North Central Academy
Learning adds quality to our lives. At Bay City
Academy, we strive to inspire students to grow in their lifelong
learning potential by teaching them how to learn. Students will
develop competence, caring and citizenship through a positive learning
experience in partnership with home and community.
North Central Academy
students earn salaries, have jobs
to do, pay bills and develop
their own businesses. The
younger children rely more
heavily on teacher support,
but all kids experience the
responsibility, creativity and
satisfaction of building a
business. Students learn to
become productive members of society by participating
in these businesses and job clubs, where real-life issues
such as supply and demand, profitability and customer
service are experienced firsthand.
Our fifth and sixth grade class
has partnered up with Shetler’s
Dairy to create a unique ice
cream flavor, “Blurple Berry
Blast”. This special blend of
blueberry, strawberry and
raspberry is mixed into Shetler’s
all natural, organic ice cream.
The 1/2 gallon cartons will be
specially decorated with the
NCA logo and being distributed through the school
and also available through the Shetler Dairy Farm in
Kalkaska, MI as well as Oryana’s in Traverse City.
Our Music Program
Learning music helps students learn other subjects
and enhances skills that children inevitably use. Music
is more than just using your voice, or playing an
instrument; it helps multiple skill sets. It helps your
child develop as a whole through the mind and the
body. It helps students become more involved and
engaged which is what we strive to accomplish here at
Bay City Academy.
This April, our Solo and Ensemble group traveled to
Woodland School in Traverse City to compete in the
“Charter School Solo and Ensemble” competition.
We are proud to announce they were awarded with
SUPERIOR ratings which is the highest rating you
can achieve. These young talented students never
seize to amaze us each and every day!
"Not only is LSSU close and convenient to my home in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, but the atmosphere is very welcoming. All of the staff and students seem to be really open, and the teacher-to-student ratio is very personal, unlike larger universities." [ more ]
