The team performed well for the meet, especially since it was the first time for most of the students. Great team, NVCA!

ACSTO REPORT: We are pleased to share that NVCA had a 32% increase in tax credit donations for our students during this year. This is an increase of $60,252 from last year! We had 98 new tax credit donors during the year as well. The amount raised includes both the amount our parents raise for their children and also what NVCA raises to help fund our students with our financial aid grant program.

Campus Newsletter #351NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER: Last Thursday, preschool – 8th grade students participated in 4 National Day of Prayer activities. Students prayed for our country, leaders, and military at the flag pole, for our students and families at our prayer wall, created a prayer chain, and prayed to thank God for healing us from our sins and sicknesses. What a special day to spend time praising and praying to the Lord.
