The Arts at NCS

Every creative outlet at Nanaimo Christian School is highly student-driven. Students truly shine as they hone their skills or try new things in theatre, music, visual arts, and applied design skills and technology (ADST). Future Famous, our annual fine arts night, showcases student talent that is not performance-based. 


Music & theatre

NCS students have excellent opportunities to develop their gift of music or drama while learning in class and performing on stage. We work hard together to produce excellence in each other and unearth students’ God-given gifts and talents. Past musical productions include West Side Story, Mary Poppins, Beauty & the Beast and The Wizard of Oz.

“Our technology program allows students to get academic credit for what they may be doing in their own free time anyway. One student recently went on to receive a university scholarship based on his work with video game design."

Alex Toews, High school teacher
