I was a student at New Life, and if you want your child brainwashed into being a Christian go right ahead and send them there. Math and English were exceptionally taught at New Life and I was ahead of others my age, but I had to relearn History and Science once in college because it was taught from the "Christian Perspective".

My daughter has attended NLCA for the past two years. I appreciate the teachers and staff at the school. They care about the kids. The education is Bible based and beneficial. They use the Beka curriculum which is a high standard. We have been very pleased with the education at this school. It is much better than the public school we left. The atmosphere is good and the kids are learning.

Im a new believer of the christian faith.. I recently had crisis in my life and going to church.. learning to love and trust god has helped me understand my life better. This school teaches to love god and believe in his faith. While helping to learn the basic academic principles needed in life. Both will further these children along and personally I think its wonderful. God Bless!

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.
