"I just wanted to let you know that I referred a co-worker of mine, whose daughter will be entering high school this fall, to Northpoint. She went to the information meeting last night and was so impressed by you and the school. I wanted to say thank you for all that you do. I am so proud that [my daughter] is a student there. The staff there has really helped her grow, think, and learn about the world and herself. I refer every parent I know to consider Northpoint as an option for their children."

Northpoint Expeditionary Learning Academy believes that students learn best in classrooms containing fewer than 25 students. We will maintain class sizes of 25. Our maximum per grade level depends on the courses offered and the class sizes. When a course fills to 25 students, all remaining applicants will move to the wait list for lottery drawing. Please email or call for futher information. Crew classes and Intensives will have fewer students than core academic classes.
Northpoint Expeditionary Learning Academy shall enroll all pupils who submit a completed eligibility packet prior to March 31, unless the number of pupils exceeds the noted capacity of any given class (25). If capacity is insufficient to enroll all eligible pupils who submit an eligibility packet prior to March 31, then a lottery of all eligible applicants shall be conducted on April 1. All eligible pupils thereafter will be entered into a lottery, closing on the last day of each month, which shall be conducted on the first day of each month until the start of school. Additional lottery dates may be added as the start of school nears.
Students will remain enrolled until a withdrawal is completed. Once enrolled, this procedure does not need to be repeated (except as stated below). Preference will be given in accordance with the law.
For all interested students and parents who want to learn more about a typical day at NELA please stop by for a tour or take the time to visit for a half day.
