Wonderful Christian school! Amazing teachers that authentically care for students academically and spiritually. Principal / superintendent has a heart and passion for Christian education and for the kids that is seen and felt. Feels like a "family" of believers and very welcoming. We have 3 children attending that have connected with their friends and love the school. We couldn't be happier! What a way to invest in your child.

Northland Christian High School joined with Life Christian Academy in 2007 to become Northland Christian Education System. Both of my kids started in kindergarten at LCA and both will have graduated from NCES come May. NCES' vision is to teach kids how to learn, love and lead the world to Christ. NCES desires to partner with Christian families and churches to provide a God-centered, discipleship based school with academic excellence and a biblical worldview. NCES is a safe, loving and caring place for kids to learn how to deal with what life throws at them. Pleawe go to for more information.

I've had children in every grade 2nd through 8th and have never been disappointed. The teachers love Christ and love the kids. Academic programs are generally strong. Music, art, and some sports are available - all are run extremely well. The principal and vice principal are extremely involved and always accessible. Parental involvement is encouraged.

My daughter started kindergarten at Life Christian Academy in 2000. My son started in 2003 and they both will continue to attend school there. It's not only a great school academically the kids are spiritually fed as well. The teachers are wonderful and there is a very high moral standard. If you want your children to recieve a quality christian education this is a great school to consider.

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.
