BEVERLY AND WENHAM, MA—North Shore Christian School announces the relocation of its Beverly Campus to its new Wenham location on the grounds of Gordon College.  This is happening ahead of the academic year 2024–2025.  Conveniently located off Route 128’s exit 48, North Shore Christian School is now accepting applications for enrollment for grades Preschool through 8th.  

North Shore Christian School (NSCS) and Gordon College have long enjoyed a professional collaboration, culminating in a large number of NSCS’s teaching staff and administrators who are Gordon College graduates. Sharing a mutual mission, NSCS and Gordon College have reaped the benefits of the very best of what both schools have to offer.  “The timing could not be more perfect, as we have experienced an increase in enrollment in recent years and a desire to expand our program offerings.  I am thrilled to accentuate our strong relations with Gordon in this move to their beautiful campus!” states Pam Heintz, NSCS Head of School.

NSCS was established in 1951 as one of the first premier private Christian schools on Boston’s North Shore.  Accredited by the New England Association of School and Colleges (NEASC) and a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), North Shore Christian School has remained committed to its legacy of educating children through a Chistian worldview, while ensuring a stellar 21st-century education with graduates among the top in their classes.

With campuses currently located in Lynn and Beverly (Early Childhood—Grade 8), and Hamilton (Early Childhood), NSCS seeks to be a community that provides rigorous Elementary and Secondary education through academic and biblical instruction that reflects its mission of  nurturing each student’s unique learning and thinking. The mission of NSCS is supported by its four pillars of distinction: Planted in Excellence, Rooted in Christ, Nurtured to Thrive, and Flourishing to Impact.  NSCS is an exceptional environment that seeks to ensure that children in their formative years understand the importance of wholesome values and service, so that extending mercy and making a positive impact become a natural extension of one’s person. Spiritual formation is emphasized through daily Scripture study and weekly Chapel services.

NSCS provides the opportunity each year for several Gordon College Herschend School of Education students to “practice and hone” their teaching skills through internships at one of its three campuses.  At the same time, NSCS staff benefits immensely from continued graduate education and professional development opportunities through Gordon College. In fact, NSCS’s Head of School Pam Heintz and Lead Principal Robin Lowe were part of the inaugural Educational Specialist (EdS) program at Gordon and have been able to strengthen programming and leadership at NSCS as a result of the skills and experiences gained while in the program.   Dr. Ellen Ballock, Dean and Professor of Education at the Herschend School of Education at Gordon College has expressed that, “Gordon Faculty look forward to deepening our long-standing partnership with North Shore Christian School. The new campus location will provide a unique opportunity for innovation as we pursue our shared commitments to PK-8 student learning, high quality teacher preparation, and Christian education.”  

Gordon College remains on the leading edge of research-based reading methods—training reading specialists throughout the country and around the world through the certification program in the Orton-Gillingham method. To this end, NSCS’s Lynn Campus was one of the training sites.

North Shore Christian School is now accepting enrollment for grades Preschool through 8th, on our Wenham Campus, as well as on our Lynn and Hamilton Campuses.  Please visit our website at or contact our Director Admissions, Christine Saia at, or call Christine directly at 781-469-0706.
