$750,000 Challenge Grant: Great Hope for New Campus!

Anonymous donor supports NVCA by encouraging others to donate

North Valley Christian Academy recently received a three-year $750,000 challenge grant from an anonymous foundation. The grant will match dollar-for-dollar all donations from supporters who have not previously contributed to NVCA.

NVCA, an independent Christian school located in Anthem, recently kicked off their $5.5 million capital campaign, Steps of Faith, to raise funds for the acquisition of land to build a new school just south of Anthem on North 27th Drive. The school will encompass preschool through high school.

“We are incredibly excited and exceptionally blessed to have supporters who have stepped up in the early phase of our campaign to help us achieve our first milestone in purchasing the land for building our new campus in the next several years,” says Nate Kretzmann, North Valley Christian Academy’s executive director. “Having a major foundation that believes in our mission to offer a quality Christian education to more families in the North Valley is a major testament to our vision and a springboard to advancing this project forward. Their generosity of support makes possible a state-of-the art campus to provide an unparalleled Christian education experience. We are deeply grateful for our anonymous donor to invest in our school in a way that encourages others to deepen their faith and support of NVCA.”

NVCA is part of a large district that serves approximately 121,700 preschool-through-12th-grade students pic1_1stgrd
in over 2,000 Lutheran schools across the nation and three international schools in Asia. It is the only school in Arizona with accreditations from AdvancEd-North Central Association, National Lutheran School Association, and the Association of Christian Schools International. It is ranked number one in Ranking Arizona Magazine for private schools under 500 students.

“While we teach from a Biblical worldview, NVCA is open and welcomes students regardless of their religious affiliations,” Nate says.
