Last year we transferred from a wonderful Christian school in South Carolina to NCA in Washington State for the 2010-11 year. It was hard to leave our former school because it was small & very hands-on, but thankfully NCA has been fantastic. The teachers are organized, intelligent, Christ loving & adore the children. They have a personal investment in each child & really cared that our kids were comfortable at their new school. The best part, besides our sense of belonging & that our kids are doing so well, is the curriculum. In many areas NCA kids are learning at two grades level higher, plus Spanish & a musical instrument are part of their regular academics. We were happily surprised to learn over the summer that both our kids were advanced to a grade higher in math for this year. This school has a more advanced Science program, & it's good to know that our kids are learning about the environment, being green, & recycling (one area sorely lacking in SC). We appreciate the higher racial diversity here too. The Principal & Vice Principals are very involved & caring, and the Principal has an amazing memory of each child even though there are over 900 students. It's amazing here & we are truly pleased. We highly recommend NCA to others whenever we get the chance!
