If you’re curious to know more about the classical model, ask questions about our inaugural year 2024 (DV), or begin the application process please connect with us.

One of the principles of Christian classical education is that virtue is of far greater importance than academics, and unless virtues are being practiced, academics cannot follow. At NCA, we seek to cultivate these virtues in ourselves, for the blessing of one another and for the souls in our community.

Gratitude & Joy

A grateful and joyful heart is a necessary condition of focused, meaningful, and productive work. Gratitude makes wonder, curiosity, and true education possible in any circumstance.

Self-governance

Leadership must be self-controlled, or it descends into petty tyranny. Self-governance is about ruling one’s desires, emotions, and body in line with Scripture. We cannot expect to lead others if we do not faithfully govern ourselves.

Fellowship & Repentance

We strive to maintain fellowship and build culture by practicing quick repentance, and teaching our students to do the same, calling out sin by its biblical language in ourselves first.

Good Order & Discipline

Good order begins with ordering ourselves around Christ as the cornerstone, without which nothing else lines up. We cultivate good order in ourselves and in our school by focused discipline, playing the long game of doing the work that’s been set before us, and trusting that it will bear fruit.

Gender Distinctives

Instead of confusing our students by denying or suppressing the basic differences between boys and girls, we want to model virtue for our children in distinctly feminine and masculine ways.

An Embodied Education

Christian classical education self-consciously follows a Christian paideia – the inescapable part of upbringing and education that forms the soul, training students both inside and outside of the classroom to love the biblical standards of what is true, good, and beautiful.

“Grounded in piety, Christian classical education is the transmission of the culture of the Church through a faculty of friends who love the truth by cultivating virtue in the students in body, heart, and mind, and nurturing their love for wisdom and faithful service of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
