While our school is young, our Preschool has been around for 40+ years. We have hundreds of Academy alumni but we have thousands of Preschool alumni. NorthCreek graduates are serving the Lord in so many different ways and in so many different places. We would love to hear from you. Keep us posted on where you are and what life is like as an adult. Simply share your story with us using the link below or even come visit us if you’re in town.

Our goal here is to encourage former students to maintain a connection to both NorthCreek and each other. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay connected.


As a ministry of NorthCreek Church, all of our employees are professing Christians with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and a commitment to a local church whose doctrinal positions are in harmony with that of NorthCreek. Being that we are a Christian school, we want our staff to share God’s truths with the children and their families. Before considering employment at NorthCreek, we encourage you to think through your personal testimony concerning your relationship with Christ. Then, get a feel of our beliefs by reading NorthCreek’s Statement of Faith and looking through the NorthCreek Church website.
