Northern Discovery Academy exists to partner with parents, to educate and disciple children consistent with a biblical worldview for the purpose of equipping them to flourish as God intended for the rest of their lives. Our instructors seek to ignite in each student a love for learning and a passion to follow Christ with their whole heart. Our unique model allows students to immerse in active learning experiences that connect with them personally. We want our students to make memories around each experience. These memory-making experiences are the best way to create lasting change, impart knowledge, and create a lifelong learner.
Most importantly, each class is designed to reveal the truth about God, His creation, and His Kingdom, and create lifelong learners that can ably discern, articulate, and defend truth to the glory of God.

Kids learn best by exploring, discovering, doing, trying, experimenting, and creating. Every day, that's what they'll be doing!
Real and living books, journal-keeping, try-it-yourself experiences, and nature study -- it engages every student, no matter what their learning style.
Kids will dive into new life experiences from forge to farm to fort and beyond! Expect them to come home with dirty hands and big smiles!
The tall trees and green forest on our wooded campus provide up-close opportunities to see nature at work every season of the year.
Students develop deep friendships and receive personal instruction because classes are small. Plus, they'll love our relaxed environment!
Not only do instructors mentor students, but kids have the opportunity to serve one another and learn leadership and service skills.
School is in session just four days a week, with one fifth day a month dedicated to interactive projects, sim labs, or field trips.
Family time is at a premium. Our daily schedule includes time for students to finish most or all of their independent work, if they work diligently.
School begins at 8:30 am, but students can arrive as soon as 8:00 to fit your family's schedule. Our four-day schedule provides you with a family day!
Why pack a lunch? Students can purchase lunch items if you're in a hurry, or if a lunch is left behind at home -- or just add a fun lunch item!
We know how busy you are. So we don't schedule evening school events that are required, and we work with families to find parent chaperones for our field trips.
Kids get out every day for recess, and can play group games in our large, open playground. Students enjoy PE twice each week.
History and culture studies allow kids to put the human experience into perspective. We produce our own curriculum for a top-notch education.
With phonics instruction for young learners, grammar and writing for grades 3-12, each level is linked to our humanities studies topics.
Science studies feature plenty of active learning, while math for each grade is connected to real life, real thinking, and made relevant to their experience.
School days are filled with real experiences that make memories. Whether it is building forts, blasting rockets, creating plays, enjoying the woods and more. Students will also enjoy unique class options to open up world to them.
Students will learn to identify and understand the Christian, as well as secular and religious worldviews, and how each aligns with God's Word. Students will be equipped to take these abstract truths and see how integral they are to their everyday life.
Students learn many skills through serving others and taking on age-appropriate responsibilities. Relationships are at the very center of our lives and students are coached and mentored through relational conflict and how to work well with others in a variety of contexts.
