Dual Enrollment:

Our policy states that all juniors and seniors are required to take Bible and History at NSCA. If a student chooses to dual enroll Science and/or English (off campus and doesn’t conflict with NSCA schedule), they will get a credit for an extra Elective class or receive a credit for the cost of an Elective. Exceptions to this policy will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Note: Students are required to complete the previous course before enrolling in the next.


* Study Hall is available to those students wishing to have time on-site to work on homework or get a little extra help from
the supervising tutor.

We expanded to High School in 2018-19 with 9th Grade, and we are adding a grade each school year. In 2020-21, we will be offering high school classes through 12th Grade.. Our High School program is offered on Wednesday/Friday, and students are in classes from 8:15 a.m. - 2:45 p.m. or 3:45 p.m., depending on chosen electives. Students are required to take the Core Subjects plus one elective (all electives offered are based on enrollment and interest). While students are with us, they will gain confidence through lab work, group activities, and lecture/note-taking that will build skills to prepare them for college and beyond! As a general rule, students should plan on spending about one-and-a-half hours per subject on their home days to complete NSCA work. 


In addition to regular classes, we ask students to volunteer at local ministries at least twice per semester. We also offer monthly social gatherings for our high school students, including pajama game night, mystery dinner theater, rock climbing, and lots more!


Our desire is to foster an environment where students become life-long learners with a holistic Christian worldview that will prepare them well for adulthood. We are committed to partnering with parents as they impart to their children strong Christian values, a heart to serve locally and globally and a desire to walk rightly in godly friendships.
