Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"As an integral part of the ministry of NorthCreek Church of Walnut Creek, the purpose of NorthCreek Academy is to glorify God by providing a biblically-based classical education within a nurturing environment committed to the development of Godly Christian character and academic excellence. The thoughtful integration of biblical truth into every facet of daily school life will empower students to learn, interpret, and discern all of life from a Christian world view. Our ultimate goal is spiritual instruction equipping each child to possess the moral strength, biblical insight, and academic integrity to live a Christian life in a joyous, responsible, effective manner.
