School Choir:  

Given the rich history of 80+ years, The Northeastern Academy Choir remains true to the main emphasis of the choir program which focuses on musicianship and ministry, followed meticulously by citizenship, tradition, morale, and the spirit of God. 

Under the elite direction of Mr. Antonie Brady, the Northeastern Academy Choir has developed a repertoire of choral music which ranges from classical and gospel genres as well as Negro spirituals. The Northeastern Academy Choir has contributed to society via mission trips and community partnerships to inspire others through song.  In 2016, the choir was blessed with the opportunity to open up for the world renowned Aeolians of Oakwood University.
