Dear Prospective Families,
Imagine sending your child to school in an environment where children are safe, loved and inspired to be all that God has called them to be. Parents who send their children to Northshore Christian Academy have peace of mind knowing their children are in a caring environment. Northshore Christian Academy partners with families to provide a superior Christian education, developing spiritual, academic and personal excellence in a Christ-centered environment.
Faculty: Our faculty serves their students out of love. They have responded to the “calling” from God to serve Him in this full-time ministry. In addition to our excellent core subject instructors, all Kindergarten through 8th grade students are instructed by specialists in Foreign Language, Music/Drama, Physical Education and Technology.
Spirituality: The development of character, faith, and academic agility is paramount in our program. Our spiritual and educational programs focus on the development of the student’s character and leadership training (Speech Meet, classroom presentations, sports, concert performances, student leadership, drama etc.). Students participate in yearly service projects.
Academics: Our award winning academics at Northshore are rigorous, comprehensive, and demanding. Yet we integrate developmentally appropriate practices that include hands-on learning, with many opportunities for practical application.
STEM: We place emphasis on the STEM discipline. Our students benefit from our state-of-the-art technology. Our primary goals are to teach basic computer use, keyboarding, programming, web page design, video production, coding and basic video game design to all students, as well as the computer basics. Kindergarten-5th Grade students have 40 minutes of Engineering class in our dedicated Engineering classroom. We aspire to develop our student to be digital discerners who will innovate and design technology rather than merely consume technology.
Fine and Performing Arts Program: Our Music and Drama Department teaches music theory and musical concepts, exposes students to styles of music and composers, and spends time practicing for music performances. Students have performances at every grade level. Performing groups include orchestra, band and choir. Our Art Program and curriculum encourages students to use their highest thinking skills. Students study famous artists and recreate art in the artists' style at their grade level.
After School and Summer Programs: Through Northshore School of Arts and Enrichment (NSAE), we provide a wide variety of after school enrichment classes. We offer before and afterschool care.
Acceptance: Northshore accepts students who demonstrate strength in academic achievement, a cooperative attitude to grow spiritually in Christian character and a sincere enthusiasm for learning. Students are selected without reference to their individual profession of faith; however, active participation and support of the spiritual formation program is vital.
The Northshore faculty and staff are looking forward to the next school year and hope that you will be joining us for the excitement!
Holly Leach, Superintendent
