NLCA was founded in 1990 on the home of Pastors Willie and Annie Blackmon to advance christian principles and ideas. The New Life Christian Academy in Pike County uses the ABeka curriculum from preschool through 12th grade students. The A Beka Book curriculum provides christian schools with outstanding course studies built on a foundation of academic excellence and christian character teachings. Our students are expected to excel in courses that stimulate and challenge them as they prepare their life’s foundation.
NLCA is a ministry of New Life Christian Church and it’s the church that provides equipment and other items necessary to the school’s operation with tuition and registration fees used to supplement the cost. It’s the policy of NLCA to engage only personnel who complement your child’s christian home training through their dedication, recognized education training and successful experience. Healthy lunches are prepared on campus.
It is a requirement of students attending NLCA to wear uniforms. Parent may logon to our school webstore to order ties for boys (grades 1-12), jumpers/skirts and/or yellow/light blue skirts for girls. Please note that we do not wear white shirts any longer. Girls wear blue/gold skirts or jumpers with yellow or light blue peter pan collared blouses. Blazers are required for all students (grades 1-12). French Toast catalogs are available in the school office. Dress code is covered in detail during Orientation/Open House.
Our School has been accredited by ACTS, one of the most important accreditation programs in the nation.
The purpose of the Accreditation Program is to establish high, uniform standards among ACTS member schools. Achievement of accreditation status represents a standard of excellence that is recognized by other institutions and the constituency of the community in which the school is located. Accreditation requirements identify educational and spiritual criteria which establish high expectations for Christian schools.
NLCA is part of the Association of Christian schools, a Protestant association founded in 1978 whose mission is to strengthen Christian schools and equip its educators as they prepare students academically and encourages them to become devoted followers of Jesus Christ. NLCA welcomes the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver your and your child the best Christian education in the Pike County area.
