Welcome to Northwood Temple Academy’s Elementary School,

Northwood Temple Academy is a nationally accredited school of distinction. Our mission is to provide a Christ-centered education that promotes excellence teaching and learning, high academic standards, excellence in fine arts, and a biblical worldview. In NTA’s Elementary School this mission is carried out primarily in how we view the learner.

Every child is created in the image of God, with purpose placed within their heart. This alone drastically changes our classroom pedagogy. Teachers view their classroom as a place where God permeates every activity, whether it be math, science, literature, or even physical education. We believe the Bible speaks to all of life, therefore it is imperative that God’s Word impacts every curriculum taught at NTA. This, paired with high academic standards, will prepare each student to fulfill the destiny to which God has called them.

Research has shown that a person’s moral foundation is solidified by age nine. Therefore, a child’s fundamental perspectives on truth, integrity, meaning, justice, morality, and ethics are formed during their formative years of Elementary School.[1] Here at NTA we take this to heart and see it as our mandate to disciple this generation to “love the Lord their God with all of their heart, soul, mind and strength.” This can only be accomplished through a distinctly Christian Education, where in all things Christ is preeminent.

Thank you so much for choosing to unite your family with ours in this mission to change the world with the love and power of Jesus Christ, through Christian Education.

In Christ,

Casey Strickland

Elementary Principal
