    I have five children currently attending NRCA and their skills and interests are vast. NRCA has something for each child. I and my children love ALL the activities from drama (best plays and musicals around!) speech and debate, math athletes, Art, robotics and the best VOLLEYBALL program around!

    All three of my children have attended NRCA since Kindergarten. My oldest graduated in 2018 at is now at UNC-Chapel Hill, my other two are in still in high school and middle school. NRCA is not perfect but it is an excellent school and certainly better than any public school in NC. The parents are generally well educated, fairly wealthy and very involved in the school and children's lives. NRCA offers a good amount of Honors and AP classes but they need to add AP Environmental Science. Music and Arts programs are strong, as are most of the sports teams. NRCA's football program needs more attention. The entire mission of NRCA is college readiness via a Christian education. If your child isn't going to college then NRCA is probably not the best place for them.
    I have attended North Raleigh Christian Academt for two years. North Raleigh Christian Academy provides all the important things a person would want to know such as: great teachers, welcoming students, and great opportunities for one to partake in. By describing the teachers, I say each teacher has their own unique way of teaching. They all know their material and prepare students well for any quizzes or test. Most of the teachers are understanding and merciful towards the student’s grades. Most of the students are very welcoming especially those that have attended for many years. They welcome you to sit with them at lunch as well as shadow you to your classrooms if you ever get lost. The students are very supportive as well. Lastly, North Raleigh Christian Academy offers many opportunities whether they are sports or extracurriculars. They are good number of sports to choose from and there are many clubs as well.
