1 Corinthians 16:13 ~ “Be on guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.” 


DOGS stands for Dads of Great Students!  That’s You! Since we launched our NCA WatchDOGS program in 2013, our WatchDOGS have become a very valuable asset to NCA and a blessing to those who chose to volunteer! The first year we started the program, 200 Dads signed up and volunteered!

The idea is simple…get Dads in school with their kids! Dads, Grandfathers, Uncles, etc. volunteer two days during the school year, and provide NCA students with a positive male role model. WatchDOGS interact with NCA students during arrival, in classrooms, on the playground, in the halls and lunchroom.  In addition, security walks are done several times throughout the day around the perimeter of our campus to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Our goal is to have at least one or two Dads (or Grandfathers, Uncles, etc…) on campus each school day.
