Introduction to our Families

PTF Mission:

NCA’s Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) exists to support student development through serving, strengthening, and connecting the NCA community.


  • Promote parent involvement in school activities.
  • Encourage teachers by providing parent support & assistance in the classroom.
  • Provide financial assistance for special projects, or needs of the school as PTF funds are available.
  • Volunteer time and talents for special events and fund raising activities.
  • Provide a mechanism for parents to meet and fellowship with other parents.


All parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and guardians are automatically members of the PTF.  No membership process and no dues.  You are a member!

“NCA & PTF Navigating Together” (Ecclesiastes 4:12)
