What is a community school?
A community school combines the benefits of homeschooling, classroom teaching, and the support of a Christ-centered community.
More than anything else, it is that community that makes us unique. The teachers and member families are deeply committed to passing their Christian faith on to the students and thoroughly equipping them academically. They offer each other support, accountability, and encouragement, working as a team to invest their own lives in NCA’s students to
- equip them academically.
- help them develop a love for God and His word.
- encourage in them a deep, life-long relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, students in Pre-K through eighth grade are taught on campus by their classroom teachers from 9:15am – 3:15pm. Every academic teacher has at least a bachelor’s degree in the grade level and subject matter taught.
On Mondays and Wednesdays, students are homeschooled with teacher-directed lesson plans, providing parents the opportunity to be intimately involved in their children’s education.
Friday is Enrichment Day for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Students begin with a school-wide chapel program, which includes a time of student-led praise and worship and an inspirational speaker who instructs and encourages them in their faith. During the rest of the day, students receive instruction from specialty teachers in art, music, drama, Spanish, and athletics.
