Student Services Liaison (Immediate)
Job Title: Student Services Liaison
NorthStar Academy (NSA) is a community of 4th-12th grade learners in an accredited online school. It uses the internet to link students with other students and certified teachers who provide the students' instruction and grading. NorthStar is completely online with students all over the world. It has rolling enrollment, which means students can begin throughout the year.
NSA is celebrating its 23rd year and is dually accredited by Cognia and ACSI. While NSA is a Christian school, many unbelievers attend also, which gives us an opportunity to fulfill our NICS purpose of reaching the world for Christ through Christian education. NorthStar operates with the belief that being strong academically and discipling students can be done simultaneously; one should not be sacrificed to attain the other.
The Student Services Liaison will assist the Student Services Department by supporting the Student Success Coach and the Guidance Department. This position is remote and does not require relocation.
