Newton Christian School

  • Newton Christian School is a community of families, staff and friends working together to provide the students with a loving, nurturing environment which promotes strong academic development. Here the students learn by example and Bible-directed instruction to know God better.
  • They learn to see His sustaining hand in Creation, to honor Him, and to be equipped with the skill and insight for service to God and their community.
  • At Newton Christian School we strive to incorporate Christ and biblical truth into our entire curriculum.
  • During chapels, all students join together to worship God in prayer, singing and devotions.
  • Throughout all aspects of their education, students are challenged to pursue excellence--academically, morally and spiritually.
  • One of the ways in which we achieve academic excellence is to make the "basics" a priority in our curriculum.
  • This includes teaching phonics in our reading program and facts in our math program.
  • The multi-grade classrooms and low student-teacher ratio allow individualized instruction and cooperative learning experiences.
  • Our students, beginning in kindergarten and continuing through eighth grade are encouraged to develop disciplined study habits that will serve them through life.
