A Personal Message from Dr. Johnson


It is my honor to serve as the high school principal at New Covenant Academy! I believe that Christian education has never been as important as it is right now. At NCA, students will hear a biblical worldview from multiple sources covering a multitude of topics. We challenge students to wrestle with difficult topics to develop critical thinking skills that they will carry with them. In addition to work in the classroom, it is a true joy to see students use their gifts and talents in the various extra-curriculars offered at NCA.

While it is a tremendous responsibility to guide a student through the high school years, it is an amazing event to launch them out after graduation. Not only does the graduation ceremony create Warriors for life, but it is also my belief that we launch out world changers!
