"Napa Christian is an excellent school that I cannot recommend enough. I am an alumni that graduated from here just a few years ago. Throughout my elementary school, middle school, and high school years, the faculty and staff always made it very clear that they truly cared about me and my classmates. As a Napa Christian student, you are not just a statistic. You're family.
I occasionally revisit the campus from time to time and have witnessed firsthand its curriculum changes and the positive effects said changes are having on the campus. The principal of Napa Christian is a creative and inspirational visionary, and her positive influence can be seen all over the campus. The events the school puts on throughout the year are fresh and vibrant. In the modernized classrooms you will see young pupils learning about modern electronics and 3D printing. Outside you will see smiling young faces tending to the beautiful campus garden and the unexpected but welcome array of livestock, including chickens and goats. Napa Christian teaches kids how to work practically with their hands, which is more than can be said for many other schools.
Despite the hustle and bustle of these unique school days, the faculty and staff still never seem to fail to tend to each student's growth individually. There is little to no fear of "the principal's office" because the principal knows every student by name. Students can often be seen coming and going from the office not because they are in trouble, but because they need advice from a person they know they can trust or would like to suggest ways to improve the campus; from what I remember, the principal always welcomes their feedback. You can occasionally even spot an alumni simply dropping by to say hello to the principal or their favorite past teacher; even after graduation you still remain an important member of the Napa Christian family.
One valid criticism aimed at the school that still remains relevant is that in terms of college preparation, there is little in terms of "AP classes" or "College Prep" to give high school students a large head start in college. The Advanced College Prep Diploma that most students choose to obtain can result in some college classes being waived, but college credit is often not granted for waived classes. However, I personally have never heard of an alumni saying that this held them back in hindsight. Despite this slight shortcoming, I personally feel that Napa Christian gives their students every important tool needed to succeed not only in their classes but also in the real world. I personally feel that much of my current college success is due to the loving support I received at Napa Christian.
I cannot emphasize it enough; Napa Christian is family. If you are unsure, take a personal tour for yourself. I'm sure that a faculty member or student would be more than happy to show you around."

"All the sacrifices and challenges associated with sending my 3 boys to Napa Christian melted away and paled in comparison to the reward/fulfillment felt when I saw the results that can only come from a christian education that covers 360 degrees of a child’s growth. The real vested interest faculty has for each and every child shows and the kids know it's there. That's what allows learning to thrive. And much more than just academics. That's only part of the miracle you'll experience after choosing Napa Christian."
“My children have been attending Napa Christian for 9 years now. They have enjoyed the teachers, the atmosphere, the friends they’ve made, and all the different field trips. I have enjoyed the hard work the teachers have put into teaching my kids. My son has made it especially interesting for the teachers and all of them have worked patiently with him. He was so proud when he finally achieved straight A’s last year. It was 7 years of hard work put in by the Napa Christian Staff. We love it here and look forward to starting back up with the fall.”
