WELCOME TO NVCA’s 7TH ACADEMIC YEAR Our theme for the year is found in Isaiah 43:1, “I have called you by name, you are mine!” God has specifically chosen each of you to be a part of our NVCA community this year, and we are honored to welcome you into our family. It promises to be an outstanding year as together we continue to grow, improve, and build an exceptional learning and family community.
OUR RIBBON CUTTING CELEBRATION on Monday was a great way to start off the year as we praised God for the gift of our new campus. Thank you to everyone who made the dream and vision of NVCA's new PS-HS campus a reality. With joy and thanksgiving we opened the doors and welcomed in the hearts and minds of our students, families and friends! Check out our Day 1 video clip on our Facebook page!
WE HAVE HAD A GREAT DEAL OF CHANGE in the last few months and are so appreciative for the grace and understanding you have exhibited as a school community. Undoubtedly there will still be more changes as we begin to fully settle into our new school home. Thank you so much as you reflect the heart and attitude of Christ!

STUDENT TECHNOLOGY USE - We appreciate your patience as we move into using technology at a greater level as a learning tool in our school. The role and purpose of technology, how and when it is used, keeping it safe & secure - are challenges that all Christian schools must journey through as a community. Currently our technology service provider is working on an impressive tech safety system. We will send out detailed information to you about each security component that we are using to provide a safe, online learning environment.
MONDAY’S SOLAR ECLIPSE - Next Monday from 9:10 to 12:00 all NVCA students will be inside and will not go out for recess or lunch. No need to worry about your child inadvertently looking at the sun.
