Jr. High

Jr. High (Grades 7-8) is Located Just .6 Mile from Cox Campus

 

Liberty Campus opened for student occupancy on January 22, 2019.  This educational space is designed to meet the needs of NCA's 5-8th grade students.  This 10-acre campus offers a gymnasium, chapel, cafeteria, office space, ample parking, and outdoor spaces.  Classrooms are located on both floors with 5/6 on the upper floor and 7/8 on the main floor.  Remodeling has been ongoing since summer 2017.

Start and end times of school have been staggered to make it possible for families with multiple children enrolled at the Cox Campus to manage drop-off and pick-up of students within reasonable time frames.

Seventh and Eighth Grade

 
 
The New Covenant Academy Jr. High School is founded on the belief that young people have distinct developmental needs.  The life of the Jr. High student is filled with physical, emotional, academic, and spiritual changes.  The Jr. High School program actively engages potential, energy and abilities.  Equal attention is devoted to emerging interpersonal skills and lifelong learning skills and habits.  The New Covenant Academy Jr. High is a place where students know they are cared for and are challenged to find success in a variety of areas.  The Jr. High is a place of transition, where increasing emphasis is placed on taking personal responsibility for learning.  More freedom is granted to the seventh and eighth graders than experienced in the intermediate grades.
