Both parents and student applicants must be present at the interview.
Student applicants may be required to take aptitude, achievement and/or diagnostic tests before admission to NCA. NCA Administration may contact student's previous teacher/administrator to inquire about academic performance and social behavior.

Following notification of acceptance, the new family has three days to complete the Online Enrollment (accessed through ParentsWeb) process. All of the required fees as set forth in the Tuition and Fee Schedules and any supplemental forms including a current immunization certificate, must be received for a student to be considered enrolled.
A waiting pool is established for qualified students after all openings are filled.
Students must register for enrollment for each school year, re-enrollment privileges are not guaranteed. Enrollment at NCA is a privilege, not a right.
