School Notes:

  • If your son is looking to be apart of a cutting edge school experience, where he will receive a superior education, as well as an understanding of true entrepreneurship, NCA should be his first choice.  He will be challenged in the classroom and outside the classroom.  Boys like movement, purpose, and a challenge that carries a direct result.  School can be laborious, yet given the proper tools and mission statement, students can step up to the challenge and succeed.  When learning about our country's Christian and Western Heritage, boys are given examples of how perseverance and following truth was part of everyday life, and we are all expected to step up to the plate and give it our best swing.
  • Whether studying for a math test or dog-mushing in the U.P., we teach our young men that life can be exciting when they are challenged. Our job is to properly equip these boys with the appropriate tools.

School Reviews

Our son learned more in the first 6 weeks of school than in several past years at other private schools. The depth of true academic learning and growth in terms of Christian values and morals has been phenomenal. We would highly recommend this Christian school for middle and high school boys! We are so lucky to have this educational opportunity in our community.

This has been a great experience for our son, he is learning so much that other schools NEVER taught him. Finally, this is a school that doesn't just say "Christian" but truly follows scripture and has the boys understand what it is they are learning. One other thing is that they aren't worried about enrolling a certain number of students, they take care of the ones they have!
