The Fine Arts program at Northside Christian Academy enables students to discover and develop their God-given talents. The motto for our Fine Arts Department is Soli Deo Gloria - To God alone be the glory. At Northside Christian Academy, the Fine Arts Department has its mission to prepare students to use their gifts and talents for God's glory. Because each student is uniquely gifted by God in areas of creativity, we desire to challenge and equip them to be their best for Him.

NCA provided me with an excellent education that was delivered with care and compassion. The staff took a genuine interest in my academic, personal, and spiritual growth. I feel that the personal attention I received helped to fortify in me a foundation of sympathy and empathy for others, which has helped me grow personally and professionally.
_Kelly Floyd, Founder & Physical Therapist at Elite Physical Therapy, NCA Alumna class of 1997
I could not be more thankful to the Lord for my time at Northside Christian Academy. I was not only able to learn how to become a better student or athlete, but I was also able to see tremendous testimonies for Christ in how I should live my life. Even now that I am a working professional, I can fondly look back at my educational, athletic, and life experience at Northside as a time period that really helped shape my work ethic and character in was that has led to future success in college, my career, and in how I live my life in striving to glorify Christ.
Beginning in grade 6 and continuing through the final years of high school, Northside students have the opportunity to be a part of a band program that offers an excellent foundation in instrumental music. Students may develop the ability to play an instrument, read musical notation, understand the cultural relevance of musical education, and have opportunities to perform in public settings in order to refine their musical skills.
NCA Band students have performed at various venues in the community as well as at Disney World, Carowinds, and the Southern Christmas show. We believe that God has given us music as a means of worshiping and praising Him, therefore instrumental music in the Christian school should challenge students to higher levels of accomplishments as this gift of music is offered back to God, as a sacrifice of praise.
Students at Northside Christian Academy have the opportunity to be involved in various drama events during the course of the school year. Plays and musical theater are a part of the school year, and many students take advantage of this outlet to learn poise and self-confidence in performing before an audience. Participation in theater can be demanding, but one our students' most rewarding activities. Often, memories (and friendships) are made for a lifetime.
We believe that the skill of communication is a gift from God, and learning to demonstrate good skills in this area ultimately glorifies the God of Creation. In recent years NCA students have performed:
- Pinnochio (Elementary)
- The Jungle Book (Elementary)
- Lion King Kids (Elementary)
- The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (Elementary)
- Aladdin (Middle School)
- Little Woman (High School)
- The Prince & The Pauper (Middle School)
- Fiddler on the Roof (Middle & High School)
- Flapper! (High School)
- The King & I (High School)
- The Hidding Place (High School)
- Oklahoma! (High School)
Northside Christian Academy students are provided with the opportunity to creatively express themselves through the medium of Visual Art. Realizing that our students are beings crafted in the image of a brilliant Creator, the Visual Arts department remains a pillar in our Fine Arts program. Paired with the understanding of the history of art, students develop, hone and ultimately master their fine motor skills into visual works that bring glory to God. Our Visual Arts students have excelled in this area and have demonstrated a deep understanding of art, not only in theory, but also in practice - well beyond their grade levels.
NCA Visual Arts students have consistently received superior ratings on their submissions for competition and portfolio critiques. Our students who pursue degrees in the visual arts are extremely prepared for their coursework at the next level, having received training in collegiate level and advanced techniques. We credit the ability to create and to demonstrate fine craftsmanship as a reflection of a God who is the source of all creativity and imagination.
