Pomona, CA – Kimberly Gunderson, executive director of New Community Academy, was recently invited to speak to Time Warner Cable Local Edition Host Brad Pomerance about the school’s vision and growth. Her focus was on students discovering a new way to learn through the high school’s non-traditional academics. New Community Academy, a fully accredited private high school for students in grades 9-12, is honoring its fourth graduating class of seniors this week.
Gunderson understands that for some students traditional education is not a good fit. So in 2012, she launched her vision to create a high school where students can learn to love learning again. Gunderson notes, “We all know that class size can be a real barrier,” which is why the school caps each class at 10 students. The goal at New Community Academy is to develop students who are lifelong learners and are free to learn at their own pace while developing a mastery of each subject.
This faith-based school is offering students hope and unconditional love. Gunderson, backed by the teachers and staff, believes that people need hope and that New Community Academy offers students a place where they can hope and can find their worth. Gunderson says, “[Students] need to know that there’s something bigger than themselves.”
