Our family has had the best experience at NVCA! The teachers are all excellent and work hard to individualize the learning experience for each student. The school community is very friendly, like a family. We highly recommend NVCA to our friends and neighbors.

I'm a an elementary school teacher at NVCA. I love the students, families, and staff here. There are many opportunities for sharing God's love and learning. God's Word is present and shared in each classroom. We strive to meet the needs of all students and look for ways to challenge and motivate them. Each child is challenged to their potential and beyond.

We have been part of the NVCA family for nine years. Our children thrive in the Christ-centered, fully loving and accepting environment. We trust the staff, from administration to teachers, to do everything within their power to help our kids be successful. Every year we see our kids grow and mature in their walk with God and their academic abilities. We are truly thankful God placed us at NVCA.

My kids are young so we have been at NVCA for a year now. Both of my children will be attending NVCA next year. This school is a great investment in your children's education. NVCA has so much to offer in regards to curriculum and God centered learning. I can't wait to join in teaching the 2's class next year. The staff put their hearts and souls into each child's learning experience. They truly care about each individual. We love NVCA!

I am blessed to have the opportunity to join the NVCA family in August 2017! After years of teaching at various other educational institutions, I already feel loved and part of a family that shares the same Christian values and beliefs. From students parents, administration, fellow staff members and students, the sense of community and family is unmatched. I cannot wait to share my passion for athletics and health with the NVCA families next year, blessed beyond belief!

North Valley Christian Academy - I was new to the area and had the school referred to by a friend. The staff is AMAZING regardless of the level where your child is at. We can't wait until they open the new campus on 27th Drive and it opens up to high school, too. The administration said that the Summer 2018 program will be unique in the area, open to the upper levels with a wide variety of programs. We are so happy to be part of NVCA!!

NVCA has been a gift to our family! Our son has attended for 5 years, starting in Kindergarten. The staff/faculty are all wonderful. They are caring, supportive and hold my son to a high standard. I love the focus on the WHOLE child, not just academics. NVCA truly teaches students how to be Christian leaders!
