The best part of life at ANC is the students themselves. The student body is not divided up into cliques competing to be cool; students respect each other for the talents and qualities the Lord gives to each one.

The Academy of the New Church Girls School and Boys School are separate schools that share faculty, facilities and certain classes.
This unique arrangement allows us to honor the complementary nature of males and females by providing single-sex courses and activities where appropriate, but also co-ed courses and activities where that is desirable.
ANC Secondary Schools are religious institutions, seeking to integrate into our program the teachings of the Old and New Testament, seen in the light of the theological works of Emanuel Swedenborg.
