Northside Catholic Academy
Several years ago, St. Gregory the Great Elementary School consolidated with five other parishes to create Northside Catholic Academy. NCA is St. Gregory the Great's Parish School and serves children from preschool through eighth grade. NCA has two campuses. The Primary Campus, preschool through fourth grade, is located at St. Gertrude Parish, 6216 N. Glenwood Ave. The Middle School, fifth through eighth grade, is located at St. Ita Parish, 5525 N. Magnolia Ave. Children from St. Gregory the Great Parish receive preference in admission and receive a registered parishioner discount on tuition. The enrollment of NCA for the 2015-2016 school year currently is over 500 students. Please visit the NCA website, www.northsidecatholic.org., for more information, or call the Admissions Office at 773-743-6277.
NORTHSIDE CATHOLIC ACADEMY NEWS
Northside Catholic Academy (NCA), the grammar school that serves our parish and five other nearby parishes, was named a 2013 Blue Ribbon School. This is a great achievement for our school. Each year only 50 private schools in the nation are honored with this award. Schools become eligible to apply for the award based on their standardized test scores (need to be in the top 10% of the nation). Once eligible, schools are required to complete a comprehensive application process and get the endorsement of their superintendent.
In the vestibule of the Church, there are brochures which contain information about the Preschool, Kindergarten, and 1-8 Grade programs being offered at NCA. Feel free to pick up some of the literature and learn more about NCA.
I want to offer my sincere congratulations to NCA for this great honor and for all they do all year long to promote good Catholic education and formation. – Fr. Paul
