FAQS

Northshore Christian Academy Summer Enrichment Classes

What About COVID-19?

We take the health of our families and staff very seriously! Students will go through a Health Check-In before class just like they have this school year, social distancing will be observed, and all students and staff will wear masks.

What if my student is already enrolled in the Summer Program?

No problem! A staff member will escort them to their class and back to the Summer Program after class is over.

Are non-Academy students allowed to enroll?

Yes! You do not need to attend NCA in order to sign up for enrichment classes, so invite your friends and family!

What if I want to cancel?

If for any reason you wish to un-enroll your student from a class, we require at minimum, a week’s notice prior to the first class session. Any cancellation after that date will not be eligible for a refund. Thank you for understanding!

Are Private music lessons available over the summer?

Yes! Space is limited, but we currently have teachers available for both virtual and in-person lessons. Please contact Kyra York by email at kyork@nca.school if you are interested in lessons.
