Christian Homeschoolers of South Sound (CHoSS)

Northwest Christian High School (NCHS) offers home school families several education opportunities. Your child may apply for full-time enrollment with the intent of working towards a high school diploma, or one of the following options may be selected:

  • Enroll your student to supplement their home school education. You may choose to apply for part-time enrollment (one to four classes) if you feel your student needs additional teaching support in a particular academic area. A part-time student may be eligible to participate in non-athletic, extra curricular activities such as Knowledge Bowl, Drama and community service events.

  • If your child wants to participate in athletics at NCHS, the Washington State Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) requires home school athletes who compete in a private school to be enrolled halftime (four classes at NCHS).
