Kindergarten uses a progress/mastery grading system and their report cards will be issued every nine weeks.
Academic grades (1st – 12th) are reported on a nine-week basis by a number grade. The grading scale is as follows:
F 69 and below
According to the grading scale the highest grade a student can receive on their report card will be 100. In elementary grades, graded work is sent home regularly and parents should be in the habit of checking backpacks each evening during homework time.
A parent/teacher conference may be scheduled at any time as requested by the parent, the teacher, or the administration. Students with a 4.0 GPA (straight A’s) will receive special recognition for “NCA Academic Excellence” at the annual school awards program. The last nine week report, SAT results, and honor certificates for the upcoming school year and a newsletter will be mailed home. Parents in Kindergarten through 6th grade are required to sign the report card the first 3 nine weeks and return it to the teacher by the following Wednesday. Report Cards will be held until all obligations are paid in full to the school. Dual Enrollment classes are on a 5.0 scale.
Students can order transcripts through the school office by completing a transcript request form or complete the form here. Five business days need to be allowed for the processing of transcripts. A $5 charge may be assigned in specific situations. Families will be notified of the charge before the transcript request is processed.
The A Beka Program is a comprehensive curriculum used in the elementary and secondary levels. When beneficial, an alternative curriculum is used to ensure high academic standards and strong preparation for college entrance exams.
