Welcome to New Beginnings Christian Academy Website

What Makes Us Different from Other Private Schools?
1. Christian Environment for grades K-12.
2. Smaller teacher to student ratios (no more than 15 students to 1 teacher).
3. We have been accredited since 1996.
4. All of our teachers are certified by FCPS – they love our students  – and they love teaching here.
5. We believe that while  ALL students can learn – some learn differently.
6. We accept most major scholarship programs.
7. We use SMART boards and tables in every classroom and have a laptop 
ratio of approximately one laptop for every two students.
8. We give diagnostic testing to make sure every new student is getting the
help where he or she needs it.
9. We are located on a beautiful 7 acre property in an area with very little traffic; yet, we are less than a minute away from I-10 and I-295 (directly
across the street from the Flea Market along I-10 at Lane Avenue.)
