We have remained busy during these hot, summer days with anticipation of what God is going to do at Northside Christian Academy in 2011-2012. Sydney Harris has written, “what you learn with just the mind is quickly forgotten; what you learn when you are also emotionally involved remains imprinted in the nervous system; and the first task of education is involvement, not mere learning.” Northside Christian Academy has been actively involved in providing excellence in education that involves the entire essence of the student for 50 years. This education is instilled with the solid commitment that Jesus Christ is the unconditional Lord of life.
It is our desire that young people be in a Christ-like environment where they can be challenged socially, physically, mentally and, above all, spiritually. Such an atmosphere will involve them in life changing principles and practice. Northside Christian Academy strives to see youth go and grow into life with a practical usage of knowledge that will work in the day-to-day community. Herbert Spencer once said, “The great aim in education is not knowledge but action.” Northside Christian Academy has a history of students graduating into life accomplishing a maximum Christ-like effect.
It is our distinct privilege to be a part of the training of children. It is our prayer that this endeavor will strengthen children to be involved in life with a Christ-honoring lifestyle. Our mission statement explains it best: “Northside Christian Academy is here to partner with Christian families to provide a Christ-centered, biblically based education in pursuit of excellence.” We are looking forward to another great year together in Christian education!
We are blessed that God has continued to send wonderful families and students who will carry on the rich spiritual and academic heritage at NCA. Let’s be encouraged knowing that God has blessed our school and all who pass through these doors for 50 years. He is our purpose for all that we accomplish at Northside Christian Academy. As we “partner” with families to fulfill our mission statement, we believe that God will be honored as we continue to follow our motto by “impacting students for eternity.”
Come join us today!
