NorthBay’s mission is to support Christian families in spiritually and academically equipping students to take their places in the world as servants of Jesus Christ.
A SCHOOL BASED ON BIBLICAL TRUTH
We believe the precepts of God’s Word set the absolute standard to which we are to train our children. All the teaching at NCA complements what is taught in God’s Word.
A SCHOOL WITH STRONG PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT
We believe parents are the God-ordained trainers of their children. Therefore, our teachers and administrators function as a support to the parents of NCA students.
A SCHOOL WITH FAMILIES SHARING COMMON VALUES
Parents at NCA participate in the Growing Kids God’s Way curriculum and prayerfully work at living out the biblical precepts in their homes. These values include teaching children respect for authority, elders, peers, property and nature. Participating in the same curriculum provides an excellent means of communication between parents, teachers, and students.
A SCHOOL WITH STUDENTS WHO ARE PREPARED TO SUCCEED
Sharing similar convictions on biblical standards in the home produces a more efficient educational environment in the classroom. Parents who teach their children the importance of respect and self-control prepare their children to succeed in school.
A SCHOOL OF ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE
We pursue academic excellence through a classical education based on a biblical worldview, a strong emphasis on the fundamentals of education, and a classroom with fewer students. Our objective is for our teachers and curriculum to develop in our students a love of learning and a desire to strive for excellence.
A SCHOOL OF SPIRITUAL TRAINING
NorthBay Christian Academy has a strong emphasis on spiritual training that focuses on reaching the hearts of the students. Our primary desire is for each student to have a personal, saving relationship with Jesus Christ. Furthermore, our goal is for the students to love God’s word and His wisdom, not just know it. We desire for them to experience the biblical concept that “iron sharpens iron,” with older students modeling spiritual maturity for the younger students.
A SCHOOL WITH CHARACTER TRAINING
NCA reinforces character training that is already taking place in the home. Preschool and kindergarten students participate in Bible classes that teach the importance of attentiveness, obedience, gratefulness, generosity, honesty, love, forgiveness, courage, and integrity. NorthBay continues to emphasize these character traits as students progress to the upper grades.
A SCHOOL OF MORAL INNOCENCE
We desire our students to have a healthy naiveté, or lack of exposure to material that could force them out of childhood prematurely and rush them into adulthood. Families at NorthBay Christian Academy participate in the Reflections of Moral Innocence curriculum. Our school leaves the teaching of human sexuality to the parents.
A SCHOOL WITH FACULTY MEMBERS AS MENTORS
NorthBay’s teachers serve as mentors with exemplary, godly character, demonstrating excellence in their subject area and grade level taught.
