Open Houses & Tours

“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.” Northside Catholic Academy Parent
The best way to learn about Northside Catholic Academy and to see if it’s the right fit for your family is to walk through our halls and visit our classrooms. We encourage prospective parents to attend one of our open houses to discover first-hand what makes NCA a Blue Ribbon School. At the open house you will get an overview of our curriculum, mission and philosophy, meet our principal, and take a tour with our student ambassadors. We accept applications up to one year in advance.
