ACADEMICS OVERVIEW

New Braunfels Christian Academy is an accredited, private, college-preparatory, and interdenominational Christian school guided by the belief that God is the center and source of all wisdom, knowledge, and truth (John 17:17, II Corinthians 13:8), and the Bible is the inspired and only infallible authoritative Word of God which contains this truth (II Peter 2:20-21). We deliver a Christian education, promote and maintain high academic standards, and encourage students to achieve their highest potential.

We believe that knowledge is incomplete unless gained within the context of the truths taught by God in the books of the Bible. Thus, the Word of God permeates all areas of our curriculum, and we provide a complete education by addressing the religious, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical aspects of the child – promoting excellence in spirit, mind, and body. It is from this perspective that we provide formal instruction in the academic disciplines of English and language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, foreign language, fine arts, and physical education.

To ensure student progress and achievement, the Christian Academy promotes the close collaboration of parents and educators and communication between them. Faculty and parents work together to shape each student’s educational experience, design individualized expectations, and model enthusiasm for learning. We accomplish this in part through the school's web based parent portal, RenWeb.

Not only does our faculty exhibit mastery of the disciplines, but they also possess the gifts of communicating with and inspiring young people. Curiosity, creativity, and learning are nurtured by maintaining small classes (Maximum is 20 students per class.) and by offering enrichment opportunities including extracurricular activities and community service. Our proven approach is evidenced by the achievement of our students.
