NCA Virtual Academy is honored to be in its second year of serving 3rd-8th grade students and families. The NCA Virtual Academy is a flexible learning model that provides opportunities for self-paced independent learning. Learning is centered around high academic expectations implementing a Christ-centered curriculum, which meets the individualized needs of each student. Our community is focused on building Christ-centered relationships and living out our vision of “Transformed lives…transform lives” with students and families with face-to-face experiences to engage students.

The NCA Virtual Academy provides a hybrid program where students can learn at their own pace through independent study with a teacher facilitator that guides students on their academic track. Students also have the opportunity to be involved in on campus electives, programs, Lions Club Enrichment classes, sports, and activities. We are honored to work with our wonderful students, our highly qualified and dedicated staff, and the supportive parents and community members that make NCA a Blue Ribbon school.

The National Blue Ribbon standards of excellence in learning extends to our NCA Virtual Academy through a Christ-centered curriculum in Biblical Studies, Mathematics, Science, English Language Arts, and Social Studies. NCA is devoted to our unique STEM initiatives providing multiple enrichment opportunities, producing well-rounded, engaged, and accomplished students. Our NCA Fine Arts and elective courses allow all NCA students to excel with a complete academic preparation program while being encouraged to find their individual passions. Our faculty guides, encourages, and leads students during their foundational and innovative learning journey and is proud to provide a family-centered, nurturing environment enabling our students to thrive.

Weekly Chapels, community service programs, field trips, and numerous extracurricular activities allow students to try new things and explore various interests. NCA Virtual Academy students will have many opportunities to stretch, grow, and thrive, while wrapped in the love of Christ lived out daily by our faculty and staff.

Who we serve?

The NCA Virtual Academy is for any student in grades 3rd-8th. Whether your child is an athlete, advanced learner, homeschooler, career- or college-bound—or any situation in between—they’ll enjoy a high-quality Christ-centered education that fits their needs.
