Neuse Christian Academy 5

One of the things I like about NCA is that it really does have a family feel. Although my child's teacher is in her second year at NCA, many of them have been here for 10-20 years. I also like that my child's teacher is a graduate of Neuse. I think it says something about a school that its graduates want to come back and teach at their alma mater. It's great to see my son excited about learning. We plan to be a part of the Neuse family for a long time!

The middle and high school academics at Neuse Christian Academy (NCA) are average to above average. My children did extremely well academically without much effort. Our family sacrificed a more challenging curriculum for the small environment. We had issues with the administration and some teachers. Despite being fully aware of a disability with my child, the administration attributed some of my child's actions to a behavior issue which was not the case. NCA was not honest. Instead of working with us on a positive plan, they became frustrated and placed the entire blame on my child. The school's behavior was not Christian and was disappointing for a school who claims to be Christian. They failed to live up to its mission of supporting families. In addition many who work at the school are related, or are fellow church members. There are instances of mother, son, daughter, sister-in-law, youth group pastor from another church, etc. working at the school. One has to question the hiring practices and if the best people are employed. Also, with the quality of families and students attending NCA, there should be more students attending four year colleges after graduation. The college planning and advising need to be improved and overhauled.

We are very happy with our experience at NCA. The teachers are caring and provide Christian centered support and guidance. The academics appear to be carefully researched, planned, and delivered.

No, all the teachers care about is getting a pay check. I even believe some teachers are there to just treat the kids terrible and completely control the kids
