Lacey, Washington’s Northwest Christian High School (NCHS) is part of The Foundation Campus. The Foundation Campus consists of a daycare, preschool, elementary school, junior high and high school.
“Developing Christian leaders” is more than a slogan at Northwest Christian High School, it’s what we do each day. We assist your family by providing a bible-based education that helps inspire each student to pursue excellence in moral character, academics, and servant leadership.
We also stress college readiness with a focus on SAT testing at NCHS. In addition, our goal is to help every student develop their unique gifts and talents to reach their God given potential.
One hour south of Seattle, NCHS currently serves Pierce, Thurston, Lewis, Mason, and Grays Harbor counties. NCHS is one of the most affordable Christian High Schools in the greater South Sound area. The small class size at NCHS also helps improve and accelerate student learning.
