Northshore Christian Academy has been the absolute best choice for our two children who are in elementary and middle school. Our children are happy here, they are thriving academically, and they are growing emotionally and spiritually in wonderful ways. Northshore has a phenomenal STEM program focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. There is a an amazing Music program and fun options like Sports, Middle School Musical, Speech Meet, and Math Olympics plus after-school Arts and Enrichment classes. The teachers are caring and dedicated, and the administrators are very helpful. We LOVE NCA!

Both of my children attended Northshore Christian Academy from PreK through 8th grade. I know without a doubt that they were equipped and prepared for the high school years that were ahead of them. Even subjects outside of excellent academics helped in preparing them for their future -things like speech preparation and recitation, oral presentations at all ages, computer usage in everyday learning, art and music! These "add-ons" made for a full education and my children were worlds ahead of others in High School because of them.

I am the parent of 6 and 8 year old boys who attend Northshore Christian Academy. We have been at Northshore since our oldest was in kindergarten and have been pleased by the teachers and admin staffs devotion to the children's learning and safety. My wife and I really like that the academic bar is set higher than state school standards. We also really enjoy the Christmas plays and concerts our boys get to participate in. We are confident that our boys are receiving the best education experience available.

My wife and I have been affiliated with Northshore Christian Academy since 1999 when we had a granddaughter enrolled in the 4th and 5th grades and now a great grandson (whom we are raising) enrolled since the 1st grade and he is now in the 7th grade. This school is one of the best in the state and public schools love to get our Northshore students after they graduate from the 8th grade because they are more advanced academically and are well disciplined. We both volunteer for various activities within the school. I am very pleased with this school and would highly recommend it. I guarantee you would be more than pleased and be assured, your child will get a good education. .
