  • Sports:  Competitive athletic program for boys and girls in grades 7-12.  Intramural programs for grades Jr.K-6.
  • Fine-Arts:  Co-curricular classes include Band, Choir, Art, Drama, Library, Speech, Physical Education, Spanish, Computer, Business, and Practical Arts (note: offerings subject to specific grade levels).
  • Spiritual and character development:  Exciting weekly chapel services that challenge students to grow spiritually.  Biblical integration into every subject.  Opportunities for character development and Christian service.
  • Technology: Supporting teacher objectives and student learning, with WiFi, Inspire Technology Initiative which is a BYOD program, computer lab, 7 mobile Chromebook carts, and tablets.  Students use emerging technologies in problem-based, interactive, engaged learning and assessment. 
  • Fun while learning:  Extracurricular activities include field trips, retreats, clubs, academic competitions, international or cross-cultural mission trips, student council, and Christian service projects.
  • Results:  NCA's test results on national achievement and ACT college entrance tests far exceed the national average.
  • School accountability:  New Covenant Academy is accredited by AdvancED and is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International.
  • Academic and athletic competition with both public and private schools:  NCA is a member of the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA). "The MSHSAA promotes the value of participation, sportsmanship, team play, and personal excellence to develop citizens who make positive contributions to their community and support the democratic principles of our state and nation".
  • Affordable Tuition:  Nationally, private education is quite expensive, often with a price tag equal to a college tuition.  At NCA, tuition is almost half of the national average for 7-12th-grade and well below the national average for Jr.K-6th-grade.  A tuition assistance program is also offered to qualifying families.
  • Community:  Year after year, when NCA's families are asked,  "What is your favorite thing about NCA?"; their top answers are:  "the people", "I love my teacher", "I feel like I belong", "my friends", "the support I receive being a part of an extended Christian community of believers with the same goals and values as my own family."
