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.
