"The PTF International Day event this year was a wonderful, fun, and informative event! Thank you to our school leaders, PTF, teachers, and staff, as well as parents who participated in this event/celebration and made it happen! It was a joy seeing students asking questions, playing with some of the displayed musical instruments, exploring & learning at each table. I loved visiting each table and learning about everyone's culture and history. May God bless you all and your families. Thank you, Northshore Christian Academy."

I love the Christ-centered focus of NCA. I also really like the variety of different programs the kids get to be involved with, like music, Spanish, PLTW, etc.

The diversity and inclusion. I love watching how all the children in my daughter's class have built a special family like bond with one another.

Mindy S.
Parent

The music program is far and beyond any other elementary or middle school in the area. Lisa Walchenbach has been instrumental in my son’s life as has the band instructor, Jen Hansen. The loving demeanors they emanate is evident by the way the interact with the kids.

Chris S.
Parent

"As parents, we would like to take this prospect to thank the teachers for their continuous care, support, collaboration, and most importantly patience. We have witnessed massive and exponential development in my daughter. She is so blessed to have teachers like you. Thanks for your endurance, quality care, enthusiasm, diligent efforts and passion you provide each and every day. "
