Prospective Families

This year, we are excited to have The College Funding Coach present a seminar to us entitled, " Little Known Secrets of Paying for College". This is a FREE seminar offered to NRCA families, but you MUST REGISTER to attend.  

For many families, the high cost of higher education is a daunting proposition. Parents lie awake at night trying to figure out how to afford sending their children to college and still have enough of their hard-earned money to be able to retire. Some families have children attending college next year and others have years to plan; but the fears of tackling these monumental and rising costs are the same. The College Funding Coach® is here to help families figure out HOW to pay for it! Please join us on October 2, 2017 at 7pm for the Little-Known Secrets of Paying for College workshop. This is information you can't afford to miss! 

To RSVP please: Click here

See the attached flyer for more information and testimonials!!

The date of the seminar is Monday, October 2 at 7:00pm and will be held in the NRCA Fine Arts Center. I trust this will be very helpful information as you plan for your children's future.

I hope to see you there!

Many have asked how we can help our fellow schools in the Houston area. We have the Association of Christian Schools (ACSI) and the Southern Baptist Association of Christian Schools (SBACS) reviewing and appraising the needs of our sister schools in the area. We are also reaching out to the ACSI District Representative for the Texas area. Joshua Expeditions is also making contacts with local authorities about bringing groups to help with restoration.

It is too early to access where the greatest need lies. In many cases, the Christian schools were not heavily damaged. However, many of the school staff and school families suffered greatly. The devastation is immense. 

Hopefully, we will know in the next couple of weeks. Wesley Scott, Executive Director of SBACS, is flying to Houston Sept. 28 to provide some direction.

If you desire to give a donation, we are starting a fund that will be used to assist Christian schools in the area. You can give online and designate the gift for "Houston Christian School Relief". Once we know specific needs, we will communicate our plan to assist our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Please pray for our fellow believers in this most difficult time and for those in the islands and Florida who are facing another catastrophic storm.

Here are a few quotes from students after previous years' Career Day:

  • "God may have a different plan for me than I previously thought."
  • "It's important to choose a career that I really like."
  • "I learned that I need to start thinking about my future and what I want to do."


If you would be willing to volunteer part of your morning on Tuesday, November 14 and make a huge impact on our students, please register by clicking the link below.

NRCA Informational Meeting

in the Library at NRCA

(Please park in the front of the building and use the main entrance) 

Dear NRCA Parents & Friends,
NRCA established an International Student Program six years ago.  Today, we have 37 International Students from three different countries.  The mission of the program is to fulfill Acts 1:8 of taking Kingdom education to the "uttermost parts of the world."
Several of our International Students natural parents have decided to attend church in their own country because of the love that they see given to their children by a Christian family here! What an opportunity for outreach!  These young people truly do take the Good News of Jesus back to their own countries.
We have a number of students that will join our International Student Program for the 2017-18 school year. We need Christian families to host these International students. We expect to have girls and boys in grades 9-10 to place. 
The International Host Family will receive $900-$1100/month for the school year for food,  lodging and transportation.  The agencies also provide tutoring the first year, an academic coordinator, and a program coordinator to assist you to keep students on track.
Make your home a mission field and share the Good News with an International Student! Students arrive the end of December. They fly home at the end of the school year.
Call Susan Dial at 919-573-7900 ext. 7929 or email her at sdial@nrcaknights.com, if you are interested in being an International Host Home for next year.  We will have someone call you to explain the program. Contact us today!

The Great American Eclipse drew hundreds of middle and high school students to the NRCA soccer and football fields on Monday, August 21, for a solar eclipse viewing party. 

The NRCA Science Department orchestrated the event and provided students and faculty with special eclipse glasses to prevent eye damage. “We bought 950 pairs of glasses in June for the middle and high school students, and then 600 in August for elementary students,” said Cindy McInnis, head of the high school Science Department.

Elementary students were given their glasses and dismissed early so they could safely enjoy the eclipse at home with their families. Middle and high school students watched the eclipse during seventh period and saw it reach its maximum of 94 percent at 2:44.

This is the first time NRCA has hosted such an event. “A solar eclipse happens every year or two, but one has not gone completely across the continental United States like this in a really long time, which is why this event has been so celebrated,” said Suzanne Lyczkowski, AP Psychology teacher and Yearbook adviser at NRCA.

The eclipse was a unique experience for students and teachers. “I loved the whole experience of viewing the once-in-a-lifetime eclipse of 2017 and was glad I got to share it with my friends,” freshman Emily McAteer said.

The next total eclipse to cross the United States is in the spring of 2024.
