At Northside Christian Academy in Charlotte, N.C., students benefit from private Christian academics, numerous extracurricular activities and a unique opportunities for personal growth. From kindergarten through twelfth grade, we emphasize Christ’s presence in all areas of learning. But one thing that makes the experience truly unique is what we call “the living curriculum.”
When we talk about the living curriculum here at Northside, we’re not talking about course material or lesson plans. After all, every school has those. Instead, we’re referring to the distinctive group of teachers that call our school home.
