Junior Highers have the opportunity to fellowship together during scheduled social events. These events are chaperoned by parents and staff and allow the students to get together and have fun outside of the classroom. These events include picnics, ice skating, sporting events, etc. The junior highers also experience a "spirit week" which is a fun-filled week to boost the kids' excitement about the school. It encourages comradery amongst teammates as well as creativity as students must think outside the box to dress according to each theme throughout the week.
Students have the opportunity to serve and develop leadership and servanthood skills by campaigning for a student council position at the beginning of each school year. Under the leadership of teachers, council members are responsible for many events throughout the year and work together diligently to make them happen. Positions include president, vice president, PR manager, recording secretary, publicity, special events coordinator, and K-5 chapel coordinator.
Debate is another one of our programs here at NorthCreek and what an amazing program it is! Students join the elective and practice many times a week as a team under the leadership of one of our teachers. They participate in multiple tournaments throughout the school year against other schools anywhere from the Bay Area to Los Angeles.
Music is a very important aspect to NorthCreek Academy. Students begin with band at an early age and participate throughout their time here at NCA. However, junior high students sign up to take band as an elective. They practice a few times a week to prepare for special events such as the Christmas band performance, spring musical and eigth grade graduation.
The junior high praise team is offered as an elective to lead the junior high in worship during the weekly chapels. Students are required to audition at the end of the previous school year. The instruments played include piano, drums, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, and electric guitar, as well as a few vocalists and a backstage technician.
