During the Christmas season, we celebrate the birth of Christ with large grade-level or multi-grade-level performances. This is a wonderful time to share the gospel with family and friends. Students enjoy performing at these Christmas concerts which are webcast for the world to see. Band, orchestra and choir students, comprised of 5th-8th-grade students, have several performance opportunities as well. They participate in the Fall, Winter, and Spring Concerts in addition to performances at chapels and venues outside of NCA throughout the school year.

At Northshore Christian Academy, Music Education is a priority. Our Music Department teaches music theory and musical concepts, exposes students to styles of music and composers, and spends time practicing for music performances. NCA provides performance opportunities for every grade level.
Many studies indicate that students who participate in music develop a greater language capacity and greater ability to learn a new language. Students also gain a wider perspective on cultural history as they are exposed to music from various cultures. Mathematical, linguistic and spatial intelligence, as well as interpersonal skills, are enhanced through participation in music programs. Music education will always be a part of our commitment at NCA to provide a superior Christian education.

”My children are at NCA for a Christian education and I am pleased with this. I do believe NCA does live their mission out and partners with parents to provide a well-rounded Christian education. Leadership is approachable and caring. We have had some very caring and nurturing teachers.”
“I love how God is in everything you do at NCA. I love that my kids are being loved on by teachers that love Jesus and they are being prayed for at school. So much of their time is spent at school, so it is nice to know that what we teach them at home is being reinforced and taught to them at school too.”
“God is first in every aspect of school and values are very clear. The caring and loving teachers and administration. Problems are handled with grace and encouragement and understanding.”
