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.

Choosing a private school is a process with many parts to it. It also takes 18-24 months to complete. This collection of articles deals with the first part of the process in which you begin to look at private schools and what they offer.
A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
