Northshore Christian Academy

Elementary School Program

Serving Kindergarten through 5th Grade

Enter an elementary classroom and you will be greeted with smiling faces eagerly engaged in learning.

Our classrooms provide a well-rounded program:  Educating the mind, reaching the heart, cultivating faith and preparing for a bright future. 

The dynamic academic program is matched with faith, character, and personal development opportunities throughout every grade.  At every level, academics are paired with inspiring enrichment classes such as engineering, music, art, foreign language, public speaking, physical education, and technology training.

Differentiation such as advancement or additional support are woven throughout each grade. Additional afterschool opportunities are offered to support student learning.

Yearly standardized testing shows each grade level averages 1-2 grade levels ahead of national norms.
