- Self-Discipline: Students are expected to set personal goals and strive to achieve these goals.

Discipline at North Central Texas Academy
Discipline at the Academy, and in the residences, is based on a system of rewards and privileges. Every student must learn to accept fair and consistent discipline and eventually internalize it. Students must work hard to develop values and a proper style of behavior. Infractions of the rules of conduct may result in loss of privileges, detentions, time-out in the residences, missing athletic events and other outings, and eventually, dismissal from the Academy.
Each teacher and resident parent will establish classroom and residential expectations. Rules and consequences for not following them will be reviewed and reinforced with students.
North Central Texas Academy is a Christian, boarding and day school with qualified professionals to assist students in growing academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. All students must be motivated and capable of working on, or above, grade level.
