Northside Christian Academy

Academic Excellence

Northside Christian Academy (NCA)  is enrolling grades K-5th for our 2022-2023 school year. (we may be able to accommodate other grades if in a sibling group)  NCA strives to develop in students a lifelong love of learning, an abiding faith in Christ and personal integrity.  Our motto is Training for Life, Training for Eternity. 

Our world is facing unprecedented challenges, unseen in most of our lifetimes.  Discussions are returning to revamping the way we educate children.  Making their environment safer, and more individualized.  NCA has been utilizing a proven model that allows for that flexibility.  

NCA 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. 

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

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.
