Please join us for the Graves Building Dedication Ceremony
DeAnna Graves was Northland’s first Head of School, as well as one of Northland’s first teachers. Through DeAnna’s dedication, the assistance and support of her husband Jim, and the prayers and hard work of Northland’s first families, Northland Christian School officially opened in the fall of 1974.

After founding Northland, DeAnna and Jim Graves continued to invest in the school. Jim served as a board member for 20 years, and DeAnna filled countless roles, including teacher, Dean of Academics, school registrar, and guidance counselor. Through it all, DeAnna and Jim brought godly wisdom to the school and into the lives of Northland students.
