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.

This a wonderful school that you should go and visit as you consider where your children will be going to school. The teachers are wonderful and the staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a great combination of a strong academic program and Christian teaching.
