North Spencer Christian Academy exists to glorify God by providing academic excellence within a sound, Biblically integrated program, in order to assist parents and church in equipping students for Christian living and service in today’s changing world.
North Spencer Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic programs, and other school-administrated programs.
Our Board and Staff
The North Spencer Christian Academy Board of Education governs NSCA and consists of the pastor of North Spencer Baptist Church, members of the church, members from supporting area churches, and the School Administrator, who is an ex officio member.
Admissions. NSCA takes a two-fold approach to spiritual development in admissions. The focus of Nursery to Grade Eight is on evangelism–helping students develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. At entry into High School (9-12), the focus is on discipleship, so students admitted to High School must be followers of Christ by their own testimony and life. Students must be interviewed by the Administrator or Pastor before full acceptance as a student.
The North Spencer Christian Academy accepts students of all denominations (or no denomination) who demonstrate academic readiness and whose parents demonstrate a cooperative attitude with respect to our educational objectives. No student will be denied admission because of race, national or ethnic origin, color, or gender. Parents do not need to be members of Bible Baptist Church to send their children to NSCA.
A probationary period of six (6) weeks for all new students will be required for final appointment to grades. Notification of any grade change will be made following the probationary period.
New students will be accepted, all other things being equal, in order of receipt of application and fee.
KINDERGARTEN: A child entering the kindergarten program must be five years old on or before December 1 of the school year. At the time of enrollment, a copy the child’s birth certificate and immunization records from the doctor’s office must be turned into the NSCA office.
ADMISSION PROCEDURE: Parents must complete an Application Form and return it with a non-refundable $100.00 per student Tuition Deposit ($200 per family) before admission. Tuition Deposits are not refundable. Parents must fill out an application listing each eligible child. The Administrator may interview the applicant and parent before the application is approved.
A student attending NSCA for the first time in grades 1-12 may be tested for grade placement. Placement of a new student rests with the faculty and/or Administrator, however parents will be consulted.
All applicants to NSCA are provided a summary of the church Confession of Faith.
Homeschooling families may participate in certain in-school classes to support your own curricula. Physical Education, Music, Art, and Spanish are open to homeschooling students. See the forms and policy page for the tuition information. If you are interested in other upper-level classes such as Physics and Biology, with labs, please contact the NSCA Office at (607) 589-6366.
Extracurricular Activities. NSCA offers a variety of extracurricular activities throughout the year.
Various club activities are open to students after school. Yearbook, Dance, Archery, and Geography are several of the clubs often offered. We have taken part in the National Archery in Schools Program “NASP” for the last several years.
