North Valley Christian Academy announced plans for its ‘topping out ceremony’, scheduled for February 23 at 11:00 a.m. School leaders, Board of Trustee members, key donors, and construction personnel will meet on site February 23 to celebrate this important milestone in the construction of NVCA’s new 72,000 square foot campus located at 33655 N. 27th Drive, Phoenix. The event is planned to commemorate the half way point in completion of the campus for opening fall 2017.

The 21st Century designed campus, moving from Anthem to Tramonto, will provide a Christ-centered liberal arts education for 600+ students, grades Pre-K through 12. With the addition of high school, the new school will offer an expanded curriculum in a blended, project based learning environment. Enabled with a strong technology platform, students will have increased flexibility in learning while benefiting from a full range of athletic programs, performing arts, and STEAM classes.

The innovative features of the campus include flexible and multi-sensory study areas. Overlooking the natural desert, the facility offers multiple outdoor learning opportunities that interface and connect to the natural environment. The integration of a robust technology platform supports flexible learning in a collaborative, visual and experiential environment.

Nate Kretzmann said: “We are blessed and excited to see this remarkable new campus reach this important milestone. As the project moves towards a July completion, we are excited to be able to offer students a strong biblical-based academic education as well as a foundational education that develops strong social skills and emotional intelligence of our students.” Kretzmann further stated that this “milestone celebration brings a special joy to fulfilling our mission of expanding the opportunity for more students to gain an education that can help define and reinforce a deep sense of God-given value, purpose and meaning.”
