About Northside Christian Academy

In September of 2011, Northside Christian Academy opened it's doors as a ministry of Northside Baptist Church. Northside Christian Academy is the result of much prayer, fasting, and vision on the part of those whom God called to launch a distinctively different Christian school in the Lexington Community. The school was birthed on the behalf of the children and families in Lexington and the greater Columbia area, in order that they may Believe, Defend, and Proclaim the TRUTH of Jesus Christ.

We believe that by God's divine providence the school has come into existence. God began a work by planting seeds in the hearts of a high school student, a pastor, and three moms. In God's perfect timing He would weave these lives together to begin an incredible journey. Jeremiah 33:3 says, "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." Almost two years ago we began to call to God for a Christian school in Lexington, South Carolina.

We formed a team of prayer warriors and began to meet and pray. Although our faith has been tested along the way, God has been "Faithful and True" (Revelation 19:11). The valleys have been exalted and the mountains have been brought low; the crooked places have been made straight and the rough places smooth, so that the glory of the LORD may be revealed... (Isaiah 40:4-5).

God has made the impossible possible!

The very heartbeat of Northside Christian Academy is to have a distinct and lasting effect upon our community and our nation. Our mission is to assist parents in providing a wholly Christian Education so that their children are rooted and grounded in a biblical worldview. As you work through this website, we believe you will see the difference that a Northside Christian Academy education will make.

The journey has just begun, and we are confident of this, that He who begins a good work, will complete it (Philippians 1:6). We serve a Great and Mighty God to Whom we give all the glory and praise!

May God richly bless you and your family; "so generations to come might know Him..." Psalm 78:4.

Here are the testimonies of families who have already been positively affected by their association with Northside Christian Academy.

I have two children who attend elementary school at Northside Christian Academy. We have had the privilege of calling NCA "our school" for the past three years. I can honestly say Northside has been a tremendous blessing to our family. The staff members and teachers are carefully selected to meet the high standards of Northside. They each have a genuine love for the Lord & for the students. I have said many times that as you enter the school and walk the halls, "there is a sweet spirit in the air." Each morning when I drop my children off I have the confidence that they will be prayed over & loved on throughout the day. The size of the classrooms at NCA allows for each child to get individual attention. NCA offers high academic standards but most importantly it teaches children from a Godly perspective and not a worldly perspectly. Northside reinforces daily the biblical values that we strive to teach our childen. My two children accepted the Lord & were baptized at NCA. This is the kind of school I want to be a part of and invest in!! I would highly recommend you visiting NCA, meeting our staff, & visiting our classrooms.

From the moment we stepped foot in Northside, we knew this is where God wanted our children to attend school. And since that very first day, we have been continually blown away at the education our children are getting, but more than that, by the amount of love they receive on a daily basis, and the spiritual growth they've had in just a year of being at NCA. We feel very blessed and humbled to be a part of such an amazing school and we are looking forward to watching our children grow at Northside!
