High academics and acquired technology skills wrapped in a Christian worldview will prepare NorthStar middle grade students for upcoming high school courses. Students will see different perspectives on various topics as they participate in discussions with students from around the world. While academics are paramount, NSA middle grade students also have opportunities for social development. Students are able to make international friends and participate in Bible studies and groups with students who have similar interests.
Every Christian should desire to become like Christ. Students will gain an understanding of introductory Christian doctrine, including salvation, the study of the Bible, and the power of prayer. Students will learn how to live out their love for God and share Him with others.
This course is designed to develop students as readers and writers. Students learn from multiple texts and communicate their learning through well-crafted sentences, paragraphs, and essays. Developing vocabulary and language skills will assist students’ growth as readers and writers.
Our Pre-algebra and Algebra 1 courses help students explore algebraic concepts through daily lessons that include teacher notes and videos, practice, application, and review. Students are regularly required to reflect on the concepts they are learning, to explain their work, and communicate their understanding of key concepts.
Students will use labs, quests, and creative projects to learn about earth science, biology, and physical science. These courses focus on critical thinking with guidance while applying concepts that students have learned to real-world situations.
In social studies courses, students will use reading and comprehension, creativity, and critical thinking skills to understand global perspectives in modern world history, U.S. history, and world leadership.
Electives generally fall outside of the core academic subject areas. In order to graduate from NorthStar Academy, a student must have earned the required number of elective credits. Electives may reflect a student’s interests, introduce or improve skills, or be directly related to a career direction.
