We May Be a Fit for You


If Your Student Is a Unique Individual

Yes, all students are unique, which makes us wonder who wouldn't want to hang out with us!  In spite of this, most schools treat students as if they were all alike, when some students wish they had more quiet time for reading, and others squirm and need to be active.  Some students could use extra work in a certain subject area, while others thrive when assigned extra challenges.  Here at Northern, your student receives an education that meets their unique needs.  

Check out our "Unique Learning Model" page to discover more.


If You Want a School That Values Family Time

Some schools seem to figure that school is the center of your family life.  They over-schedule homework, plump up school event calendars, and rope you into school fundraisers.  We figure school is supposed to support your family life, and that perspective affects what we do -- and what we don't do.  We're here to partner with you to enrich your family life.

Check out our Current Year page for our school calendar.


If You Desire the Benefits of Homeschooling

Northern offers many of the benefits of homeschooling in a school setting. These include a rich education from a Christian worldview, small class sizes, personalized learning experiences, and active, life-skills focused instruction. We provide a relaxed school environment that helps students do their best work, and focus on maturing students through mentoring and leadership.
