I have now been a parent at North Valley Christian for 3 years. I honestly could not imagine another school for my little ones. I think the number 1 thing that sets them apart from most is the loving, caring environment. This is not to downplay the level of academics at NVCA. I can say with great confidence that the education my daughter is receiving is among the highest in the nation. However, when a student is handled in such a way that they feel cared for and secure in their school environment, it gives them the freedom to excel and exceed in ways never thought possible. I cannot say enough good things about this establishment. The teachers, the administration, the parents, and most definitely the students are some of the most superb I have ever experienced. I have witnessed first hand the amount of time that the staff will take to prepare a project or a lesson that will resonate with the students for years to come. NVCA not only cares about a great education, but also takes the time to prepare these young lives to enter into the world equipped with emotional, spiritual, and physical knowledge to help them succeed at life. Thank you for your time.

NVCA has been a blessing to my family for the last 4 years. We drive 20 to school & pass the local school 1/4 mile away. Why drive so far? Because of what NVCA offers. The staff and faculty are compassionate, friendly and joyful. The parents and students we meet become family friends. The teachers challenge our children to be better members of society by involving them with different outreach programs. Students are expected to make good choices & encourage their peers to do the same. Parents participate in class activities which gives the children a sense of security. The Core Curriculum program allows my children to be exposed to subjects that they might not otherwise get an opportunity to learn. But most important to our family are the daily reminders of our Savior, Jesus Christ. The freedom to worship, pray, listen, and put into practice what the bible instructs us impacts my children. Being a parent to a student at NVCA, I can t help but grow along with them. Having my children in a school that surrounds them daily with encouragement, a safe environment, an outstanding curriculum & a solid foundation in Christ are what draws us back every year. To us NVCA has become home.

I am thankful that my 7year old daughter is able to attend this school. It's the kind of school where everyone knows your name. All the teachers are her extended family, all students her siblings. She is challenged in the classroom, and held to a high standard of morals and values at school. I could not be more blessed!

North Valley Christian Academy is an outstanding school. NVCA is a private, Christ-centered school located in the North Valley and from our perspective, it is the best school around! This is our fifth year attending NVCA and we couldn't imagine our children attending school anywhere else. The teachers are amazing and not only do they provide our children with an excellent education, but they also share the love of Christ with them each and every day. In today's world, children hear so many different messages. We are blessed to have our children hear the same message at home, at church and at school; God loves them and has a purpose for their lives. We love that we have the opportunity to walk our children into school every day and talk with their teachers. We are able to partner with their teachers to make sure they are continually held accountable to the values we are teaching them at home, to love others as Christ loves us and to seek Him in all that we do. NVCA is a family and we truly feel that and so do our children! I challenge you to consider making the best investment in your child's life, a Christ-centered education. You won't regret it!

NVCA Para la gente Hispana: Si usted le interesa que su hijo sea tratado con respeto y amor, que las cualidades y talentos que este tenga puedan ser destacados para ser una bendicion a la humanidad, que el nivel academico sea sobrealiente no solo a nivel Nacional sino Internacional. Y su escuela sea como su segundo hogar. Esta Escuela NVCA sin duda es la mejor!!! El personal mas capacitado, apto, calificado, fino, amistoso, que trata al estudiante como un ser inteligente, con respeto, amor y que lo conduce a tener una conducta armoniosamente Cristiana. Yo le doy las 5 estrellas!!! Por que lo vale en todos los sentidos.

The best school in Phoenix/Scottsdale. This is my son's first year in preschool and I can't believe how much he has learned in such a short amount of time. The teachers and staff are amazing! We will be sending both of our children here for preschool and k - 8th grade. Hopefully when the time comes they will be a full k - 12 school!

Excellent! NVCA is fantastic! They understand children and families. They school is strong academically - great liberal arts curriculum AND they clearly know that education is MUCH MORE than just academics. The teachers can not be beat -- they are absolutely the best. Worth every penny of investment for my children. Parents care about the school and CHOOSE the school -- this makes all the difference in the world.

We are excited about the Core Knowledge curriculum -- in the preschool and the elementary school. This school understands preparing well rounded children - from the education program to relationship building to strong family values. Thank you NVCA!

Our preschooler goes here and absolutely loves it! The nurturing environment and caring, competent staff are beyond our expectations. And perhaps the best thing, especially with the young ones, is that when we leave her there, we know she is learning in a safe, structured place.

I have two children attending COC and I have been more than happy with the education they are getting. I am an educator myself and I feel that my children are being taught above state standards and are excelling compared to their peers in the public schools. I also am impressed by the safe environment especially the security cameras and locked doors during school hours.
