Students in grades K-12 participate in a variety of grade level and school-wide outreach endeavors throughout each year. Under the guidance of the administration and faculty, students demonstrate our underlying Christian beliefs by reaching out and serving others in the community. Serving others is a biblical principle that is an essential component of our educational program. As such, graduating seniors are required to complete community service hours in order to be eligible for graduation. This is a long-standing Northwood Academy tradition. Seniors choose from a host of non-profit organizations in our local area. Following the completion of the service hours a summative essay is required to discuss their experience. In addition to the outreach programs at their school, Northwood Academy students, through their own initiative, frequently serve at their churches, and participate in annual mission trips.
