Course Selection Forms (2016-2017). Course selection forms will be handed out to Grade 8-11 students at chapel on Wednesday, April 27th. These are being distributed a little later than usual this year in order to provide you with the most accurate information about what classes will be offered at NCA next school year. All students who are enrolling in high school next year should turn in their course selection forms by May 4th. If you have questions about how to fill these out, please contact the high school office.

Families going on home assignment during the 2016-17 school year are strongly encouraged to check with the high school office before departing to get recommendations for courses while on home assignment. Many courses and grade levels are operating A and B years, and we want to make sure you take the correct courses to stay on track with your class. Remember that if you are planning on home schooling high school (Grade 9-12) courses while on furlough you will need to work with an agency that will issue credit on a transcript. A Beka, Hewitt High School, NorthStar, Keystone, and NDCDE are all agencies that have been used in the past. More information is available at the high school office.

SAT, May 7. The SAT is being offered at NCA on May 7. Important! If your child is signed up to take the SAT, they must have a picture ID and a printed Admission Ticket.
