A QUALITY EDUCATION WITH HIGH STANDARDS

KINDERGARTEN THROUGH 8TH GRADE

NCA has offered a Christian education choice to parents in the Lacey/Olympia area since 1980. We believe each child is unique and important, and meeting each child’s educational, emotional, spiritual, and physical needswhere they are in their developmentis our goal.

STEAM project-based learning is implemented by our professional and caring staff, who consistently receive up-to date training. On-campus speech/language and occupational therapists coordinate with teachers to provide support where needed (privately funded through insurance). Response to Intervention guidelines are in place so that all students receive a quality education.

Junior high students

JUNIOR HIGH — GRADES 7-8

In addition to the benefits of the elementary school, the junior high program is comprised of 7th and 8th grades and bridges the transition from the homeroom-based model of the elementary program to the pre-college atmosphere of high school.

The junior high program emphasizes learning the basic skills of each discipline as well as critical thinking, decision-making, and interpersonal relations. The curriculum for this age group allows for the individuality of each student, while emphasizing the acquisition of academic knowledge and life skills. Students learn to frame the appropriate questions, to find the information when they need it, to be life-long learners, and to allow them to participate actively in the exciting age of information.
