You can discover a lot about a school from what its students, parents, and staff have to say about it. But, sometimes what you hear on a school’s campus is just as telling as what you don’t hear. To prove our point, here are a few words we rarely hear spoken at Northside Christian Academy.
From music, singing, and performance art to tennis, martial arts, chess, and community service, our private Christian school in Charlotte, N.C., offers exceptional extracurricular diversity for students to explore and develop their interests. Northside students are curious and versatile, and thrive on pursuing new challenges.
“My faith is not important to me.”
At Northside Christian Academy, our curriculum is based on a partnership with families to provide a Christ-centered, Biblically-based education. We aim to inspire our students to live morally courageous lives defined by the Word of God and our core values of wisdom, honor, and truth.
“I don’t like any of my teachers.”
Our passionate Living Curriculum teachers come from many backgrounds, defined by many different experiences, but they all have one thing in common: a relentless dedication to serving as a role model in Christ for their students. Our teachers are happy, positive, humble people who are motivated to motivate their students. They recognize that developing positive relationships is key to building character. And, in turn, our students recognize that their teachers care deeply about their success.
“I don’t like any of my classes.”
With integrated elementary and secondary school curriculums, and several Advanced Placement courses with a track record of success, our students are provided with plenty of opportunities for academic engagement. An average class size of just 16, means our students get more one-on-one time with their teachers, and have greater opportunities to ask questions and pursue their unique interests.
“I don’t feel connected to my school.”
Northside Christian Academy has a proud history of more than 50 years of dedicated alumni. In fact, since its establishment, Northside has grown from 44 students to more than 550. This growth shows that our students eventually become part of a broader network of the Northside Christian Academy community, and are enthusiastic to be lifelong Knights at heart. Every year during Spirit Week, many alumni return to reconnect with classmates, friends, and faculty while current students enjoy dress-up days, contests, and a pep rally.
Above all, we are committed to nurturing committed, caring citizens who will be lifelong learners centered in Christ. Our students are not students with a “who cares?” attitude, but students who believe in the impact they can make on the world around them.
If that sounds like a list of things you hope your children will never say about their school, schedule a visit of our private Christian school in Charlotte, N.C., today! Come see for yourself why we’re proud of the difference we make in our students’ lives.
