New Life Christian School serves 2, 3 and 4 year olds in our NEW preschool program- the Grace Learning Center as well as Pre-K through 12th grade students. We currently serve over 300 students from 200 families. Our quality Christian programming is accredited by the Association of Christan Schools International (ACSI) and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA). Our mission is to partner with families to provide a quality educational program with a distinctly Biblical worldview, in order to equip students with the tools to integrate their knowledge and faith into the church, community and the world.

As a new teacher to this institution I must say that I am happy to be part of this staff and school. The students, for the most part, are welcoming and strive to be the best that they can be. The teaching staff and administration are the best! Ths is more like a family. The students receive an excellent education without losing their individuality. They have fun and care about their school. If you are looking for a place where a wonderful, top-of-the line education will be offered without your student having to relinquish their youth, this is the place to come.

I have four childre; three of which graduated from New Life and one that is currently a sophmore in high school. All my children loved the school and were well prepared for college life upon graduation. We moved to Tennesse after our youngest graduated from 8th grade and after one year moved back to Maryland just so she could finish out her high school at NLCS. She loved and missed it so much that it broke our hearts. The only reason we moved back was for her to attend NLCS. It is like a big extended family with a lot of love to go around. Our family would not trade it for anything.

I have been a student at new life since kinderkarten and it wasn't easy leaving but this was my last year at the school. I would say Elementary is great for kids but Middle school and high school aren't public schools are way worse but not everyone is christians! Alot of parents send there kids to the school to get them straightened out and it ruins the High and middle school. Most Elementary kids are too young too have trouble at other schools so thats why it's alot better!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
