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.
