    Isaac Newton is a fantastic school and I suggest every parent visit to school to learn more OR simply call the school to get details about what they are doing. It is amazing! I suggest to visit because when you arrive you will find the most polite well-mannered school children anywhere. The children are not unruly and crazy which is a clear sign to me that they enjoy being in school and learning. The families that send their children to INCA are from varied backgrounds and make the commitment and sacrifice because of the high-quality education the excellent teachers and the focus on educating children with excellent academics as well as sound Christian principles. It is a great school!

    Our family has been greatly blessed by the Isaac Newton school for the last ten years. The staff and administration show a true love for helping the children learn Biblical truths in addition to reading writing and arithmetic. They also demonstrate a Christ-like love and commitment to the students. The academics are outstanding and my children will be more than ready for high school. The level of education teaching and Biblical truths found at Isaac Newton are well worth the cost of tuition.

    We have had three children attend Isaac Newton Christian Academy for over six years and are extremely pleased with the level of education they are receiving along with the emphasis on integrating a Biblical worldview into every subject. We don't have to worry at all about the level of academics and are so pleased with the Biblical truths they are learning in every single subject. We feel blessed to have been able to send our children here.

    Our school is Isaac Newton Christian Academy. We are truly thankful for the influence of the teachers and staff at Isaac Newton upon our two children. The investment they make in the ongoing development of the students in their care is one for which we are grateful. At Isaac Newton Godly character and academic excellence are modeled and promoted on a daily basis. The teachers and staff at Isaac Newton are authentically passionate about the FULL development of a child - both academically AND spiritually. We have become true believers in the quality and value of the education available at Isaac Newton Christian Academy and are happy with our decision to send our children there.

    My son has attended Isaac Newton 4 years starting in 1st grade. We were unsure about the small school setting but have found it does an excellent job with challenging students. The curriculum for each grade has been very good to cover the basics before advancing in grade coursework. My son likes the school for it's Christ-centered environment. When asked he says "I like it that we pray before tests and lunch". The teachers have been very easy to talk to and are approachable. We have now moved to our 5th teacher at Isaac Newton and each one is my son's favorite. Sure the teachers are all talented educators - - the scores will show you that. But I see the difference at Isaac Newton because each teacher is sincerely caring and in their soft-spoken style can gain the respect of the students with being respectful of them. Each of my son's class have quickly becomes a team working hard together and having fun too.

    I guess scholastically this school is fine. My main issue is the bullying that happened to me at the school. I know this happens everywhere but it seems especially messed up that I faced some of the worst bullies here in my life when this school is supposed to be Christian. The teachers did very little to stop the bullying I basically losses of faith if Christians act worst than then what is the point?

    Isaac Newton Christian Academy used to be one of the primier Christian schools in the Cedar Rapids area. Unfortunatly this is no longer the case. The new administrator is condescending when confronted about his unfairness treatment of certain children and his staff. He does not have the facts to support his acusations. The school is losing enrollment because parents are unhappy with the administrator specific teachers and the overall education programs. This is supposed to be a Christian school but the administrator do not act in a Christian manner. That is unfortunate!

    Outstanding! Teachers administration & board that sincerely care about what matters most in helping develop a foundation. Plus INCA prepares students for high school & college better than anywhere else in Linn & surrounding counties.

    I am a past student and I loved Isaac Newton and all the teachers and students. The Christmas atmosphere was a positive one and the academics prepared me for life outside of school. I highly recommend this school!
