NAPS accreditation will take you farther


By accrediting our school, NAPS has assisted students complete their academic goal of exiting high school as a college ready freshmen. Additionally, NAPS has assisted us in framing our school to prepare students in the core academic skills required to move to the next grade level and Biblical knowledge. Students that have transferred to other schools were able to meet and, or exceed the academic standards at the new school. Our high school graduates have gone on to excel in college, with several making the dean's list each semester. This could not have happened without holding the accreditation stamp received from NAPS which help parents to feel confident about their school choice.
