Dear Friends,

Norfolk Christian would like to thank our NCS family and our extended community for the prayers and support offered during the tragedy of Mark Rodriguez’s death. As a school, we will never be the same. But I truly believe we have been confronted just as much by hope as we have been by sadness in these recent days.

Seeing Mark’s blog about heaven touch people around the country and witnessing the peace and mercy Mark's parents have shown through unspeakable grief have left an indelible mark on our staff and families. There are no words to express what has happened here, except to say that the presence of God has taken over like never before. We look forward to watching our Lord accomplish incredible things for His Kingdom through Mark’s legacy.

As we move into summer, please continue to lift the Rodriguezes and their children up before our Father. Remember our new senior class, as they prepare to return to school without their friend. And if you have not done so, please read and share the blog we have linked here. Mark wrote this just a few weeks before God took him Home and it is changing lives with each new post. In all my years of Biblical study, I have never seen a more beautiful account of what awaits us.

If you would like to encourage the Rodriguez family in a more tangible way, please follow this link to their church website. There, you will find specific ways that you may be a blessing to them, as well as a link to the Memorial Fund set up in Mark’s honor.

Thank you for holding us up in circumstances we could not have imagined. We pray that Mark’s greatest passion would be a reality for you this summer -- that you would seek to understand in a new way how greatly our Heavenly Father loves each of us.

Trusting in Him,

Pat McCarty
Head of School


It is my pleasure to welcome you to Norfolk Christian Schools. You are in the process of making a big decision to entrust us with the precious lives of your children. We take our role as educators very seriously, and we pray daily that our larger purpose, raising students to be Ambassadors for Christ, will be fulfilled to His glory. 

Please join us for a Head, Hands & Heart tour, an Open House or peruse the pages of our website.

"Where I'm From"

Last fall, our 8th graders went on a journey to learn where they were from, based on a writing project by poet George Ella Lyon. Their results were breathtaking. Mesmerized by poem after poem, we began to wonder – what sights, sounds, memories defined our students’ experiences at Norfolk Christian? That thought became the basis of the “Where I’m From” video, involving students from pre-K through 12th grade.

To read some of our students’ original works and to see a written version of the poem compiled about Norfolk Christian, please click here.
