Admissions

ADMISSIONS OVERVIEW 

Thank you for your interest in New Braunfels Christian Academy.  NBCA is unwavering in its pursuit to prepare students for not only the next level in their education, but in their Christian lives. We are intentional in working with our families to help prepare the next generation of Christian leaders for our world.

ADMISSION STATEMENT 

New Braunfels Christian Academy is a religious institution providing an education in a distinctly Christian environment and admission into NBCA is open to parents/guardians interested in securing a Christian education for students from kindergarten through grade 12. Our direction is one of discipleship; and as such, we are here primarily to serve members of the Christian community. NBCA admits students of any race, color, nationality, gender and ethnic origins to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. NBCA does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, gender, or ethnic origin in administration policies, scholarship, athletics, and other school-administered programs. NBCA reserves the right to select students on the basis of academic performance, religious commitment, lifestyle choices, and personal qualifications including a willingness to cooperate with NBCA administration and to abide by its policies. In addition, a student may not be extended an invitation for admission if the parents’/guardians’ lifestyle choices are in direct conflict with biblical standards. We believe that our biblical role is to work in conjunction with the home to mold students to be Christ-like by instilling a biblical worldview and teaching biblical principles throughout the instructional curriculum and extra-curricular activities. On those occasions in which the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home is counter to or in opposition to the biblical lifestyle, the school reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant or to discontinue enrollment of a student. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, living in, condoning, or supporting sexual immorality; homosexual acts of sexual orientation; promoting such practices; or otherwise the inability to support the moral principles of the school. (Leviticus 20:13a, Romans 1:27, Matthew 19:4-6).
