Enter an elementary classroom at NCA and you’ll be greeted with a room full of smiling faces.
Laughter abounds as students work together. They’re having fun, and, at the same time, developing their social, intellectual, and emotional abilities in a loving and Christ-centered environment. It is not uncommon to find younger and older students working together as “reading buddies” or in “Chapel Squads”.
NCA now offers a Kindergarten English Language Learners (ELL) Program
NCA is committed to a small school community structure. Therefore, we have fashioned K-2nd, 3rd-5th, 6th-8th into small school learning communities with an exclusive principal. Each grade level team of teachers collaborates in Professional Learning Communities to lead student learning and assessment.
Maximum class sizes range between 22 students for Kindergarten to 25 students in 8th Grade. Educational Assistants (EA’s) are assigned to the classes when class capacity is reached. NCA's average class size for all K-8 classes this year is 21.7 in comparison to the national average of 25 per class.
