Director’s Note: Our Best Year Yet!

by Kimberly Gunderson | Oct 13, 2017

October greetings! It’s hard to believe that we are now in our 9th week of school. I always say, “this is our best year yet,” and now is no different. . . “This is our best year yet!”

As you may know, five New Community Academy students proudly received their diplomas during our graduation ceremony this past June. They have matured and blossomed into wonderful young adults whom we are proud to call alumni. Of this graduating class, Emma is pursuing what God has in store for her future in photojournalism and missions. Michael is making plans to join the military. Levi now attends Mt. Sac Community College in the EMT program and is working toward his Fire Certification. MaryJane also attends Mt. Sac, majoring in Biology, hoping to work in the field of Behavioral Neuroscience. Vincent currently serves at Purpose Church as an intern under Adrian Pichay, our Junior High pastor.

Isn’t it exciting to see the rich harvest your generous gifts have brought to fruition? NCA is making a difference in these students’ lives, and you have been a significant investor in this ministry. Thank you for your faithfulness, concern, prayers, and support.

The most profound impact of your generosity is this: two of those graduates listed above came to our school having never made a decision to follow Christ. They now count themselves among those who will follow and serve Him. We are grateful to God and to you!

We are now entering our greatest annual opportunity for financial sustainability. Once again, NCA is blessed to receive a Matching Grant from a generous donor. This year our goal has been set for $20,000! Please consider a financial contribution of any size that will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, enabling the school to remain academic, accessible, and affordable for all students. Help us continue to offer a high quality Christian education at a fraction of the cost of most private schools. For your convenience, you can donate directly at our PushPay giving site or by visiting the Support page on our website.

Thank you for sharing in this mission. As our graduates will tell you, New Community Academy is a life-changing school, where this model of education makes a difference – to create an effective intentionally small, intentionally Christian learning environment for students, where they can feel loved, supported, and successful.

We are blessed beyond what we can think, ask, or imagine!
