Academy of the New Church - Girls School Reviews

I was very active in the performing arts aspect of the school. The opportunities ANC provides for students in the arts is very extensive, considering they do not identify as a performing arts school. I participated in the plays, musicals, dance team, choral, performing arts portfolio class, and a capella groups. I feel that I had a very enriched experience that taught me a lot and helped me grow into the performer I am today.
However, I did push back a bit against the very strict rules regarding dress codes, PDA, speech, etc. It's a private church school which I understand, but there were times when it felt like the faculty would try to shame us into following the rules. As we marched to chapel every morning, the teachers would be there, looking us up and down to make sure our skirts were long enough and that we were wearing the correct color socks...
Overall, I enjoyed my time at ANC. I would just like there to be a bit more flexibility and support at such an important stage in life.

ANC is a small school with a total student population of around 300. It is based off the core values of New Church teachings and these are woven into every course. Some students may find this frustrating at times but in the end, the religious and spiritual aspects have brung our education to a deeper level, learning how to apply the concepts we learn to this life and the next.

ANC is a private boarding school and this creates a very unique atmosphere. Approximately half the students commute and half live on campus. The commuter students are able to spend time in the dormitories or the school property any time. I would compare our school to a liberal arts college. You are getting a taste of everything: science, math, art, literature, languages etc. There are also other ways to get involved with academic or other extracurricular activities outside the classroom. We have a community service club; two fraternities and two sororities that focus on building relationships, service and are another way to spend time with your fellow students.

The arts and athletics are also a huge part of the school. I would not be surprised if everyone in the school has at least done one sport in their high school career. Our teams have won countless championships and gone to national tournaments. It is more than winning though. We all want to support each other and going to sports games are one of the most entertaining ways to do that! Another way is through the performing arts. We have a play and a musical every year. I have participated in these for most of my years at ANC and they have given me memories I will never forget.

Of course every school has its downsides. There is the occasional annoying teacher. We do have a uniform and a social dresscode we must follow when we go to any school event. These have posed some conflicts evidently. However, Each and everyday I feel welcome and at home in my school and I have made many memories that I will cherish for years to come.
The reasons I liked the Academy of the New Boys School was because I got the opportunity to be exposed to living in the dorm. Living in the dorm gave me a certain level of independence which brought forth a certain level of responsibility. With me being more responsible I was able to own up to my expectations and do the tasks that were asked of me. At ANC, the teachers were always there and willing to help me. They guided me throughout my years there and I do not think that I would be the person I am today if I hadn't attended the Academy of the New Church Boys School.
