    We just love this school. My husband and I put our son in this school after having a bad experience at another school. Our son reading skill has improved so much. He now reads at his level. He is safe we love the discipline. Kids are to show respect to one another and to the adults. The education is even better they start at begin of the books and work threw them. No jumping around depending on test scores like public schools. Worth every penny that we have paid. We will miss this school when we move!!

    As a former teacher and current parent I could not be more pleased with the changes and tremendous improvements I have seen over the past several years at NCA. My children are receiving a truly excellent education and I have no doubt they will be more than prepared for college. They are challenged academically and intellectually and they have been taught the importance of honoring Christ in all they do. I am most impressed with the quality of the teaching faculty. Certainly the facilities are not the best; however it appears that the Board is working to begin a campaign to relocate the school in the near future.

    As far as not treating minorities fairly we are more minority than not and comments made by disgruntled parents who are no longer associated with this school should not be considered revelant. Everyone and every child at this school is treated fairly and equally.

    I have two children in this school. One is a senior this year and he has been in this school since k-4. When I drop my children off at school I know they are safe. All the teachers are watching out for all the children all the time. Bullying is never tolerated. If a problem occurs it as soon as it has been brought to the attention of the staff it is handled and is never an issue again. My senior is taking dual credit classes at a much cheaper rate than if he were taking them in college. At the rate he is going he will be a jr in college by the time he graduates. I highly recommend this school to any and everyone who wants a high level of education but a safe environment for their children. I look forward to another seven years with the second child who has also been here since k-4 and is a fifth grader this year.

    I love Northeast Christian Academy! I am in my 11th year here as a teacher as well as a parent. All three of our children call NECA "home". Our oldest daughter graduated from here and our other two will soon follow in her footsteps. I am so blessed to work in a Christian environment. I would only recommend this school to parents who are truly interested in a safe secure and competent environment. Northeast Christian Academy has been very good to our family and good for our family. The staff and teachers are amazing and caring.

    A great choice for a private Christian education with a balance of academics Christian service and fellowship. A real plus as the school now has Special Education for special needs children of all backgrounds colors and ages. I saw no preferential treatment in a recent tour.

    There's one thing among many that deeply disturb me about this school. First the strict discipline is uncalled for. It amazed me how the teachers could speak and treat these kids. Secondly how can a school have teachers there teaching your children that themselves have not been to school for a degree. That's right they( some) have never been to college nor teached before. Makes you wonder what kind of education your paying for

    I graduated in 1981 from NECA. If I lived in El Paso I would send my children here. I have stayed in touch w staff and old students and the school is still going in the direction in which god pre-ordained. The life concepts precepts character and Godly molding that was poured into me at my young age has helped mold me into the man i am today. im so thankful for NECA . Dan Nicholas

    I'm not a parent...I'm an alumni! I would go to NECA all over again if I could. My parents sacrificed pretty much all they had to send my sister & I there. It turned out to be one of the most memorable moments of our lives. We had dedicated teachers a high quality education many extra curricular activities to keep us busy & involved a safe & disciplined environment and so much more. If & when I have children Northeast Christian Academy will be my first choice! I pray God will bless them and bring them much success.
