Upper School

6th - High School

Our Upper School students are challenged with a comprehensive academic program that provides a strong foundation for future success. The program focuses on the humanities (literature, language, critical and creative writing, American and world history, cultural studies, geography, current events) and features a complete STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum as well as foreign languages and art

The Upper School day combines regularly scheduled class time, along with opportunities for students to collaborate in small groups and to work independently during self-directed work time.  A strong emphasis on math and writing skills is reinforced in each discipline, and a differentiated learning approach ensures that each student is challenged. Students work closely with teachers and peers as they gain a deeper level of learning and mastery.

NCMA High School students have the  advantage of obtaining College and High School credits simultaneously through the Dual Credit Program.
