Northshore Christian Academy - Fine Arts, STEM, Faith

Northshore Christian Academy (NCA) exemplifies quality Christian education steeped in the tradition of faith, character, dynamic academics, robust fine-arts training, and innovative STEM education for all grades. From its humble warehouse beginnings it has rapidly grown in size and now located near the Everett aerospace corridor. Through dynamic, well-rounded K-8 instruction, collaborative partnerships, and vibrant school culture NCA fosters an environment where students thrive in faith, Fine Arts, STEM, community engagement, caring culture, and academic achievement.

The K-8 academic program is marked by innovative instruction, data informed learning, classroom technology tools, opportunities for advancement and collaborative teaching teams. All academics are interwoven and filtered through Christian faith instruction, daily Bible classes, chapel, caring culture and community service projects. The STEM program offers weekly K-8 engineering classes in the dedicated engineering and science labs. Math instruction offers early advancement. Science and math learning come alive in the engineering lab by tackling real life problems.

Fine arts and foreign languages are cornerstones of NCA. K-4 music education includes annual performance concerts, musical plays, chapel presentations and afterschool lessons. All 5th-8th graders participate in one or more of the sixteen bands, orchestras, choirs, art, chapel, or drama classes. In 1st-8th grade, Foreign Language instruction (Spanish, German, Mandarin) and the public speaking program build communication skills.

Vibrant community engagement includes 18 PTF (PTA) leaders facilitating a large volunteer community. NCA values their diverse population by hosting PTF Family Connection groups including Korean, Filipino, Spanish, African, Chinese, and Slavic Family Connections. All meet regularly with school leaders to build relationships, deepen faith, broaden understanding, and enhance the school community. Partnering with parents in a Christ-centered environment cultivates robust student growth at NCA.
