The staff and administration truly care about the students. They are not just a number and a test score. The school is more concerned with helping mold brilliant, caring, respectful students than scoring well on a test. The students receive a top notch education and are held to a high standard.

I belive that NCA is a great school. My child is a student there and has been reading since K4. She took the ACT as a 10 grader and scored a 25.

Elementary is way ahead of Newton county, kids are reading in K-4. the High school does not offer the choice of classes as Newton County. Like all schools it has good and bad teachers. Overall a Good School where your child is given opportunity to participate in any sport he/she chooses. I graduated and my son who is a 10th grader has made 26 on ACT, He is definitely learning

Poor education, poor staff. If you want to pay for your childs diploma this is the school, if you want your child educated do not send them to this school... I am a former student, I transfered there after 9th grade and in 11th grade we were on the same material as Newton County Public school.....

I was recently a student at NCA. Let me jsut say, they provide the care needed for kids. They have excellent discipline, and they are very well kept-together. I continue to admire this school, as shall others. I wish the school the best of luck

I believe Newton County Academy is a great school. It provides a quality education with a Christian atmosphere. I graduated a few years ago, and I am now a successful college student. One downfall is there is not much a music program. They do not have a band. It is a very small school. I graduated with a class of 30.

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.
