"Train a child in the way he would go, and when he is old he will not turn from it."
- Proverb 22:6 NIV

We the NJCS Staff, welcome you to the New Jerusalem Chirstian School. Our Mission, philosophy, and goal cannot be fully accomplished without the help of our parents. We would like to thank you for the faith and trust you have placed in us to serve you and your children. We understand that a child is one of God's greatest gifts, and we will treat each child as such.

School Philosophy
Our God is the master and giver of all knowledge. Therefored, God gives every child the ability to learn. Through Him all children can learn with proper instruction and guidance. It is both our ministry and duty to provide the children we serve with the learning experiences that will allow them to maximize their learning capacity.
