Location and History
The NORTH SPENCER CHRISTIAN ACADEMY was established in February, 1979. The membership of Bible Baptist Church of North Spencer unanimously voted to open the Academy in September of 1979 and elected a Board of Education. Mrs. Anita Lockwood, Mrs. Joyce Pasto, Mr. Daniel Wagner, Mrs. Jean Wetherbee, and Mrs. Josephine Wilson served on the first Board under the guidance of Pastor Homer Wetherbee. The doors opened on September 5, 1979, with an enrollment of 28 children in Grades K-6. Anticipating future growth, the new building was completed in 1982. In September of that year, the doors opened to eighty-five students in grades K-10. In November, a preschool program was started. By June, 1983, 92 students were enrolled. The first graduating senior was honored at graduation services in June, 1985. The enrollment over the next two years was 100+ including the preschool. All of the second floor classrooms, the science lab, restrooms, gym, stage and kitchen were completed for use by the 1985-86 school year. Currently, NSCA has a student body of approximately a hundred students, in Nursery to Twelfth grade.
The school is located at 721 Ithaca Road outside the rural village of Spencer, NY along Routes 34 and 96.
