Our History

In 1997, several families from the Westside Church of Christ saw a need in their community.

They recognized that there was a need for a Christian preschool where their young children could learn and grow not only academically but spiritually as well. The preschool was a success. It provided a Christian learning environment for the founding families’ children and for many others in McKinney.

As those young children grew, the families began searching for a Christian school that would continue to provide the spiritual and academic learning environment that had been created at the Westside Church of Christ Preschool. Not willing to give up on something they felt so passionate about, the families began the process of creating a Christian Academy. They gathered information, visited campuses, talked with experts and prayed. In a few short years, they were ready to open the doors to High Pointe Christian Academy. The first group of students were welcomed to class for the 2002-2003 school year. This first class of 16 students, consisted of both prekindergarten and kindergarten students. The school was and still is housed in the High Pointe Church of Christ.

Each year the academy has been blessed with growth and in turn has added a new grade level. It has gone through many positive changes, including a name change in the spring of 2005. The school board chose to change the name to North Texas Christian Academy in order to establish a more regional base.

North Texas Christian has always been committed to offering a balanced school experience for all students. The highest priority is placed on the spiritual, academic and social experience. With daily Bible classes and a Christian world-view presented in each subject, NTCA students learn God’s Word and His plan for His people. The academic courses are rigorous and expectations for success are high. The majority of NTCA students work above grade level in all subjects. NTCA students are encouraged to participate in community service.

With the addition of grade levels, the school now has classes for preschool through 12th grade. The upper school houses 5th through 12th graders. The elementary school houses Kindergarten Readiness through 4th grade. NTCA reached another milestone in the 2016-2017 school year, with the addition of a 12th grade class.

God continues to bless NTCA with a dedicated staff and families who desire to provide students with an exceptional spiritual, scholastic, and social educational experience.
