Northshore Christian Academy

Educational Philosophy

Northshore Christian Academy (NCA) filters all learning through a Biblical world-view that recognizes Christ as Creator and Lord. We endeavor to train students spiritually, academically, and personally. Northshore integrates faith  and learning as we educate and equip the whole child to impact a changing world to the glory of God. The entire process of education is used by the Holy Spirit to bring students into fellowship with God, develop a Christ-like mind, and to train them in Godly living, so that they can fulfill God’s total purpose for their lives personally and vocationally.
