Northside is the best school ever. People might be mean and people might pick but we are all friends and family through Christ and it is definitely better than any public school you wil ever send your child to. I love Northside and I can't wait to keep seeing it grow through the years. Even though yeah we did lose a Principal and a pastor but like the Bible says, God has it all in his hands and It is all in his will. God is in our school and Is doing great things in it every day. I hope that you will read this and want to send your child to NCA. They love every person and will teach your child the right from wrong and will help them grow year after year.

Uhhhh I don't know who you are but Northside is a really good school and I'm so glad I'm and eagle instead of a hurricane an out principal didnt harass girls so get your facts right Northside is the best private school in Northern Florida in my opinion the staff is nice the teachers want to help you the sports are great and I feel safe and sound at Northside

Northside is falling apart. I attended Northside a few years and it has done nothing but go "down-hill". Majority of the highschool staff is quitting, the Principal was asked to step down because he harrassed girls, and now the Preacher has resigned.. (probably because of how terrible every thing has gotten). Do not send your kids here.

This is our family's third year with Northside Christian Academy. The faculty and staff truly love their jobs and the students. They encourage the children to grow academically, spiritually, & athletically. The school is very well run. I would highly reccommend this school to anyone looking for a top rate place to educate their children.

I graduated in 2010 with the Honors Diploma and a Bright Futures Scholarship (which covers most of my tuition at SFC). I feel that I was adequately prepared for college with the education I received from NCA. The teachers and principal are always willing to help and the staff receive administrative support in their decisions, which is nice because a lot of teachers in public schools don't have that support. Northside is growing, and so are their programs. This year they're offering six man tackle football. I am very excited about watching some of those games :) I had a positive experience, and I hope yours is as well.

This has to be one of the greatest facilities out there. The faculty actually care about each child; and it shows. My child has absolutely excelled.... Keep up the great work!

They not only teach biblical and educational skills. They also help to develop character

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
