All prospective Kindergarten Students are required to participate in a readiness screening (K.I.D.S. = Kindergarten Inventory of Developmental Skills). Prospective students must demonstrate their readiness to function at the grade level for which they are applying. A diagnostic test, the most recent report card and standardized test results from their previous school will be required.
All students at NCA take a comprehensive battery of Nationally Norm Referenced Tests each spring. This will let us know what concepts your student has mastered, how far they have progressed from year to year, and how they compare with other students across the country. Our students traditionally do very well!

Annual fund – Tax-Deductible Gifts
Nazarene Christian Academy has made every effort to keep tuition affordable. Tuition is not tax-deductible. In charity and faith the Board has budgeted expecting tax-deductible contributions equal to approximately $300 per student. We welcome your love gifts, in the amount the Lord enables – not equal gifts but equal sacrifices. Some may do much more and others a little less. Some may do volunteer service or contribute other material gifts in–lieu of cash gifts. It also takes the help of grandparents, local businesses and other friends to meet the total need.
