Isaac Newton supports our family by integrating the same faith we teach at home into education and life skills. The teachers and staff are all caring and encourage students to do their best for God's glory. The facility continues to be upgraded to accommodate growth and new technology. This school is very strong academically and encourages the whole child with arts and activities that parallel any other small school. I encourage you to check it out!

Being at Isaac Newton Christian Academy was the best decision we made. Having been in the school since PreK, we've found the curriculum challenging and have been impressed that the biblical content is integrated. In addition, the teaching staff, facility, and strong commitment to each student's success has been sincerely appreciated.
