Expected Schoolwide Learning Results

Consistent with our mission statement, we are committed to the education of the whole person. Our program strives to address all facets of our students' experience: academic, social, personal, and spiritual. We seek to provide our students with the tools and experiences needed to become informed and compassionate persons who are able to effect change in the world. 

The staff and administration developed the following sets of expectations of a NorthCreek Academy student.
