I have been a part of Isaac Newton for the past 9 years. I am continually impressed with the teachers and their guidance in both Bible based learning and strong academics. My children have many opportunities in extracurricular activities as well. We love Isaac Newton.

We knew the first time we visited the school that we wanted our kids to attend Isaac Newton Christian Academy. We're excited about the school's growth and continued academic excellence!

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.

The teachers permeate Biblical truth in each of their areas of study. Teachers have been trained with tools to help students see how God has revealed himself through every aspect of creation and academics.

My wife and I are parents of three former Isaac Newton students and we now have two grandchildren attending. We really enjoyed the Bible based teaching, strong curriculum and great caring teachers. The school does everything they can to build student scholars who have a Christlike character.

As you’ve been doing your boarding school research, you’ve likely seen ISEE/SSAT score submission requirements for your target schools, and understand how important scores are to the admissions process. Unfortunately, tremendous candidates can get bypassed because they were not able to demonstrate what they knew on test day.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
