We have two kids in elementary school. NCA is a wonderful school, not only because of the Christian beliefs, but also because they teach values, morals, and their education system is fantastic. All the teachers we've had, beginning with Jr. Kindergarten, are amazing. They are great at communicating with parents when something is needed or if there are concerns. Education expectations are set clearly at the beginning of the year and reiterated periodically. During the year, the teachers are open to communication. They are responsive when questions are asked or when we need to work on something together with the student. The staff at all levels are professional, responsive, and friendly. Our children get tested several times a year and compared to the "national level" our kids are always well above average, and that is what we expect from the school. Our children participate in several intramural sports events that are offered throughout the year and they love it - another benefit of the school. No school will be 100% perfect for everyone, but we love NCA! We are working hard so our kids can stay there until they graduate high school. We strongly recommend this school.

After researching private schools in Springfield, we decided that New Covenant Academy was the best choice for our family. The faculty and staff truly care about the students, and about building strong foundations. All levels of staff are easily reachable and helpful. The extracurricular programs are diverse and well staffed/coached. There is also a great community within the families, we couldn't be happier with our decision!

We have had two children graduate from New Covenant Academy, and they were very well-prepared for college. We currently have two kids still at New Covenant, and we are very happy with our school. The academics are very strong but most importantly, the Bible is being taught and woven throughout all subjects as well as discipleship groups and chapel. NCA offers many extracurricular activities, such as sports, music, clubs, and academic activities, and NCA students always compete very well. The teachers are amazing, and our kids have grown in their faith and character throughout their time at NCA.

I have two kids attending NCA and they both love coming to school every day. The education they are receiving is amazing! We see friends whose kids are going to public school and our kids who are the same grade level are behind in learning things that my kids have already learned about or are currently learning! I feel like the Bible knowledge my kids have already gotten is amazing! I am pretty sure they can carry on a pretty deep discussion of the Bible and they are only in elementary grades!

As a longtime employee and mother of three graduates. I have continued to be pleased with the quality of education and the atmosphere of the school. I can't imagine wanting my children to go to any other school.

We have never regretted the investment we made in our children's education. As both a parent and long time employee, I have found the NCA community to have a common goal of nurturing students both academically and spiritually. The partnership between the school and parents is excellent.
