School Reviews

  • Recommended February 22, 2014 - NUACS is everything my wife and I wanted for our children. The teachers are caring dedicated professionals who go above and beyond what is expected of them. Our children received a first class academic education, a thorough religious education, and participated in extra-curricular programs that are successful across the board. The spirit of cooperation among students, parents, and faculty/staff make NUACS a fantastic school. - Posted by Parent
