A NOTE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL, JASON SONG
People wondered, "Can a Christian school be highly academic yet remain solidly Christian?" Well, NCA answers that question with a resounding "YES!" Since 1999, NCA has been providing high quality college prep and solid Christian education to its students. Our motto - Educate, Enable, and Equip the Christian Leaders of Tomorrow - captures the vision and mission of NCA.
NCA is a WASC accredited (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) IB (International Baccalaureate) School offering the Diploma Program. 100% of NCA's graduates move on to at least one of the Top 50 Public Universities in the US, and many gain acceptance to fine institutions such as Yale, U. Penn, Cornell, Carnegie-Mellon, Duke, Wesleyan, Haverford, Davidson, Rhode Island School of Design, West Point, UCLA, UC Berkeley, USC, Boston College, Pepperdine, and other tier-one, highly selective schools. NCA's Stanford Test and SAT scores place the school in the top 7-10% of schools in the nation, and top 7% in California.
Furthermore, NCA is known for its:
outstanding student achievement results
safe and nurturing environment
highly effective and passionate teachers
effective integration of technology in curriculum, instruction, and assessment
instruction driven by data and research-proven methods
As a nonprofit Christian ministry, NCA is affordable yet produces student achievement results comparable to schools that demand 2-4 times in tuition and fees. NCA even offers financial aid and scholarships to qualified students and families.
Even in tough economic times, NCA is thriving as it continues to serve its students and school community. I invite you to learn more about NCA and contact us if you have any questions. God bless!
NCA was established in 1999 by Dr. and Mrs. Song. 11 students, 3 teachers, and 1 part-time chaplain made up the entire school. Since then, NCA has grown to 170+ students in K-12, and currently 15 full-time teachers, 6 staff members, and 5 administrators serve the students.
NCA was fully accredited by Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in 2005. NCA is also a member school of Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and California Association of Private School Organizations (CAPSO). In 2010, NCA was authorized as an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme School.
NCA is a member of CIF's International League. In the 2018-19 school year, the Girls Volleyball team won its division and made it to playoffs for the first time in NCA history, following the legacy of the Boys Basketball team. We launched a Boys Soccer team in 2018, currently playing 7 on 7. We plan to offer soccer and other programs as CIF sports in the near future. As of the 2023-2024 school year, NCA is celebrating 25 years of operation. Stay tuned for NCA's exciting next chapter!
