We love NLA! Our kids have thrived in a smaller school setting. We appreciate the Christian environment and the emphasis on service. The teachers are all so kind and caring. Each of our kids have gotten involved in sports and had a positive experience. They have made long lasting friendships. We highly recommend this school.

When our kids transferred to NLA, they were welcomed through student and parent sponsored events. They were encouraged to join sports and fit right in. Moving from out of state, they were a bit nervous at first, but did great! Academically, both kids have been challenged appropriately. You can choose from a variety of courses including honors and AP. Most importantly, this is a Christian school with all teachers educating from a Christian worldview. We highly recommend this school.

We love NLA, not only for the academics and the opportunities that our 3 kids have, but the strong and personal community at the school. Kids develop strong connections with not just friends, but with teachers and coaches who mentor them in areas above just academics.

Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
