New Life Christian Academy has been used of God to train hundreds of boys and girls in the Pike county area for over twenty years. The ultimate goal and purpose of New Life Christian Academy is to lead boys and girls to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and then train them in the Knowledge of God, the Christian way of life, and to offer them an excellent education. Our desire is to work with the parents in raising their children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord and thus equipping them to identify, evaluate, and relate properly to life's problems. Wisdom and knowledge comes from God; therefore, man's education is complete only when God and His Word are the center of learning. The fear of the lord is the beginning of Knowledge (Prov.1:7). As christian educators, we are concerned with the total person: his intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social being. We believe the needs of the total person can only be met as approached from a Christian or Biblical philosophy. But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him, and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him (I Cor.8:6).

Overall, the school excels academically. My child was writing incursive and reading sight words at the age of 4. He has learned a lot pertaining to the Bible and can recite various Bible verses. Prayer has been taken out of Public Schools, but this school is centered on Prayer and Faith. I am very satisfied with NLCA, but I pray that they would get some type of sports program there, if its nothing but softball. PE options could also be recommended, such as teaching self-defense through certified instructors. The lunch program could also be improved....other than that, I would greatly recommend this school to any parent who wants their child to exceed beyond the rest.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
