Welcome to Northside Catholic Academy!

Thank you for considering Northside Catholic Academy for the education of your child. Visiting our website is an excellent first step in learning more about our Blue Ribbon school, our diversified and rigorous curriculum, and our approach to educating the whole child. We hope you will also visit us at one of our Open Houses or Tours to experience first hand our welcoming and dynamic community. Visit us to find out if NCA is the right fit for your family. 


For those families with young children under the age of five, we invite you to join us for one of our Parent-Tot Playdates hosted throughout the year. Our Playdates provide a valuable opportunity to meet other families in the area while learning more about NCA’s Early Learning Center.


As the premier regional Catholic school on the Northside of Chicago, we serve the diverse communities of Andersonville, Edgewater, Rogers Park and West Ridge. At the heart of everything we do is the commitment to provide a well-rounded, quality Catholic education. We never want finances to be the reason why a family does not apply to NCA. We offer parishioner and multi-child tuition discounts, as well as need-based financial aid through our Guardian Angel Scholarship Fund. We are also pleased to be an eligible private school for the new Illinois Invest in Kids Tax Credit Scholarship Program. Eligible families could receive scholarships that cover up to 100% in tuition and fees for private schools. Learn more about the Invest in Kids Scholarships.

“In our search for Kindergarten we toured numerous schools (from some of the most exclusive private schools to the “best” CPS schools), but when we visited NCA, it just felt like home. Simply put, the students are kind and seem comfortable with who they are. There is a warmth that, frankly, was missing from some of the other schools. We can see our child and our family taking root and blossoming here.”
