Uniforms are required at National Christian Academy's Elementary and Middle/High Schools. Our uniform policy helps equalize the learning environment. Uniform items must be purchased through the Flynn O'Hara Uniform Company. The school operates a “gently used” uniform swap called the Trading Post, where parents may trade uniform items.
National Christian Academy contracts with Karen's Catering for a hot lunch option. Parents may sign up monthly. Karen's works closely with school officials to provide a healthy, nutritious and flavorful lunches for students, and is responsive to student suggestions for change.
National Christian Academy uses Windows-based desktop computers on campus for Elementary and Middle/High School students. Topics covered include Internet safety, appropriate and ethical use of technology, PowerPoint, digital photography, video editing, use of Web 2.0 tools and information literacy. Both technology labs contain touch projectors and audio system for instruction and presentations. There are also smart computers for use in three additional classrooms outside of the computer lab.
National Christian Academy Middle/High school students are strongly motivated and organized to help others, and they do so through a combination of volunteer and fundraising efforts.
EXTENDED DAY/AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
National Christian Academy provides an extended day program to students who need to remain on campus after the regular school hours. Families may use the service for an affordable monthly fee. A dedicated staff plans activities and allows time for homework.
In addition to the extended day program, National Christian Academy offers several enrichment programs called ETC (Education That Continues), which includes a variety of classes such as karate, robotics, tennis and more. Students may also sign up for instrumental or voice instruction after school.
