Children attended another private school within the district previously, opted to send kids here for a more rounded Christian experience, but the curriculum here pales in comparison. Hyper focus on higher-level learning opposed to elementary level, free dress days almost always require money which is attributed to senior-students funds, second-language Spanish is almost non-existent at the younger levels, and school's policy of parents remaining outside, even when there is some reason to visit student is unrealistic and makes me curious why parents don't have the right to access their child even after parents identification has been established. Although my Childrens' teachers are very fantastic, I am disappointed with so many other policies and actions at NLCA, I don't believe we will return!

Education from a biblical standpoint with teachers and administrators that truly care. They gather each morning to pray for the children. Highest test scores in the entire district in 2014. If you want your child to grow in the Lord and gain a great education within a great school, this is your place!

Excellent staff and learning environment! My son attended two other schools and New Life is by far the best! Teachers and all staff for that matter, genuinely care about the well being of each and every student!

Ever since Kindergarten my daughter strongly disliked school. She struggled to make friends and had a hard time in the larger classrooms. I felt like she was falling through the cracks and I felt so discouraged. I discovered New Life Chrisitan Academy this past summer and decided to have her give this school a shot. I figured if she didn't like it, there was no harm done and I could send her back to her old school. I have seen immense growth in my daughter after only two months at this school! She is now an honor roll student and she gets along with all the children in her class. She's a happier person all around, and for that I am blessed and grateful. The staff is absolutely amazing! Thank you to all of the staff at NLCA, all of you are truly a gift from God!

New Life Christian Academy is an awesome school that cares about each and every student. Not only do they strive to be the best academically, they encourage the students to be the best spiritually.

Our son is a 12th grader and has been in the school since 6th grate. His SAT scores was 28 and two of his class mates were 30. NL has been a great place for him to develop as a person as well as a student. He has played basketball and soccer and been coached by great people. we could not be happier with a school.
