Northridge Academy is participating in the Making Strides of Flint Breast Cancer event on Saturday, 10.10.15, please visit the link below for more information!
Northridge Academy students were excited about graduating from 8th grade and continuing on to local institutions of higher education. We had an opportunity to catch up with a few 8th grade graduates and this is what they had to say:
Anthony Smith: NA has prepared me to go to the next level by providing me with a high quality education. I’ll be attending the U of M Genesee Early College in the fall and I’m excited to be moving on.
Prentice Duncan: I wanted to attend Northridge, because I felt it was a better learning environment for me than the last school I went to and I was right! I’m glad I came here and in the fall I’m going to the U of M Genesee Early College.
Mario Boone: Northridge Academy taught me self-management and how to look presentable at all times like wearing a belt, no sagging, tucking in my shirt, and to look like a respectable young man so thank you Northridge for teaching me how to think and present myself to the world! I’m attending Mott Early College this fall.
Ny’Breeyah Monroe: Northridge Academy has taught me well and because of that I’ll be attending Mott Middle Early College this fall. I will begin to prepare for a nursing career, moving to Miami or Costa Rica purchasing my own home and living my life as a nurse or maybe a doctor I want to find cures to help all the sick children feel better.
Hello NA Parents/Guardians,

So please encourage and be supportive of your student during the upcoming weeks of testing. Together (staff, students, & parents) we are going to make it happen!!!

Northridge Academy hosted the one hour presentation by Brenda Hartley of the Hero Town USA organization educating our students about real life heroes as well as inspiring our students to act heroically in their environments by demonstrating the four tools a hero need:
Use Eyes and ears
Take a Risk
Our students had fun participating in this interactive learning program by singing, dancing, and interactive discussions as they learned how to be able to say:
A Hero to Be...That's Me!!!
Northridge Academy has been a proud participant as a Site Leader for the University of Michigan and Virginia Tech's Alternate Spring Break Programs. Our teachers were able to guide the university students in managing day-to-day classroom instructions at the K-8 instructional level and the university students were able to share their excitement and enthusiasm of teaching and learning with our students and teachers. In fact, to demonstrate their excitement the U of M students brought books with them to pass out to NA's students. This was a rewarding experience for all involved!
