Cost

NorthSide Baptist Academy does not operate as a for profit business but rather functions as an extension of the ministry of NorthSide Baptist Church.   Our educational program is priced very competitively with other programs in our area.  You can find our pricing at the following link: Tuition

 

Enrollment Process

The enrollment process at NorthSide Baptist Academy is as streamlined as possible.  We have a three step program that begins with the scheduling of a school tour and parent/student interview, and then a completed application and enrollment fee, and finally completing the acceptance package.

 

Teacher to Student Ratio

NorthSide Baptist Academy strives to maintain a student to teacher ratio of 12 to 1.  Due to the varying needs of each grade we structure the ratio accordingly.

 

Lunch Program

NorthSide Baptist Academy operates a lunch program that is fresh, nutritious, and minimal in cost.  The lunch program is not subsidized, and therefore NSBA must share the expense with the student.  Menus are available on MySchoolWorx, and invoices are sent out on Fridays due by the 1st of the next month.  Due to operations, reimbursements are not provided for absences.

 

Special Needs/Accommodation

NorthSide Baptist Academy strives to make every accommodation necessary to provide an appropriate educational environment.  However, at this time we are not able to accommodate every need for our members or the public due to budgetary constraints or limited qualified personnel.

 

Calendar

NorthSide Baptist Academy operates on a modified year-round school calendar.  The academic year is divided into 4 nine week quarters, that are separated by at least one full week between quarters.  There is a two week break for Christmas & Spring Break and the summer has an 8 to 10-week break.  

 

School Day

NorthSide Baptist Academy operates on a daily schedule of 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.  Students may be dropped off as early as 7:30 and picked up as late as 3:30 pm without additional fees.

Teacher Certification

NorthSide Baptist Academy strives to provide the best qualified teachers and personnel to provide for the Christian education of our children.  Our teachers excel in personal character and morality as they are seeking to be like the Lord.  Elementary and Secondary teachers are educated in their particular area of expertise to provide mastery learning in subject.

 

Accreditation

Students completing NorthSide Baptist Academy will graduate having completed the Foundations High School Program along with Endorsements and Distinguished Level Requirements.  This, along with appropriate SAT and ACT test scores, will allow our students the opportunity to be accepted to any college or university, including the United States Military Academy and Naval Academy.  NorthSide Baptist Academy does not currently seek or desire accreditation from any accrediting source.

 

Early-College Opportunities

Students may have an opportunity to enroll in Early-College depending upon their current body of credits.

Each family will be required to acknowledge our statement of faith and agree to not promote any ideal contrary to our statement of faith within NSBA.  We wholeheartedly believe in individual soul-liberty (the right for each to choose their beliefs), but collectively as NorthSide Baptist Church we have joined together to promote and teach this Statement of Faith.  

 

Discipline Policy

NorthSide Baptist Academy is committed to assisting the home with the education of their children.  We desire to work with the home to establish an appropriate disciplinary procedure appropriate for each occasion.  Our desire is for parents to take the appropriate corrective action outside the classroom, while our teachers work to correct within the classroom.
