Breaking News for Noble Academy’s Kindergarten Program

At the April 1st board meeting, the trustees approved the changing of the admissions criteria for students applying to our kindergarten program. This is for students who are experiencing learning challenges concerning academic readiness, and who are seeking an early intervention model.

Although the admissions process for grades 1-12 will remain the same, preschool aged applicants who are 5 by August 31st,  are no longer required to have a psychoeducational evaluation for admissions, and therefore a formal diagnosis is not required for kindergarten applicants. Noble Academy Lower Division administration will conduct screenings in the area of readiness, literacy, and math to qualified applicants as part of the admissions process to determine acceptance.

Our small class size, customized program, and specialized teachers will build a strong academic foundation to successfully prepare our kindergarteners for the 1st grade.

Welcome Back!

Dear Noble Academy Family,

As our summer programs come to a close, it reminds me that the start of our 26th school year at Noble Academy is only a few weeks away.  How time flies during these long, warm days of summer vacation!

Thanks to the hard work and planning done by our administrative staff, we are pleased to announce several improvements to our facilities, programs and communication plans. We have:

  • Purchased a new library maintenance system so that students can more easily access print and digital materials.

  • Updated our computer labs and painted the media center.

  • Designated a special area in the media center for upper division students to access materials

  • Installed new carpet and updated bathrooms in lower division building

  • Created a comfortable, new seating area for parents and students in the lower division lobby

  • Painted some of our playground equipment & purchased new equipment for games

  • Added new after- school enrichment programs

  • Broadened our music program with Music Academy of North Carolina (MANC)

  • Changed our weekly parent e-mail to Mondays instead of Thursdays so information is communicated with you at the beginning of each week

  • Scheduled the monthly TRIAD LDA community meetings on our campus

All of these additions and upgrades are part of our ongoing efforts to provide not only the best educational programs for your child but also a warm and inviting facility that encourages them to do their best every day.

We look forward to seeing our new students for an orientation on Monday, August 19th from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm and our returning families at Meet Your Teacher Night on Monday, August 19th from 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm.  Please find enclosed important information that will help you and your child to be prepared for the first day of school on Wednesday, August 21st at 8:20 am.

Cheers for the new year!

Sincerely,

Linda Hale

Head of School

 

Noble Mobile

Noble Academy is happy to announce that our new mobile site has been launched and designed specifically for all of the things you might want to get while on the go.

The homepage includes several options, including a navigation menu, a search bar and a few shortcut buttons at the bottom of the screen.  There are some pages formatted for current families as well as new visitors to our school.

We are still tweaking the links and options, but one feature that we are working on is the tablet functionality of the site.  We know that more of our students are accessing our services using tablets, small or large, so want to make sure our site works well.  Currently we are perfecting a system that displays the mobile site when in portrait mode, and then switches to the full site in landscape mode, allowing for dual functionality.

Some of the resources most useful for current parents and students include the News and Information page, as well as the My Noble Academy page, which duplicates the logins and information from the My Noble Academy page on the website.  You can also click the Contact button to get a link to call or email the school directly.  If you have additional information or services that you think the mobile site should have, please feel free to email Matt Zigler with suggestions!
