New Covenant Academy Anticipates Expansion

Mansfield-based private school prepares for addition after grant approval

 

by Amiee Jones - September 13, 2016

In regards to the typical schooling model, New Covenant Academy is breaking the mold. Located on Extension Street in Mansfield, this small private school has been impacting lives for decades.

Headmaster Bruce Reagan attributes the school’s uniqueness to their small class sizes, invested faculty, and Christian faith. The average student to teacher ratio is 10:1, with a maximum of 18 students per classroom. In this atmosphere, students are able to receive individual attention and training. Christian principles are integrated in to every part of the education process, stimulating the students mentally and spiritually. When asked about his primary goal for the students, Bruce articulated his desire for not only their academic security, but also the knowledge of God’s purpose for their lives.

In addition to the in-class course load, New Covenant offers students an online program. The online classes provide some of the more advanced or specific studies, such as, college prep and foreign languages. This academic set up must be working! The private academy’s students test in the 80th percentile in their performance testing, and 90 percent of NCA students go on to college.

Headmaster Reagan accredits the school’s impact and success to sincere and loyal faculty, as well as, New Covenant’s emphasis on family involvement. The school’s calendar of events is evidence that family is a high priority to the members of New Covenant Academy. Families are brought together to build connection and camaraderie with picnics, evenings of prayer, banquets, etc. Along with prioritizing the family relationship, New Covenant depends on family volunteering. Parents help with concessions at sporting events, fundraising functions, cafeteria duty, in-class assistance, and much more. Clearly, the school’s cause is one that many believe in, and are willing to invest their time toward.

The administration strives to keep a congenial relationship with the Mansfield community. “We try to be a part of the community,” says Bruce Reagan. Two of the most popular events, that those nearby can look forward to, are the fresh peach cobblers sold at local fairs, and New Covenant’s annual rummage sale.

With all of this activity and excitement surrounding NCA, it’s no wonder that the small school has big plans ahead! New Covenant looks forward to a large addition and renovation project in the part of the building that is now the gymnasium. The gym has been an all-purpose room for many years, and will soon be turned in to a more definitive space. The project will also include two levels of additional classrooms. Bruce Reagan hopes to break ground with the project in the summer of 2017, saying happily, “we’ve outgrown our building.”
