What is a Community School?

The community school model provides parents with the opportunity to be intimately involved in their children’s education through at-home teaching as well as regular service and involvement on campus. Parents with students in PreK through eighth grade teach their children two days per week. Parents of high schoolers serve as facilitators to their students on the two at-home days. The NorthBay community consists of parents, faculty, and staff working together and supporting each other to

  • equip students academically.
  • help students develop a love for God and His word.
  • encourage a deep, life-long relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

The parents’ intimate involvement in the school’s daily activities lends itself to a great sense of community among the parents, all of whom share a common vision and a common goal for the spiritual, moral and academic education of their children. The environment on campus complements and reinforces the Christ-centered environments of the families at home.
