Northside Catholic Academy says

Northside Catholic Academy is the right choice for families who are looking for a challenging curriculum within a nurturing environment. NCA strives to educate the WHOLE CHILD by fostering development academically, socially, physically, and spiritually. Our goal is to not only prepare students for the next year, but to build a solid foundation for a successful lifetime. Our religious goal is to help children establish a relationship with God by first knowing that they are loved by God. Our students learn about the Catholic Church, the Scriptures, and other religious traditions through study and celebration. We value diversity, therefore our students learn what is shared and what is different about other religions in order to build tolerance and peace. 17% of our students are not Catholic. We pride ourselves in our community which is vibrant, diverse, and shares united goals for our children. Northside Catholic Academy is located in the Edgewater neighborhood of the north side of Chicago. Families typically live with 15 minutes of the school.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
