Academic Vision

 

Thank you for your interest in North Pole Christian School. Your desire for a quality Christian education falls in line with the purpose of North Pole Christian School. Our goal is to provide a quality Christian education which, in co-operation with Christian parents, will train children in harmony with God's Word and encourage a personal faith in God. We believe the successful development of each child's spiritual and academic potential is promoted by a combined effort of the Christian home, Bible-believing church and school.

 

“Christian Schools strengthen CHARACTER and build CONFIDENCE. Building a child’s intellect is important, but strengthening his character and building genuine confidence is the highest of all priorities.”

As an interdenominational school, North Pole Christian School serves students in preschool through eight-grade from a variety of area churches. We use the A-Beka curriculum along with ACSI, Saxon, Purposeful Design, and Bob Jones in a traditional classroom setting. We are also a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). ACSI is an organization of Bionically based Christian schools and colleges whose mission is to provide leadership, programs and services in order to bring about excellence in private schools to the glory of God.
