Welcome to North Central Academy

We are a tuition-free K-12 public charter school created for a quality education. 

The Governor has ordered that all K-12 school in the state be closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. NCA is developing some creative learning platforms for its students!


North Central Academy is now taking enrollments for the 2020-21 school year.  Please fill out the online enrollment form to let us know of your interest.   For more information, please contact Jill Kettlewell at 231-495-1115.  




Hands-On Learning and Character Education

Students at NCA learn academics through creative, hands-on projects.  

Our Great Expectations character education program teaches them life-long social skills.
