Academics – As one of our three program pillars, we are dedicated to the academic advancement of our student athletes. Our guidance counselors work with each student and his parents to create an academic plan that best fits his educational goals and background. Our flexible options allow each student to receive a highly tailored quality education designed just for him.
At Northstar Christian Academy all of our students have a combination of both live classes (mainly our discipleship classes) as well as online school. There are two academic platforms that our students can choose their classes from with the help of our academic counselors. The first is through Liberty University Online Academy and the second is through Edgenuity. Both of these options are NCAA compliant and they allow our students the ability to graduate with a Northstar Christian Academy diploma.

Enhanced Class Options
At Northstar Christian Academy we offer Enhanced Classes through Liberty University Online Academy. These classes have live, dedicated teachers and meet weekly. These classes are particularly helpful for those students who learn best with a live instructor. Each week these students will be required to attend their live classes and complete all assigned assignments. Our academic staff works with our coaching staff to ensure practice and class times are properly coordinated to minimize missed live classes.
College Class Options
Northstar Christian Academy also gives Junior and Senior level students the possibility to take college level classes through Liberty University Online Duel Enrollment program. Having our students take college level classes helps them earn college credits that can be used at Liberty or other Universities around the country.
At Northstar Christian Academy we currently have three dedicated classrooms that our U16 and U18 teams are divided into. Each classroom has a full-time proctor who helps monitor classroom academic time, assists with organization and planning of the students, and even assists with certain academic requirements that our students need help with. To assist our students in the classroom, we require each student to have sound canceling headphones to help them properly concentrate on their work.
Each of our students are required to meet a certain academic percentage (%) point in each of their classes each week. By monitoring academic progress, it ensures that students will finish their academic classes on time, instills time management skills, and holds them accountable to be working hard in the classroom. Below is the academic progress requirements in order to play in each weekends games
Semester Long Classes (7%) each week
Full Semester Classes (3.5%) each week
Enhanced Classes (All assignments must be completed)
Academics On The Road
Our Program also plans daily academic sessions while the team is on the road that are monitored by our coaching staff. Additionally, we provide tutoring for students if needed by third party teachers who love to work with our Knight players.
