School Reviews

This was the best decision we ever made for our children. The faculty and staff truly invested in our kids during their entire time at NFC. The education is excellent and the environment is just what every parent prays for. We love how our kids were taught to strive for excellence in all they do; from their relationship with Christ to their academic endeavors. Yes, it's an investment - and we'd do it all over again... at NFC!
