Thank you for your interest in North River Christian Academy! It is a privilege to share why NRCA is so unique and well-suited for families who are looking for a Christ-centered school community with a commitment to academic excellence. Our mission at NRCA is to assist Christian families in educating, equipping, and encouraging their children to inﬂuence the world for Christ. Our primary purpose at NRCA is to glorify God, through His son Jesus Christ, in all we do.
At North River, perhaps the first thing one will notice is our loving staff, each of whom has been called to transformative teaching to serve children and families. With an average of over 16 years of classroom experience, our teaching staff is a body of highly trained, exceptional educators who provide a nurturing learning environment with high-level instruction geared for 21st century learners.
We are committed to providing an exemplary education in a safe, Christian atmosphere, an atmosphere that supports family values and helps develop strong, Christian character in our students. We believe in educating the whole child by providing enrichment opportunities beyond the classroom in the areas of music, art enrichment, drama, and physical education. Additionally, first-hand learning experiences enhance our curriculum; from local visits to museums, STEAM labs, and local businesses, our students gain perspective of our world that is founded on biblical principles.
Scripture teaches the importance of loving our neighbor; therefore, shepherding our children to develop compassion for others is a key aspect of our mission. Our students have numerous experiences and opportunities related to mission work, service and helping others. Each grade engages in age-appropriate mission projects such as packing boxes for Operation Christmas Child, local and global mission projects, and collecting coats and shoes for those in need.
Your experience at NRCA will be like a fountain of life in the heart of your child that will serve as a river from which his or her life will flow. I invite you to explore the possibilities of what a Christ-centered education could mean for your children and your family. On behalf of North River Christian Academy, I welcome you!
