Northridge Academy - A Michigan reward school!
Committed to Excellence...no excuses
Northridge Academy is a quality, established Flint, MI charter school. We have been recognized by the Michigan Department of Education as a MICHIGAN REWARD SCHOOL - with high quality academics, enrichment, athletics and so much more!
Caring, highly-qualified teachers provide every child with learning opportunities that utilize the entire community as the classroom.
We feature a state-of-the-art computer lab as well as free after-school enrichment, including science exploration, mentoring and tutoring, character education, math and money, and reading with a purpose.
Northridge Academy is a learning community that places strong emphasis on teaching and learning while maintaining interest in the development of each child individually. This emphasis focuses on employing best practices to influence higher student achievement that is sustainable.
As a community of educators, our discovery is that our success with student attention and retention is derived as a result of adopting a constructivist method of teaching and learning. This ensures that we guide students rather than lecture to them, which allows them to develop and utilize higher order thinking skills and abilities to draw their own conclusions.
Further, students take ownership and experience feelings of self-worth, independence, and ability. Students actually take ownership of their own learning and development. The result is increased attention and retention, thereby sustained increased student achievement.
