Mission Statement:

The specific mission of Northside Christian School is to provide a sound academic education integrated with the Christian view of God and the world based on the Word of God.

School History:

Northside Christian School was formed by a group of parents who realized God holds them responsible for training up their children in the right way, and for overseeing the influences on them. God led them with the aid of their local churches to set up a Christian school dedicated to educating the children according to the ways and truths of the Bible.
Northside Christian School opened in September of 1974 as Compassion Christian School with thirty students, grades one through eight. In August of 1978 the wchool was reorganized and the name was changed. Instead of being a direct ministry of the church, it became a Minnesota non-profit corporation having three churches as members: Compassion Christian Center (now Church Upon the Rock), Way of the Cross Church, and Daystar Ministries.
In the fall of 1986 there was no room for further growth at the Church Upon the Rock campus. During this time, the vision came for the opening of new campuses in other churches. This desire led to the opening of the scond Northside campus at Way of the Cross Church in September of 1987. Northside was later consolidated at the Way of the Cross (now Way of the Lord) site in 1999.
