diploma and graduation cap


With over half of the classes filled to capacity each year, admission can be very competitive. For classes that are not full, the Admissions Team decides which applicants will be admitted based on the applicant's file and academic record. However, for classes that have more applicants than there are vacancies, an anonymous Admissions Committee will decide which applicants will be admitted.

The primary factor the Admissions Team will consider when granting admission is the academic record of the applicant. Once the applicant has met the academic and character standards required for acceptance to NCA, the following factors may also be considered by the Admission Team prior to making their recommendation:

  • Date of Application
  • Siblings are in attendance at Northside
  • Child of a Northside employee
  • Exemplary Christian Behavior
  • Superior Academic Achievement
