North Clackamas Christian School is blessed with a highly qualified staff of classroom teachers, specialists and support personnel who are dedicated to the overall academic success and spiritual growth of our students.  Our teaching faculty is fully trained and credentialed, many having advanced degrees.  Among our twenty full and part-time teaching faculty there is an average of over ten years of experience.  All NCCS teachers are committed Christians who follow the Lord and are called to serve students in a rich Bible-believing learning environment.  They have a passion for teaching and a focus on academic excellence for all students.  They involve themselves in the daily lives and activities of our student body every day, and each staff member serves as a Christian role model for all students.

North Clackamas Christian School employs one full-time teacher in pre-school, as well as Kindergarten through 6th grade.  Our school also employs five full or part-time teaching assistants for elementary grades (K-6), a part-time learning specialist, and an art, library, band, choral and physical education specialist.

In the secondary grades (7-12), North Clackamas Christian employs eight teachers on staff full-time and one adjunct college professor specializing in a specific area of advanced curriculum.  A college/career counselor is also available for students in the secondary grades.

Our instructional focus is a standards-based college preparatory program that prepares students for the next important stage in their lives, whether college, work or the military.  As a result, North Clackamas Christian School is ranked among the top twenty private K-12 schools in the state of Oregon by Niche (2018).
