Philosophy of Education
Northgate Academy is a Christian learning community in the tradition of evangelical college preparatory high schools. As such, Northgate strives to foster a culture of excellence in learning based on biblical teachings, in a flexible and nurturing online learning environment.
Education as the process of teaching and learning, involves the whole person, by developing the knowledge, values, and skills which enable each learner to become successful with academics and in life.
The mission of Northgate Academy is to raise up the next generation of Christian leaders, through the training and nurturing of students in their spiritual, academic, emotional, and social development. This is realized through delivering a Christ-centered education, founded on biblical truth, which leads to the development of a world-view that will greater impact the world for Christ.
Northgate Academy will:
- Emphasize excellence in teaching and learning.
- Foster high school level competencies in communication, critical thinking, information literacy, and mathematics in all programs.
- Promote the synthesis of academic knowledge and the Christian worldview so that students will experience a maturing of their spiritual, intellectual, social and value-driven behavior.
- Encourage a commitment to the Christian life as it is lived out, a life that leads people to Jesus Christ as the Lord of the universe and their own personal Savior.
