Students at Noble Academy quickly become a part of a community that is centered around learning, fostered by supportive teachers and staff, and encouraged by peers that understand the difficulties that school can bring.
Because of our small size and individual interactions, students are given a lot of trust in a variety of areas, which allows them to enjoy a relationship with their teachers that is caring and respectful. There are many privileges accorded to students because of this level of trust and respect.
There are multiple student centered programs designed to help students improve their ability to work with others, be respectful of others, practice leadership opportunities, and gain valuable life experience to make sure that they are as prepared as they can be for life after Noble Academy.
The Noble Academy High School Student Council is elected at the beginning of each academic year. The council includes a president from each academic class, as well as an executive council. Student Council focuses on improving student life at Noble Academy. The council plans homecoming week activities, spirit week, and most importantly listens to their classmates and considers their ideas for improvements and activities.
High School Student Council is also responsible for the operation of The Armory, the Upper Division’s school store. Student council members determine the inventory, which typically consists of food items the students can purchase during break. The council is also responsible for opening the store, sales, and deposits.
National Honor Society
Noble Academy has a chapter of National Honor Society (NHS) on campus. Students in grades 10-12 are eligible to apply for membership. NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. NHS members plan school wide service events, such as Campus Beautification Day, as well as participate in off campus service opportunities.
Jr. Beta Club
Junior Beta Club is an opportunity for students in grades 6-8 to participate in leadership and service activities. Jr. Beta Club promotes the ideals of academic achievement, character, service, and leadership. Student members participate in regional events and service.
Activities and Events

Flexuary (Middle School and High School)
The purpose of Flexuary is to allow our students an opportunity to deeply engross themselves into a topic we feel is relevant, but not specifically covered in our curriculum. We use multiple days of flexible time to allow students to experience hands-on, interactive seminars giving them direct instruction on the topic. The students then explore a part of the topic they find personally interesting and create a project of their choosing to communicate what they have learned.
Middle School Flexuary is a time for students to explore what it is like to be an entrepreneur- a career path rarely talked about in schools, even though it accounts for 60-80% of new jobs each year across the country. During Entrepreneur Week, students will be given an opportunity to create and operate (via presentation) their own businesses. Students will be responsible for identifying and researching an area of interest, assess problems that could be made better; choose a company structure; assess the market; develop a plan to advertise and “sell” a good or service. At the culmination of the project, students will host an Entrepreneur's Marketplace where they will show off their creations and pitch their product to the greater Noble Academy community.
