Travel Assistance Fund. We would like to remind you that last year the NCA School Committee set up a travel assistance fund to financially assist families who face significant travel expenses to send their children to NCA (i.e., boarding students). This fund is being used by some of our families and is available for donations for those who would like to contribute. If you are interested in this giving opportunity or would like more information, contact Neil or Scott at the high school office. Thank you for your consideration.

Elementary Assembly. The next Elementary Assembly is scheduled for November 22 at 8:00 a.m. Our current spiritual goal is “Diligence”. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.
