School Structure

Interim Head of School

Pam Jackson, Interim Head of School

Hello families! 26 years ago, I started my educational journey when my children, Kaylene and Christopher, began attending NCA in 1996 as Kindergarten and Preschool students. I loved being a part of the NCA community so much that it led met to the decision to become a teacher. I had an AA degree, so I went back to night school to get my teaching degree from Western Washington University, with the support of my husband David, and while volunteering at NCA. I graduated in June 2000 with my Bachelor of Arts in Education and Teaching Certificate, and that Fall I began teaching 1st grade at NCA.

My experience at NCA includes:

  • NCA Parent (11 years)
  • 1st Grade Teacher (12 years)
  • Programs Supervisor and Director of Operations (8 years in concert with other positions): Development and oversight of NCA’s Safety and Security, and Arrival and Dismissal plans; Supervising the Academy’s 20+ Educational Assistants, and Extended Care Program and staff; Development and supervision of the Summer Program and staff; Executive Team Member, and Liaison to the Facilities Department.
  • PreK-5th Assistant Principal & Director of Operations (4 years)
  • PreK-8th Assistant Principal & Director of Operations (1 year)
  • PreK-2nd Principal & Director of Operations (2 years)

Through these experiences, I believe that God has prepared me well to fill the position of Interim Head of School at NCA, as well as continuing my PreK-2nd Principal position. God’s plans and timing are perfect, and as such I will minister to our students, families, and staff by reinforcing the knowledge that He is in control and that NCA is a place where God’s love and faithfulness are exemplified in all that we do. I look forward to this upcoming year with our “Eyes on Jesus”!

The Superintendent is a non-voting member of the School Board and is part of the Executive Team at Northshore Christian Church.

School Board Committee

The purpose of the School Board Chair is to make broad-based school policy decisions regarding the school. The committee consists of 2 church elders, NCA parents who are also members of Northshore Christian Church, and other NCC participating members who have experience in education. The Board Chair reports to the church Elder Board.

Northshore Christian Academy is a ministry of Northshore Christian Church (NCC).  As such, the school is accountable to the leadership of the church, which is the Elder Board.  The Elder Board consists of 5 to 10 nominated NCC Members, including the Senior Pastor. The Elder Board has delegated the school oversight and policy-making decisions to the School Board Committee.
