New Covenant Christian School

1497 Needham Ave,
Bronx, NY, 10469-0104
Tel: (718)519-8884
Grades: NS - 12 | 188 students
Our goal in Christian School education is to train the whole child- spirit, soul and body.
It is the conviction of New Covenant Christian Ministries (NCCM) that children should be brought up in the way they should go so that when they are mature, they will not depart from it.
Consequently, New Covenant Christian School- an integral part of the NCCM- is aimed at providing an alternative educational institution devoid of the avoidable problems we have in the public school system.
We believe: That there is no true education without the Word of God and that the word of God is the foundation of all learning; That morality and basic ethical foundation should be a part of the educational process; That teachers and the support staff should set example for students because children naturally imitate adults as their leaders or mentor.
That communication with God in the form of prayer in school does not violate any legitimate principles.
