Shape the Next Generation
Our future belongs to our children. As Christian educators, we have the responsibility to use our influence to change the direction of our culture.
Many schools fail to provide a safe place where students connect and thrive. Lack of physical, social, and emotional safety can rob students of joy each day. If that isn’t enough, the battle for their minds is happening by what is taught in the classroom. The shocking truth is that 70% of Christian teens leave their faith after high school and only 35% of those return to their faith at some point. If we lose the minds of our children, we may lose their heart and God’s will for their life.
Jackson is a senior at New Life Academy and has attended since Middle School. Prior to transferring, he shared that he did not feel physically or emotionally safe at his former school. He was bullied and was suffering emotionally. Once at New Life, he immediately noticed a difference.
That’s why we’re on a mission to help students flourish by creating a community where they are known, loved, and valued. When students thrive, Kingdom education can develop their hearts, minds, and character. As society’s culture drifts further from moral goodness, we’re preparing students to stand firm in their beliefs while equipping them to be critical thinkers, creative problem solvers, and influential communicators ready for a future that we can’t yet imagine.
But we need your help. Our goal for the remainder of 2020 is to raise $200,000. Please pray about supporting New Life Academy with a gift that will activate an incredibly generous $100,00 matching gift.
With your help we can further the impact of Kingdom education, putting students like Jackson on a trajectory to live remarkable lives that will change a broken world. You can Shape the Next Generation of faith-filled, future-ready graduates.

Shape the Next Generation Annual Giving Campaign raises funds for...
Did you know that 1 in 4 NLA students receive variable tuition? Your annual gift helps those students who need a little help to attend the academy.
Part of this fundraising effort is so that we can continue to provide Variable Tuition to families for whom a private, Christian education is too much to afford. These families understand how important it is to send their children to a school where Jesus is the guiding focus, but their economic reality means they can’t give their kids this opportunity without help. That’s where our Variable Tuition kicks in and makes up the difference.
STEAM education is best defined as Science and Technology, interpreted through Engineering and the Arts, all based in Mathematical elements. We want students to learn contextually, where subjects overlap, and the learning structure is adaptable for personalized development.
When the 15% Innovation Portfolio (15% IP) program launched, the science and math teachers at the Academy knew that coding and engineering jobs were growing at a rapid pace and that their students needed to be prepared to enter these exploding fields of study.
Your generous gift elevates every student’s experience in a way that transforms their lives for eternity. We want an EXTRAORDINARY STEAM student experience.
Faith and Spiritual Development for each student is at the very heart of the mission of New Life Academy. Guest speakers, special projects, outreach opportunities, student leadership development and chapel offerings are yet another mission-appropriate way for you to support the Academy
Theatre, Music and Visual Arts are a critical and essential part of the education of every young person. Your gift to the Better Together Annual Giving Campaign will support the visual arts, drama, and choir programs. Our goal is to enhance which student’s ability to discover their God-given artistic abilities, self-confidence, and creative expression.
The value of athletics at NLA is significant and cannot be overlooked. On average, 78 percent of students in grades 6-12 participate in organized sports. Our athletics program stresses personal and team excellence for athletes. It has a profound impact on our students, the school culture, as well as our community.
Athletics is powerful and transcendent. It can bridge gaps, bring people together, teach some of life’s most valuable lessons, provide opportunities for leadership, and gives many participants unbelievable, life-altering understanding of competition, perseverance, discipline, and commitment.
Your gift to the Better Together Annual Giving Campaign provides much-needed equipment to student-athletes.
The Academy strives to recruit and retain a diverse faculty who teach to the highest standards, are passionate about educating your children and are excellent Christian role models. Your gift to the Faculty Development fund provides opportunities for professional growth and development.
