Frequently Asked Questions
Why choose a Christian private school?
Individual Attention - At NTCA your child will receive personal attention in classes that range from 10 to 14 students. Small class sizes and low student to teacher ratios, a teacher is able to give students the individual attention they deserve.
Parental Involvement - At NTCA we expect parents to be actively involved in their child's education. The concept of a three way partnership is an important part of the way private schools work.
Academics - At NTCA we value high academic standards, teaching can be real and authentic because the school curriculum is not bound by state regulations or testing. We can focus on your child’s educational needs and use different kinds of educational methods and approaches so that students discover that learning is exciting and full of possibilities.
Biblical Teaching - NTCA was founded on the belief that the spiritual teaching is as important as the academic teaching in the school curriculum. The Biblical world view is meshed into every academic subject. The environment is nurturing and loving with Christian teachers who value each individual child.

What is your inclement weather policy?
In the event of inclement weather, we will choose from three options - NTCA will close, delay the opening of school or remain open. We will alert families through e-mail, Facebook and Twitter, or you can tune into KLTY radio station to get the latest closing information. Safety is our primary concern in deciding whether school opens during inclement weather. It is impossible to know the road conditions in all areas, so we urge you to use your own judgment in deciding whether your child should go to school.
