Growth Through Each Division at NLA
At New Life Academy, our focus is on developing and educating each student to be faith-filled and future-ready. Through our Christ-centered community, students will experience growth both inside and outside the classroom. Our classes, chapels, and extracurriculars are designed to support the academic, spiritual, and social goals of each division in preparation for what your student will do next.
