Mission Statement:

As a Christ-centered, college preparatory school, Northpoint Christian School enables our students to:
• know and honor Jesus Christ
• grow in knowledge and wisdom
• reach their God given potential

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

We believe that Northpoint Christian School is an extension of the ministry of the church and cooperate with the home to educate the student.
We believe that God is the source of all Truth, and true education must be based on His revealed Word.

We believe that the integration of God's Word into all that we teach is essential to the spiritual, mental, physical, and social development of our students.

We believe in a structured curriculum that has been filtered through the Word of God.

We believe that the curriculum should provide opportunity for each student, as a special creation of God, to be educated as an individual with his abilities, personality, and potential.

We believe, testify, and demonstrate in our own lives, the reality of a personal encounter and walk with Jesus Christ as presented in God's Word.

We believe our purpose is to develop in students the “mind of Christ” (Philippians 2:5) so that God's Truth becomes an inseparable part of their lives and thinking processes.

School History:

Northpoint Christian School began as a vision. Ten churches desired a different kind of school for their children where prayer was an essential component and Biblical principles were implemented as part of the curriculum. This vision became a reality in the fall of 1973 when the school, known as Southern Baptist Educational Center (SBEC) began meeting in two area churches and graduated twenty-four students in the spring of 1974. SBEC moved into its own campus in the Memphis, Tennessee community and over time Broadway Baptist Church assumed operations of SBEC as one of its many ministries. In August 2013, the name of the school changed from SBEC to Northpoint Christian School.

Our facility is located on sixty-one acres in DeSoto County , Mississippi and offers academic, artistic, and athletic opportunities. Northpoint Christian School remains committed to offering excellence in Christian education as we seek to equip the next generation.
