School Reviews

My husband and I are the parents to three children in 3rd, 6th and 9th Grade at NBCA. We feel blessed to be apart of a school that not only strives for academic excellence, but also to develop the character of the student body. Just as the first part of the school's Mission Statement communicates, "The mission of New Braunfels Christian Academy is to glorify God by partnering with parents within a Christ-centered community", we truly feel like educating our children is a partnership. There is open communication between parents and teachers, and the community within the school is comprised of like-minded parents, whose ultimate goal is to instill a biblical worldview in students, by educating, equipping and encouraging in faith, excellence and service. There have been many events that have taken place lately that have shown this to be true. Our Board President recently wrote a letter to the NBCA Family, where he was speaking of good things happening at our school. Usually, when you read something like this, you imagine a first place win or some other academic accomplishment. But the two things he was speaking of were reflections of the character of our school. One was mention of a Hype Squad, which is basically a group of high school boys cheering their hearts out for our school volleyball team. It is quite a site to behold! The second thing he mentions is our high school football team. They are having a tough year with few players, lack of experience, and several injuries. But despite these factors, they have not given up fighting the good fight! I don't know if it is because our son is involved in both of these groups, but I feel my heart over flow with thankfulness to belong to a school that recognizes and values this type of character. I encourage you to become a Wildcat.
