused on a specific denomination. Both the students and staff represent a variety of local churches from across the
Mid-Ohio Valley, both from West Virginia and Ohio.
I don't want my child to miss all the extracurricular opportunities by being in a Christian school. Aren't you limited in what you offer?
The staff and parents of North Christian School work together to provide our students the opportunity to participate in most of the county-wide school extracurricular activities including: Speech Meet, Wood County Science and Social Studies Fairs, State Science and Social Studies Fairs, Wood County Math Field Day, Wood County Spelling Bee, gifted services through TREK and SAIL, Wood County Boys' Basketball, and Wood County Track.
Students have the opportunity to participate in after-school clubs such as Cooking, Healthy Fitness, Recycling, Drama, Lego, Hand Bell Choir, Guitar and Jump Rope. Through the sponsorship of North Parkersburg Baptist Church, our students are also included in all special programs being hosted by the church, including Upward Basketball and Cheerleading, and the North Pole Event.
