At New Life Christian School, we hold to the scriptural position that teaching is not a vocation but a gift. The challenge to encourage each of the students under our tutelage to realize their best in the varied academic disciplines needs to go beyond mere passion. We’ve been privileged to witness more than three decades of peerless faculty dedication. From our conception, a preeminent concern of New Life Christian School has been to not disallow admittance purely on financial grounds. This has meant that our unrealistically low tuition is not enough for commensurate monetary compensation for our staff. Demonstrating Christ’s love to children through teaching is the fuel that drives the engine for all on staff at New Life Christian School. Every full-time staff member is fully credentialed, including masters and doctorate degrees when appropriate. Despite the lack of financial remuneration, many of our staff have served at New Life for their entire adult lives, exemplifying their faithfulness in service to Jesus, and His faithfulness in keeping this work alive.
In addition to the standards set forth by the New York State Board of Regents New Life Christian School requires courses in Christian character development, communicative skills, problem solving, practical life skills, and historic and contemporary Christian philosophy.
