Northminster Christian School


Are you looking for a great school for your child where you know they will be loved and safe as they begin their journey into the wonderful world of discovery?

In the heart of the Tucson desert sits a red brick building with a large steeple surrounded by trees, lush green grass and vegetation. Here, children learn and grow and are taught about God and His love...

Children's Courtyard

Northminster Christian School benefits the young minds, bodies and spirits of Tucson’s children. We offer a classic experience of art, music, social development and emotional growth, as well as math and language readiness skills, in a bright facility enriched by an atmosphere of Christian values and love.

Northminster is a state-licensed program that is open to children of all races, nationalities and faiths, ages two-and-a-half to third grade. The school offers a low student-to-teacher ratio as each and every child is given individualized attention.

Northminster Christian School features:

  • Hands-on, Christian-based curricula
  • Caring, loving teachers and staff
  • Activity centers
  • Library "Story Hour"
  • Chapel
  • A safe, gated school and play area
  • An early care program
  • An afterschool extended-care program

Our Purpose and Philosophy

The school is a ministry of Northminster Presbyterian Church and is an extension of Northminster's Christian Education Program. Our goal is to nurture young children in the love of Jesus Christ and to provide each child with a positive learning experience. We believe that the early years of formal education lay the foundation for all future learning; therefore, we provide an encouraging atmosphere that is conducive to the individual student’s growth and development.

We believe that each child is a unique gift from God. We use an approach that seeks to meet the needs of the whole child, and recognizes that each one develops at his or her own rate. We provide an environment that is safe, loving and rich in opportunities for learning and growth through age appropriate, hands-on activities.

Our Mission Statement

Northminster Christian School is committed to providing a Christ-centered educational environment where each child can learn and grow emotionally, physically, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Northminster Christian School desires to serve as a resource to children and families within the school and in the community.
