Numonohi Christian Academy ABCDs

In 2010, the accrediting team challenged our school to consider the our guiding principles (the expected results from our activities as a school). Actions and words come from the overflow of our hearts as Jesus shared in the Sermon on the Mount (Luke 6:43-45). In response to the challenge, the NCA staff developed four main expected results that we desire each student in every grade to learn during his or her time at NCA.

Numonohi ABCDs – the heart that guides the actions of the school

A – Academics 

In Proverbs 22:6, we are told to “Train up [exercise vigorously] a child in the way he should go.” Developing a strong academic foundation provides training for our children to think, to solve problems, and to communicate effectively.

B – Biblical Worldview

Our desire as a Christian academy is that all of our training is grounded on a biblical foundation.  Just as Jesus “came down from heaven – not to do [his own] will, but to do the will of Him Who sent [him]” (John 6:38), we desire that all aspects of our students’ lives be grounded in the will of God which is communicated to us through His word.

C – Changes

We know as Christians our lives will include many changes or transitions as we take up our crosses daily and follow Him (Luke 9:23). Our students face changes developmentally, in the peer groups they encounter, in their spiritual development, and in the place they call “home”.  As a school, we seek to be a source of instruction and help through those changes.

D – Diversity

The body of Christ is made up of many different parts that work together in unity (1 Cor. 12:12).  We want our students to value diversity in our learning styles, home countries, native languages, church and family backgrounds, abilities and much, much more. We desire for students to value the uniqueness of God’s creative work in each individual while also pursuing the power that comes from unifying those different gifts in teamwork.

As the community looks at Numonohi Christian Academy, we hope they will see the overflow of its heart in the development of each child in his or her academics, biblical worldview, ability to face changes, and value of diversity
