Middle school students enjoy a lot of choices when it comes to daily life at NSA. From electives and explorations to arts and athletics, there are many opportunities for students to discover and pursue their passions.
The Middle School places equal emphasis on the character development of each student by developing personal integrity, leadership skills and a sense of the world outside of themselves. Students are encouraged to recognize their unique strengths while respecting differences in others. Community service projects enable students to connect what they are learning in the classroom to the real world, and they also help students build leadership, collaboration and communication skills.
Students can participate in Saints LEAD each year, which empowers Middle School students to Lead, Engage, Arrange and Design student-life opportunities on campus and around the community. Saints LEAD members work with the faculty and administration to organize service projects throughout the year as well as community-building events. Saints LEAD strives to uphold our Saints values while bringing new, student-driven ideas to enhance the school community and foster a positive school environment.
School Motto: Honor Above All
Honor is truly “Above All” at NSA. Our Honor Code is more than just words. It is our commitment to place honesty and integrity above everything else, and each and every member of the community has a vital role to play in upholding this commitment that stays with students for a lifetime.
