Through courses

BUZZ is our learning management system (LMS). This is where all of our courses are located. With interactive assignments, such as discussion boards, students can communicate and provide feedback to their fellow classmates in a safe environment.

Through chat

Microsoft TEAMS is the central hub for all things connection! Students can chat, have video calls, participate in contests, explore their interests, and meet other students from all over the world! Microsoft Outlook is where you will send emails to teachers and friends. On top of that, you can also schedule meetings, add contacts, and customize your font and signature!

In person

Just because NSA is an online school doesn’t mean that we don’t make REAL WORLD connections. Through NSA meetups, mission trips, or even our graduation ceremony each year, there are plenty of opportunities for paths to cross so you can meet some familiar faces in person!



StuCo works year round to host activities and events to help students feel comfortable & connected. Gain leadership experience by being elected or appointed to officer and grade representative positions.

NSA Connects are live sessions that students attend for credit towards their core courses. From trivia to faith to being a good communicator, these sessions are an incredible resource for expanding your learning!


We love a good celebration! Don’t be surprised if you see an announcement for a school dance (yes, we said dance) or a pie contest! A few other favorites include music, art, photography, & our signature NSA’s Got Talent!
