This school has made a definite difference in my childs education. The caring, helpful atmosphere is a total turn around from what we experienced in the public school system! this private christian educational experience may not be for every child, but it has been a life saver for miune!

Northside Christian Academy in Carthage Texas is a wonderful school. My daughter went into the 8th grade at northside after going to public school through 7th grade. She loves it. Said she wouldn't go back to public school for anything now! My son started Kindergarten at Northside and we have nad nothing but success. The staff are great and there is always something going on to keep the kids busy and challenged. My daughter plays volleyball and my son loves participating in the spring and Christmas music shows. It's just great!

I have a nephew that attedns NCA and I see how the school has made a difference in his life. The teachers take the time to help him achieve his highest potential. They love him and have taught him God's love. My child starts school next year and there is no other place I would send him.

As the principal of the school, I will stand firm that Christian Education will take the child as far as needed in life. I have my son enrolled at this school, and I know his academic foundation is being filled and will prosper in the future as well. We offer sports, music, drama, and Bible as a foundation of activities. Every students has the opportunity to invest their interest in all those choices mentioned. The core of Northside's academic is it will be in a numerical order of pace subjects. We require a 80 and above as passing and if the student does not pass, they must repeat this pace. This allows the student to understand the material before moving forward. We require monthly scriptures, 3 paces in every subject per 9 week quarter, plus the grade must be a 89 or above for Honor Roll. In His Service Venita Judice

The academic education is not the main focus of this school. The main focus is the Christian education, which although important, will not carry the child into the future in the way that their academic education will. It is the job of parents and teachers to create educated leaders and this school is not pushing that at all.

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.
