In Junior Varsity Public Forum Debate, three teams placed in the top six. Deana Arbelaez and Mary Glenn West placed fifth; Sarah Page and Felicia Shepherd placed fourth; and Gabe Benefeldt and Graham Lowder placed second. In Novice Public Forum Debate, Michael Houser and Nicole Tiu earned an honorable mention, and Isabella Garrison and Ben Gray placed fifth in the top six teams.

Thirteen teams participated in Junior Varsity Public Forum Debate, and 39 teams participated in Novice Public Forum Debate. The topic of debate was the benefit versus the harm of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

The team will travel to Sandy Hoke Early College this Saturday for their next tournament.

Samuel Sparrow (NRCA class of 2013) recently participated in the United Nations International Youth Orchestra. Samuel was featured as a soloist in the ensemble's performance which took place at the UN Headquarters on October 24th. Some may remember that following his graduation, Samuel was also honored as a participant and soloist for the inaugural season of the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America. Samuel is currently a performance student at the Manhattan School of Music and, among other achievements and honors, has been recently been added to the substitute musicians list for the NC symphony.

A UN produced video about the ensemble features Samuel among other participants, artists and the conductor can be found here:

NRCA's middle school volleyball A team won the Capital Area Middle School Conference tournament on October 16.  The Knights, led by Coach Jenny Buckley, finished the season 15-1.  

Due to the Knights’ outstanding performance during the regular season, the team earned a first round bye in the tournament.  In their first tournament game the Knights played East Wake Academy on Monday, October 13. The Knights won the first two sets 25-15 and 25-9 in order to move to the semifinal round on Tuesday.  

On Tuesday, October 14, the Knights took on Wake Christian Academy and again won  the first two sets, 25-21 and 25-19.  

On championship Thursday, the Knights faced St. David’s.  After their 25-14 win in the first set, the Knights would lose their only set of the entire tournament, 14-25.  During the tie-breaker set, the Knights pulled away and won 15-9.  

This year was a building year with all new players to the team except one returner, so our success was a pleasant surprise.  I attribute our success to solid teamwork and exceptional play from all of the team,” Coach Buckley said.

The contribution of several standouts also helped anchor the successful season. “Our go-to players this year were Natalie Young for serving and overall leadership, Megan Janok and Olivia Stowe for offense and Taylor Thomason for outstanding defensive performance and excellent communication and leadership.”

The recent shift to A and B team formats at the middle school level gave many of this year’s A team athletes the opportunity to gain in-game experience in the early middle school grades, developing basic skills they needed to advance through the NRCA volleyball program.

Through the years the Annual Fund Drive, Golf and Tennis Classic, and Boosterthon have met needs beyond the general budget.  Examples are things like a Fine Arts Center grand piano, greenhouse, charter bus, playground canopies, iPads/iPad carts, technology infrastructure, 70” HD Televisions, and SmartBoards as well as supporting the Next Step Capital Campaign that gave us the soccer park, three-story academic J-Building, and elementary gym. 

The 2014-2015 Annual Fund Drive, Golf and Tennis Classic, and Boosterthon fundraising endeavors will serve to provide an additional and much needed 40-passenger activity bus, additional iPad carts with iPads for Preschool through 3rd grade, 20th Anniversary festivities, and dollars for needs-based scholarships.  Please support these three important events.  These events will benefit our students and help keep tuition costs down.

  • Annual Fund Drive-Fall of 2014
  • Boosterthon Rock’n Town Live Fun Run-March 26, 2015
  • Golf and Tennis Classic-May 4, 2015
