Paul Kubosh

Occupation: Attorney

Northland Association: 2001

What Northland means to me: The decision to attend Northland was a life altering decision for my family. I wanted to find a school in the City that would prepare my children for college. I wanted a school that would be small enough to allow them to participate in extra curricular activities. I wanted a wide range of electives including Debate and Orchestra. Even more so I wanted a place where the Word of God was preached and where we could celebrate the true meaning of Christmas in the school. I have four children who have gone to Northland. Two have graduated and they are excelling in College. There success is no small way a result in the education and training they got while at Northland Christian. Northland truly is Forever Prep.

What Northland means to me
Sheila and I made the decision to move from public to private education two years ago because we wanted an exceptional education experience for our children. Northland has exceeded all of our expectations. From the elementary school through high school, students receive an excellent college preparatory education supported and enhanced by a strong Christian environment and curriculum. The teaching staff and administration is outstanding, engaging each of our four children with a foundationally solid academic program, athletics, a wide variety of extracurricular opportunities and spiritual development. We are excited to be part of the Northland Christian community.

We look forward to seeing how God continues to grow Northland!
