College Guidance

Preparing Students for Their Future

The world of college admissions can be overwhelming but Northside Christian Academy recognizes the importance of equipping students with the knowledge and information they need to be successful as they transition into their college years.

The Guidance Department at Northside Christian Academy aids students along the college planning path by providing a full range of services for all aspects of academic life and college preparation. Our College Counseling program begins with educational workshops in ninth grade and continues through the senior year with increasingly involved and individualized programming. The Guidance Department cultivates this process by offering individual and group meetings, visits with college representatives, helps facilitate college tours and campus visits, SAT and ACT prep, and assistance with applications, interviews, and scholarships.

NCA’s College Counselor values building relationships with students and serving as a resource to parents. She has connections with college representatives across the country and assists students in selecting a college that will allow them to reach their spiritual, educational, and career goals.

NCA provided me with an excellent education that was delivered with care and compassion. The staff took a genuine interest in my academic, personal, and spiritual growth. I feel that the personal attention I received helped to fortify in me a foundation of sympathy and empathy for others, which has helped me grow personally and professionally.
_Kelly Floyd, Founder & Physical Therapist at Elite Physical Therapy, NCA Alumna class of 1997
I could not be more thankful to the Lord for my time at Northside Christian Academy. I was not only able to learn how to become a better student or athlete, but I was also able to see tremendous testimonies for Christ in how I should live my life. Even now that I am a working professional, I can fondly look back at my educational, athletic, and life experience at Northside as a time period that really helped shape my work ethic and character in was that has led to future success in college, my career, and in how I live my life in striving to glorify Christ.
