"...the assurance that our children are learning in an environment that supports the same Christian values and Biblical world view that our family holds. Knowing that our children are surrounded by teachers and staff who have a high professional and moral characting. To see our children encouraged to grow in their relationship with the Lord, by keeping HIM in the center of ALL that they do." -Joe & Amy Pohlman | NHCA family, 5 years
"Why did we choose New Hope Christian Academy? Our journey with New Hope started in 1993 when our oldest son, Caleb, was 18 months old. We were in search of a day care for him and New Hope was just opening their doors. What we found was a caring and Christ-centered environment with staff that not only had a love for Christ, but a love for our son. It was not a difficult decision to keep him at New Hope when it was time for him to start kindergarten. Caleb attended New Hope up through the 6th grade. He is now a graduate of Wilmington College and is employed with Berger Health Systems as an Athletic Trainer. He is also working towards his goal of becoming a Physician's Assistant. His little brother Corbin started the same path at New Hope when he was 18 months old. Corbin is now an Alumnus of New Hope (Class of 2018). It is amazing to see the many great things that God is doing at NHCA. Our faculty, staff and administrator are passionate about their calling. We believe our sons have flourished because of the nurturing and encouraging environment that is in each and every classroom at New Hope. First and foremost though, we believe the Christian values that are so important to us are being fostered and reinforced in our school daily. We are thrilled that our students are thriving academically but also that they are building a stronger relationship with Christ. We are Statesmen!" -Larry & Melissa Betz | NHCA family, 25 years
