Mission

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.

 Non-Discrimination  

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 consists of the pastor of North Spencer Baptist Church, five members of the church, two members from supporting area churches, and the School Administrator, who is an ex officio member. Current Board members are President Sandra Brown; Vice President Patricia Harmon; Sherland Decker; Patsy Stevens; Joyce Pasto; Daniel Hunt of the Candor Congregational Church; Paul Cody of First Baptist Church of West Danby; Administrator Dr. Guy Kinney, and Pastor Steve Barrows.

Admissions

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.  For that Statement, click here.

Extracurricular Activities.  NSCA offers a variety of extracurricular activities throughout the year.

Clubs

Various club activities are open to students after school.  Yearbook, Dance, Archery, and Geography are several of the clubs often offered.  We take part in the National Geographic Geography Bee each year as the culmination of Geography Club. 

Sports

We believe that God has created us to develop in body, mind, and soul.  Our Academic and Bible programs develop mind and soul, and our physical education and Sports programs develop the body.  A variety of sports are part of the PE program. One, the National Archery in Schools Program (NASP), teaches discipline, hand and eye coordination and muscle development.  For the last two years we have had students compete in the NYS NASP Tournament and each year a student has shot well enough to be invited to the NASP National Tournament in Lexington, KY.
Our seasonal sports teams are usually fall soccer, basketball, and spring volleyball.  For more information, please contact Miss Barber, the Athletic Director, at 589-6366.
