ACTIVITIES & ELECTIVES
We maintain an educational environment that kindles the curiosity in students to discover, to think creatively, and to find joy and confidence in relationships with others. Extra and co-curricular electives, activities, and clubs are an important part of a student’s education, and NCS implements them as a way to engage our students, enhance their academic experience, and foster the growth of relationships.
It has been found that the arts allow children to express themselves creatively, bolster self-confidence, improve overall academic performance, and help them become logical and creative problem-solvers. At NCS, we offer visual, performing, and musical arts as either electives or extracurricular opportunities.
High school electives include Drama, Art 1 & 2, Publication (Yearbook), and Mixed Media.
Private piano lessons are offered to NCA students. Each lesson is 1/2-hour in length, once per week. The lesson is scheduled in consultation with the student’s classroom teacher in order to minimize the academic impact. Additional monthly costs are incurred for piano lessons. Register for piano lessons online (Google form).
After-school theater is offered to NCA students. Theater provides an outlet for kids to discover themselves and create life-long relationships while learning skills they will carry into their professional and personal lives. Experiencing the emotions and thoughts of the characters in the scripts and scenarios requires growth and character that pushes children to better themselves at every rehearsal and performance. NCA offers both fall and winter/spring productions. Additional monthly costs are incurred for this program.
Music classes offered at the high school level include:
Band, Guitar 1, Guitar 2: Advanced Guitar and Songwriting, Vocal Ensemble
