About Us - North Hills Christian School


The Story of North Hills Christian School

North Hills Christian School is a ministry of North Hills Baptist Church. Its beginning is a remarkable story that can only be attributed to God's grace and love manifested through a group of parents, teachers, administrators, and Board members dedicated to the propagation of a Christian model of education. The school had its "Genesis" in 1971, as a ministry of Castlewood Baptist Church with an enrollment of nine. In 1973, the school absorbed Grace Christian Academy and increased its enrollment to 119 students. In 1975, growth caused the school to use facilities of Emmanuel Baptist Church. In 1976, North Hills Baptist Church was organized as a new work with the purpose of continuing to provide Christian education to the Vallejo Community. In 1978, North Hills finished construction of the first building and moved into its present location. In 2005, NHCS was accredited by ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) and WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges). We have students in preschool, elementary, middle and high school. The Lord continues to move mightily at North Hills and we praise him for it.
