Our Focus

In order to increase their knowledge and grow as individuals, each student is engaged in a variety of different ways.  Academics are important, but equally as important is the ability to face the constantly changing challenges of everyday life.  We recognize this fact and strive to prepare each student with the skillsets and building blocks they need to be productive citizens of their community and dynamic ambassadors for Christ.

Anchored Academy
(formerly Northside Christian Academy)

Anchored Academy is a Covenant Christian micro-school serving the Treasure Coast area.  What is a covenant school?  "A covenant school embraces and nurtures Christian families who desire to bring their children up in the love of the Lord with fellow believers." (CSM article, 2022)

 

Students and families at Anchored Academy are well connected to a local church, hold shared beliefs and values, and focus on maintaining a consistent environment across church, school, and home.  Our families are asked to provide a pastoral reference and sign a statement of faith upon enrollment. 

 

We strive to develop in students a lifelong love of learning, an abiding faith in Christ, and personal integrity.  Our vision is Training for Life, Training for Eternity. 

Our mission is to educate students with a Biblical Worldview, showing them God's heart through every activity and modeling Christ's love with every interaction. Our Core Values are: Anchored in God's Truth, Anchored in God's Love, Anchored in God's Kingdom. 

Anchored Academy is open for tours and inquiries for our 2024-2025 school year.  We have not yet determined the number of enrollment openings for next year, however they will be in K-3rd grades only. *Exceptions might be made for siblings in 4th-5th grade.  Once students are enrolled and have completed a successful year, they will have the opportunity to stay enrolled with us through their 12th-grade graduation. 

 

Our world is facing unprecedented challenges, discussions are returning to revamping the way we educate children.  Making their environment safer and more individualized.  We have been utilizing a proven model that allows for that flexibility.  

Anchored Academy utilizes the Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.) curriculum.  A.C.E. is a self-paced, mastery-based approach to learning.  PACEs allow students to absorb material at their own rate rather than being forced to learn at a schedule set by a teacher in a classroom environment.  PACEs are not busy work or worksheets.  Each PACE is an instructional packet that teaches students the skills they need to complete their assignments or goals for the week.  A.C.E. celebrated 50 years of success in 2020 and their curriculum is used in schools and homes throughout the world.  

Each student advances based on their individual learning ability.  For instance, a student placed in fifth grade in a traditional school setting may be taking varying levels of PACEs in the A.C.E. system.  The same student could be taking Level 3 Math, Level 5 Science, and Level 4 English.  Students move ahead only after they have proven mastery of the subject matter.  To learn more about this curriculum and philosophy, you can watch the short videos below. 

In order to increase their knowledge and grow as individuals, each student is engaged in a variety of different ways.  Academics are important, but equally as important is the ability to face the constantly changing challenges of everyday life.  We recognize this fact and strive to prepare each student with the skillsets and building blocks they need to be productive citizens of their community and dynamic ambassadors for Christ.  

All of the teaching staff meet one of the standards below:

 - Bachelor’s Degree or higher in any subject
- Three or more years of K-12th grade teaching experience
- Special skills, knowledge, or expertise that qualifies them to provide instruction in K-12th grade subjects

Please enjoy a few highlights of our learning environment both in and out of the classroom. Also, a little bit of fun!

Dedication. Expertise. Passion.

Meet the Team of Education Professionals who give of themselves each day to ensure the success of every student attending Northside Christian Academy.

Individualized

Students progress at their own pace through setting daily goals, adhering to internal controls and responding to positive motivation.  

Life Skills

Our Core Curriculum is supplemented with instruction in art, computer, creative writing, and character building necessary for successful daily living.  

God's Word

Every morning students gather for devotions and scripture memorization.   All pacework and classes focus on practical living with the Lord on a daily basis.  

  • How is this different from traditional public school?
    Northside Christian Academy doesn't use the traditional classroom style of teaching. Each student is given an individual office space and works independently on their PACE work. There are supervisors (teachers) to answer all academic questions and monitors (teachers aids) to answer any permission based questions. Students work at their own pace and don't progress without mastery of the subject material. We are also able to offer additional courses that focus on life skills, personal integrity/character development and spiritual maturity.
  • How do you determine what level PACEs my student will start with?
    There is an online diagnostic tool given to every student during the application process. This will identify any learning gaps and give us information on where to start your child in each of the core subjects so that they are learning at a comfortable level to achieve success.
  • What is the cost of tuition?
    Tuition costs for 2023-24 are $7,500 per student which includes tuition, curriculum, basic supply & technology fee. The application fee for new students is $125 per student which includes registration and diagnostic testing.
  • Do you accept scholarships?
    We have a scholarship fund available for Northside Worship Center members (application process required, certain restrictions apply). We accept the FTC, FES-EO, and Hope Scholarships through Step up for Students. If you are using the FES-UA Scholarship, please reach out to discuss it in more detail.
