I do find it a little fishy that there are 22 reviews from NRCA administrators, teachers and what I can assume to be "chosen" parents on the same date.....Was it to increase the community rating????? If you scroll down past the March 22, 2016 reviews you will get a more accurate and unbiased opinions.
We would like to thank Dr. Sherrill. He gave our child many wonderful academic, spiritual and cultural experiences. The Europe trip gave our child a life-long love of travel. His commitment to Kingdom Education is genuine and contagious. He loves the Bible and has a heart for missions. Dr. Sherrill passionately believes in the importance of the family and the local church. He loves and cares for each student. Our family considers him one of the most influential people in our child's life. NRCA changed our lives and we are grateful.
Our child graduated several years ago from NRCA. It was an excellent education academically and biblically. The NRCA education prepared our child to make the Dean's List at two universities. The Bible teaching at NRCA has had a life-long influence on our entire family. As parents, we are grateful for the biblical worldview that was instilled in our child. After receiving a master's degree, our child still says that the NRCA teachers were the best instructors. They were godly role models. The Superintendent gave a 150% of his best efforts every day to ensure that each child received the best quality Christian education possible. The learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom were priceless. NRCA is the total package.
The perception of homework is dependent on the student. NRCA gives homework that is relevant for learning that reinforces concepts to prepare students for their tests. This is evident in the scores students receive on their End of Grade assessments (Terra Nova). Also, NRCA graduates are thankful for their academic preparation prior to college.
NRCA is a highly academic environment and fosters an attitude of perseverance in students. In addition, coaches at NRCA not only develops these characteristics in athletics, they also are examples to their players.
These character traits are all components of NRCA's core values and expected student outcomes. Elementary students (I have two) have monthly character traits that they encourage students to demonstrate. Throughout the experiences at NRCA, the school definitely tries to develop a biblical worldview in their students' lives.
