What is ACSI?

The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) is an educational organization with whom NCS has been a member and/or associated since the inception of the school.


The educational choices that parents make for their children shape them academically, spiritually, and in their worldview and skills. At Christian schools, the faculty and staff are equipped to address each of these developing areas of a child's life. These schools take seriously the responsibility to develop children's minds, but they don't distance God from academics.


ACSI is an international organization that believes in the important of a Christ-centered education as a choice while preparing students academically for their future plans and vocations.


ACSI is a network of schools from across the US and around the world where parents can locate schools that teach these principles in any part of the country or world in which they live.


ACSI offers professional development, legal assistance, networking opportunities, certifications, and educational curriculum and resources.


Northlake Christian School annually participates in several ACSI academic events:

- Spelling Bee

- Speech Meet

- Math Olympics

- Art Festival


For more information, please visit the ACSI website.

NCS Annual Fund

Dear Northlake families,


You should have received a mail-out recently asking you to contribute to Northlake Christian School's Annual Fund. I hope you had a chance to read over the material and gain a full understanding of what the annual fund entails. We recognize and appreciate the financial sacrifice families make to send their children to NCS, but please realize that tuition alone does not cover all of our needs, especially substantial improvements such as our new Middle School and the technology infrastructure needed to support our school-wide 1-1 iPad program. Please take a moment to watch THIS VIDEO created by our students which highlights these strategic initiatives. Our vision for Northlake has never wavered and that is "to integrate faith and learning to provide the best education and experience for your child so they can impact the world for Christ." You are helping us achieve that vision when you give or pledge to give to our annual fund. For more information about how the annual fund benefits your student, CLICK HERE.


Your support and prayers along with the faculty and staff are the heart of the ministry of NCS. Paul urges us in Philippians 4:6, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Please continue to pray for God to use Northlake mightily.


In closing, I ask you to prayerfully consider what you can give and where you can serve. You can go to the school website under "Giving" to donate online or you can mail in the envelope from the annual fund brochure. There is no gift too big or too small to make an eternal difference in the lives of the children that NCS serves. Thank you always for your support, and let us continue to give God the glory for all He has done and will continue to do at Northlake Christian School.


For His Glory,

Monty Fontenot
Head of School
