Do not put your child in this so called Christian school. Bridget Haney is a joke, better business bureau has been contacted. This place needs to be shut down.

Our child is enjoying his second year at NCLA. We're pleased with the smaller class size and individualized student focus. The instructors are well trained, and the principal administrators (Pastor Webb & Wife) are wonderful, hard working individuals who selflessly do God's work each day to help provide an affordable option for parents who wish to abstain from the public education system and offer their children a Christ-centered education alternative. We hope to be back next year.

Great School! The small class sizes allow the children to be given more one on one instruction. Also, I love the "family" feeling you get from New Life. Parents and grandparents are always invited to the special monthly events they have. I like the A.C.E. curriculum because my child is taught based on their learning level, and they are given one on one instruction time.

I highly recommend New Life Christian Academy. The pastor and his wife are dedicated to providing a loving, Christian environment for each and every child. As a parent, I am confident that my child is receiving a quality Christian education surrounded by supportive and caring teachers and staff. The small classrooms offer a more individualized learning situation and the A.C.E. curriculum has allowed my son to set his own goals and work at his own pace while motivating him to take responsibility and achieve confidence and pride in what he has accomplished. If you are wanting a solid Christian-based education for your child and are willing to get involved in your child s spiritual growth as well as their academic growth, then New Life Christian Academy is the partner you want on your team.

Horrible! Owners/pastor and his wife have no patience with children. Poorly run, poor eductation. Backwards way of thinking.

My daughters attended New Life through there elementry years. Our family loved the school and the environment. Each staff member is friendly and cares for the students. The pastor and his wife( who act as the schools administration) are very kind and helpful , offering help and support. The ABEKA curriculum is very good for the elementery students teaching them the phonetic structure they need, and the ACE program is wonderul for the older students as well. Each child is know by name as well as each parents. The teachers make it a point to acknowledge and help the students who may struggle, The small classroom size is wonderful for one on one help. I love this school and would recommend it to anyone.

As a student I enjoyed this school. I liked the school because I learned at a faster and better rate. I like the many activities the school provided for the students. I liked that we had small classrooms and not many students in the classes. I liked the lunch choices and not having to eat cafeteria food. I loved the Webbs. They are nice, kind, caring people, who helped me through my 3 years of attending. I would suggest this school to many people.__ Dakota Helms

My grandson has attended NLCA for several years now and has had a wonderful experiece. The teachers are loving and caring. The curriculum has been great. The spiritual experience and opportunity to pray in class has ment the most to our family.

My son has been throught the K3 and K4 programs, and will likely attend Kindergarden here. He loves it, the teachers and staff have been very encouraging and loving to him, and it has been a great experience. One child (out of 14) in his class was dismissed for bad behaviour, and based on what I saw it was well deserved. They have a good schedule, 'just enough' religious influence for my family, and he loves it. btw, my daughter will attend next year also.

My son has been with New Life for day care pre-k, K and is enrolled to start 1st grade. I would never consider sending him anywhere else. The staff treats the kids like they are part of their own family, they cry with them and laugh with them. What a blessing they have been. Dawn G Hooper

I did not find the atmosphere to be nurturing or christlike at NLCA. The school does not discipline properly and my child was bullied on a daily basis. I found them to be biased and not forthright at all. Look elsewhere.

The principle is wonderful, and the teachers are very sweet people. Though, the lessons are taught via the T.V., much like the BECCA homeschooling series are set up. If your child does not sit still, or self focus easily, this school is not the best option.

Our child is transferred from a different school. We love NLCA. The teachers are very nice and patient with kids. We will highly recommend this school.

My child has been at NLCA for one year. He has completed k-4 and will be going to k-5 next year. He is an only child, and his transition has been very good with the love and staff at NLCA. The administrative staff and teachers are very dedicated and committed to all the children. My son will attend k-5 this year at NLCA. He can already count to 100. Recite his abc's and read site words. He also receives alot of love from his teachers, and has a positive self-esteem. He enjoys weekly chapel, and can pray at school. I would recommend NLCA to all parents.

My daughter is in 1st grade and has been with NLCA since preschool. We highly recommend them. The school offers small classes with lots of love to go around. We love the values and morals that NLCA has to offer.
