"So many organizations don’t live up to their Mission Statements, but NCAP surpasses its mission where it counts – in the everyday interactions between students, parents, and faculty.

We have sent three distinct and independent kids to NorthCreek.  NorthCreek, in response, has cultivated each child differently.  Our children are definitely not widgets at NorthCreek.   

There are no sacred cows; the faculty is always trying to get better with input from parents and students.  This is the definition of good leadership."

"What stands out to me about NCA is the way the teachers shape the hearts of the children, while teaching them and interacting with them. My kids love school so much that even though they are on summer break, they are counting down the days until school starts again! Highly recommend this as a loving, safe, Christ centered learning environment."

Review from Facebook

"NorthCreek is a very special place, the relationship between teachers and students is very special. Small classroom sizes and structure help children realize their potentials. The faculty has done a great job driving distraction and outside influence out of the classroom leaving more time for focus on the classical christian education which includes Latin. This is my daughters second year and we are grateful to God for this school being in the East Bay. The success of NCA students along with the waiting list associated with this school should serve as a strong message that God and Education should never be separated but are one and the same."

"We transferred from a highly ranked elementary school in Walnut Creek for my older son's fourth grade class. Being an Asian, I was a little concerned as to how well my kids will get along with other kids in the school since the school is predominately white. But my kids were at ease very soon and he is totally enjoying his buddies at this school. The fourth grade teachers are excellent and taught him organizational skills as well as academic skills. The grammar and language arts are the strong points of this school. Math is comparable to the public schools although I would have preferred it to be more advanced. But I think what is most important is character development and a heart for God and that is why we chose NCA rather than move to San Ramon or Moraga."

Review from Yelp

"Great school. The teachers genuinely care about each student. I have three kids enrolled, and I can't imagine them being in a better place. With that said, know that they have very high standards for education. I have heard from others, with students that enter public high schools, that their kids are far better equipped for high school and college because of NCA's priorities. While other schools may just let your kids skate by, NCA challenges them to excel. The principle is awesome. Loves each and every student as if they were his own. There is also a Cafe on the campus, operated by the church. A great place to get a mocha after I drop off the kids."

Review from Yelp

"Northcreek is a classical education for our children. Students here are tops! Great speakers, well trained minds, disciplined work ethic, enthusiasm and spirit, hearts for service and justice.

NCA is top among the private schools in the area - most topping $20,000 per year.

Greg Steele, the Headmaster, is an inspiration to his teachers and the parents at the school.

We are truly blessed to have our children at the school and deeply thankful for the safe, loving, and challenging environment at NCA."
