General School Mission

"The Foundation is God
Northwest Christian Academy's educational philosophy is founded in God, His character and His truth. We seek to take children beyond knowledge to wisdom. (Proverbs 4:5) True wisdom is founded in a right understanding of God. Reverence for God is the beginning of wisdom. (Proverbs 1:7) It is the aim of the school to draw children into a right relationship with God. God has revealed himself through the Bible, Jesus Christ and His Creation. (Romans 1:20; 1 Timothy 1:10) We hold the Bible as the standard of truth by which we are held accountable. It shows us the person of Jesus Christ and outlines a right understanding of Creation.
God Reveals Himself in Scripture
Biblical understanding is foundational to every area of the curriculum. For example, understanding that God created order from chaos in Genesis 1 tells us that God is a God of order. This truth is the foundation of all mathematical and scientific study. NCA does not divide the curriculum into the secular and the spiritual. We hold that all truth is God's truth. (Proverbs 3: 19-20) We do not seek to add on a Bible verse at the end of a lesson. True Biblical integration is the teaching of all truth from a Biblical perspective, integrating into each subject the nature and character of God. This means that each teacher has a personal responsibility to be an imitator of Christ and model an authentic Christian life before the students.
