Founded in 1970, North Creek Preschool offers a Christian environment with age-appropriate activities to foster growth and development. Balancing childhood-initiated play and teacher-directed learning activities, the Preschool encourages independent thinking, experimentation and problem-solving. 

 

‘The  curriculum is based on the Bible's monthly verses that help children learn who God is and how He wants us to treat others. The program features include interest centers, introduction to phonics, language development, small-group-oriented learning, and motor-perceptual exercises and small-scale motor skills.

 

Since 1999, the Academy has provided a distinctly different Christian education through its classical approach, emphasizing the mastery of basics through songs, poems, songs and other valuable tools for memory. While rich in language arts and history, which are at the heart of classical education, the Academy has placed a strong emphasis on math and science curricula – ensuring a rigorous, well-rounded education. 

 

Beyond the Bible as a course of study , the school tries to integrate the Word of God into all the subjects of the program. Enrichment education is also an essential part of their classical approach.  All students receive instruction from specialized teachers in music (choral and instrumental), art and PE, as well as Latin, which begins in second grade. Small class sizes in all grades enable staff to teach students, not merely manage them.

 

Junior High students continue to benefit from small class sizes under faculty members who teach from areas of passion and strength. The core curriculum for junior highs includes the Bible (systematic study of the Word of God), Latin, History, Language Arts (including classical literature and emphasis on writing skills), Science , and Mathematics. In order to further address the classical point of view, students also receive formal logic training, P.E., and enrich elective choices such as debate, band and other fine arts disciplines. Junior High staff work closely as a team to provide student guidance, to ensure balanced student workloads and to foster best practice in the classroom.

 

In addition to a rich core curriculum, the student body participates in such annual events as the Science Fair, Geography Bee and a variety of service projects. Student government, league debates and athletics, as well as diverse socials, are offered to provide our students with opportunities to grow well beyond the scope of the classroom.

Cross Country, girls of slow pitch softball and boys of flag football are played in the fall, boys and girls of basketball are played in the winter, soccer and volleyball are offered to both boys and girls in the spring. The athletes participate in their sport three days a week, including two games and a practice session. Teams will participate in the league tournament at the end of the season, depending on their league record.

 

The North Creek Academy Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program. As such, TK focuses on developmentally appropriate, engaging hands-on learning activities that prepare the child to thrive in the next year's kindergarten. Within this nurturing environment, attention is paid to the development of the child as a whole, including "academic" skills such as letter and number recognition, as well as social and emotional development, language development, attention span, ability to thrive within the classroom structure, and fine, gross and visual motor skills. TK is designed to help children build trust, independence and a Christian character.
