Academy Of The New Church Secondary Schools

     Tel: (267)502-4855
Grades: 9 - 12 | 229 students
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.
