Dear NCS Parents,

Re-enrollment for 2015-2016 is the week of February 2nd through the 6th.

During the first semester of this school year, NCS has exp6rienced students excelling in a host of areas. From wide-eyed preschool students advancing their active cognitive skills through a rich learning environment to driven high school students who are leading the way in academic successes, community involvement, fine arts performances, and athletic opportunities. I am both pleased and proud of the learning and applications our students are demonstrating.  These types of results have a direct impact on our enrollment. As a result, NCS’ enrollment numbers are robust resulting in several grade levels reaching maximum capacity.

I recently attended a school event when a parent leaned over and said to me, “Dr. James, I have one child almost graduating and then I get to do it all over again with my younger child. We love NCS”.  I hope that as NCS parents you feel the same way.  This past December I shared with the school family our Faculty and Staff Pledge to NCS Families. The 3rd and 5th Pledge items read: We the Northside Christian School staff, whole-heartedly pledge to the families of NCS to: “teach the academics with a high level of excellence and professionalism and encourage students to utilize their gifts in the fine arts and athletics to excel and do their very best to the glory of God”

I want to thank you for speaking so fondly about our school to your friends and co-workers.  We have already received many admission applications for the 2015-2016 school year.  However, we will not process these applications until we have given our current families an opportunity to re-enroll their children.

Please take a few moments and complete the following steps to re-enroll your child(ren).

Steps to take to Re-Enroll:

  • Review the hard copy Re-Enrollment Student Profile Report that was sent to you via postal mail.
  • Cross through and correct any information that has changed and then sign the bottom
  • Sign the School Activities Participation Agreement document that was sent to you via postal mail
  • Return all items to the high school office prior to Friday, February 6th with a check made payable to Northside Christian School for $175 if you are re-enrolling one child, $300 if you are re-enrolling two children, or $400 for three or more children.  Credit card payments are also accepted at the school and via PayPal.

The re-enrollment fee will increase after February 6th and your child’s classroom space could potentially be awarded to a new applicant. For your convenience, we will also be available in the MS/HS Library from 3pm until 6pm on Wednesday, February 4th and Thursday, February 5th if you prefer to re-enroll in person.

You will see that tuition rates will increase an average of 2.9%. Northside Christian School is committed to maintaining all of our current enrichment classes, athletic, and fine arts programs. Students entering the 7th-12th grades will be receiving Course Registration Forms shortly. As in the past, we offer a wide variety of classes and electives from which to choose.

In closing, I want to remind you about the Ambassador Program. If you refer a new family and they cite your name on their admissions application, you will receive $500 off per family when they enroll their children at Northside Christian School.  There is no limit to the amount of money you can receive as a credit toward your tuition costs through this program. Thank you for being a part of Northside Christian School.

In His Service,

Donald C. James, Ed. D
Head of School
