Academics

Proverbs 9:9 "Instruct the wise and they will be wiser. Teach the righteous and they will learn even more."

Graduates from NCA develop a well-rounded portfolio by the time they are applying for college. While faith, leadership, fine arts, and athletic development are cornerstones; a rigorous, college track academic program is the pillar.  Each division (elementary, intermediate, jr. high school and high school) has an academic program that enables students to develop the resources to become independent critical thinkers, decision-makers, and leaders. Administrators and our professional team of educators work hard to collaborate and utilize ongoing assessments of student achievement to drive and improve on student success.

 

Textbooks and Supplies

 

All students will be issued textbooks that are the property of NCA. Some textbooks are consumable; however, others are texts that will be used from year to year.  All non-consumable textbooks must be covered by the end of the first full week of school. Book fines will be assessed for damaged or lost books. A classroom supply list will be furnished so that appropriate supplies may be purchased prior to the start of the school year. The Pride Yearbook is not included in the book fee and will need to be purchased separately.

 

Student Academic Progress and Parent Communication

 

At New Covenant Academy, the partnership between the family and the Academy is considered to be vital to the student's overall success. Therefore, NCA has instituted an online password protected system, by which parents may log on to their students online record and be provided on-the-spot information regarding grades, homework assignments, and important class information.  Additionally, teachers welcome the opportunity to visit with parents regarding their student's progress via scheduled parent/teacher conferences, as well as phone calls and email exchanges.

  • The NCA Board is taking nominations to serve on th

    Announcement:  The NCA Board is Now Taking Nominations to Serve on the Board of Directors.  Deadline is Friday, March 13 for submissions. 

    Attention Parents and Employees:

    As you may know, NCA is governed by a self-perpetuating, independent board of volunteers, consisting of members of the parent body, and the surrounding community.  

    Board members make a commitment to serve for a single term of three years and can continue a second consecutive term.   Following the completion of a second three-year-term, board members must cease service for a period of one year of rest and may come back to serve if approved by the board.  The board has identified the need for new board members.  

    Areas of specific need include individuals with the ability or knowledge in the areas of either philanthropy or construction/facility or NCA parents or grandparents with students in 5-12 grade or female representation to balance the demographics of the board; however, it is not absolutely necessary to have that background to be considered.

    It is important to note that nominees with children at NCA must have been enrolled for a minimum of 2 years, must have all their qualifying children enrolled at NCA, and cannot have an NCA employee in their family. (See attachment for details on board qualifications).

    A board member does not necessarily have to be a member of the NCA community if they are in a profession with a background that would benefit the school and have a passion for Christian education.

    In accordance with policy, the chairman of the board, Rev. Matt Martin, has appointed three board members to chair the sub-committee for placing new board members.  They are Mrs. Lisa Edwards (who is acting chairman of the committee), Dr. Kendra Morrison, and Mr. Todd Yearack  The full committee includes the Board Chairman, Chief Executive Officers (CAO & CFO), two faculty members (Elementary & Secondary Division faculty representatives) and a member of the Parent Leadership Team.

    If you wish to serve on the board or know of someone you would like to nominate, please submit their name and contact information to Kelly Sorci, Board Secretary by Friday, March 13, 2020, at ksorci@newcovenant.net or (417) 887-9848 ext. 453.  She will then give those names over to the nominating committee to contact and begin the process.

    PROCESS/PATH TO NCA BOARD MEMBERSHIP 

    1. A member of The Board Nomination Committee will contact the candidate asking if they wish to move forward with the process following their nomination and answer any potential questions they may have.
    2. The candidate will be given an application and a pastor's recommendation to complete.
    3. The applicant returns that paperwork to the board secretary.
    4. The committee will conduct a panel interview in March or April lasting approx. 1 hour.
    5. Following formal interviews with appropriate candidates and prior to submitting its shortlist of Board member candidate names to the Board of Directors, the nominating committee will publish its shortlist of candidate names to seek input from the public.  Written comments may be emailed to the chairman of the nominating committee, Mrs. Lisa Edwards at ledwards@newcovenant.net.  
    6. The board nominating committee makes a recommendation for new members following the interview and vetting process in April  In August, the candidate attends his/her first board meeting as a non-voting observer.  The candidate becomes a full voting member in the month of September.  

    Thank you for your prayerful consideration of serving or nominating individuals to this very important role.
