General Information International Admission Process
New Covenant Academy is an accredited Christian school with a challenging academic program. Because of the nature of the program, certain students, (especially those who may have learning difficulties or may have trouble following directions) may have difficulty in meeting the Academy’s standards. Therefore, the admission process is designed to identify those students entering grades 9 through 12 who demonstrate motivation and the ability to fulfill the Academy’s academic, character, spiritual, and behavior requirements. In reviewing applications, the Admissions Team considers academic performance, standardized test results, teacher and pastor recommendations, and individual and family characteristics. NCA does not place students in host homes, however, we require our international students to live in an English speaking Christian host home. Students must have strong English speaking skills in order to be successful in our academic program.
