Why NVCA

Mission:
Beginning with our mission statement, the spiritual emphasis and biblical view influences our curriculum, weekly chapel services and special programs. The goal of North Valley Christian Academy is to honor the Lord Jesus Christ by providing students an education based upon academic excellence and biblical values. A Christ-centered partnership between parents and school is encouraged.

Testing:
Each year our students in grades 2-8 score in the top 15% in the nation on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills.

Biblical Worldview:
Education at North Valley Christian Academy is approached from a biblical perspective that recognizes the sovereignty and authority of God. A carefully selected curriculum academically challenges preschool, elementary and middle school students while upholding the Christian standards we seek to develop. Prayer and Bible classes are an important part of the daily schedule for students.

Inspirational Christian Culture:
Visitors regularly comment on the unique and loving environment at North Valley Christian Academy.   Students are taught by Christian educators about God’s purpose, His love and will for their life.  Biblical standards permeate classroom and office management.  On field trips and in after school activities, NVCA is often complimented for having students with Christ-like attitudes and behavior.

Faculty:
The caring, committed faculty have educational degrees and are professionally certified.

Technology:
The appropriate integration of education, learning, and technology is an important component of the well-rounded and specialized academic program at NVCA. Technology provides and enhances a wealth of learning and teaching opportunities that otherwise would not be possible.

We understand that the world of the present and the future will require our students to be highly comfortable and competent with using many different types of hardware and software resources in order to work, play and live. At NVCA, we operate with a technology “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) program, in which all high school students are required to provide their own suitable device. NVCA provides a list of minimum hardware and software requirements, with recommendations.

Incredible Involvement:
A high percent of family involvement enriches the success of NVCA. NVCA is made up of parents and volunteers from the community who give freely of their time and talents to make NVCA the best it can be.
