Welcome to Northwest Academy–home of the sharks! Since opening our doors in 2004, Northwest Academy has offered a safe, secure, and positive environment to students and families. Our mission is to provide a high level of education by focusing on achievement, technology, and social responsibility to create successful citizens. Our highly qualified and experienced teachers love working at Northwest Academy, and most have been with us for over five years. Our students benefit from a well-rounded education including arts and music, and each student receives a free breakfast and lunch every day. We hope you will consider enrolling at Northwest Academy and allowing us to serve your family.

Community schools offer an alternative to the local public school. They are free and open to all students and focused on meeting student needs for success. Community schools are among the top-performing schools in the nation.
Our educational approach has five principles at its core. These principles provide a strong foundation for learning.
Individualized LearningWe care about every student and are committed to preparing children for lifelong success. Our Individualized Learning Plan's start with a unique baseline for each student and analyze performance data at regular, short intervals. Teachers and staff tailor lessons and provide support accordingly.
Academic ExcellenceAs part of the ACCEL Schools network, we strategically apply best practices to our curriculum design, teacher training, and integrated technology to drive continuous gains in academic performance.
Accessible to AllWe foster a culture that is reflective of local values and interests, and we are open to all students.
Community PartnershipWe are not just located in your community — we are a part of it. We partner with local community and government leaders and parents.
Safe and CaringWe care about the well-being and development of each child. We insist on a secure and orderly school. We address every aspect of security, from building codes and safety procedures to codes of conduct and character education.
Our small class sizes and dedication to a well-rounded education make Northwest Academy a great educational environment.
Our school is part of ACCEL Schools, an established network of more than 25 charter and community schools located throughout the U.S. We serve more than 8,500 students nationwide.
