New Covenant Academy, a K-12 Christian school comprised of some 180 students, announced earlier this month that all of its 17 graduating seniors were admitted to universities.
Some of the universities they were admitted to include Yale University, Cornell University, Carnegie Mellon University, Washington University in St. Louis, UCLA, UC Berkeley, University of Southern California, UC San Diego, UC Irvine, and Penn State, among others.
“The class of 2016 at NCA worked hard to achieve fantastic college results,” said Dr. Jason Song, the principal and founder of NCA. “Given that more students in the U.S. applied to post-secondary institutions this year than ever before, the achievement of our seniors is that much more significant. We are delighted that the hard work by these students — and their teachers and parents — were validated by college admission results.”
New Covenant Academy was founded in 1999, and is WASC accredited and offers Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs for its high school students. NCA is also a member of the Association of Christian Schools International, and California Association of Private School Organizations.
