Is this new school going to be owned by Eastside Baptist Church, or will it be independent like Marion Christian Academy was? Is the school going to be a direct replacement of Marion Christian Academy, which is closing, or completely separate?

Owned and operated by Eastside, this will not be a direct replacement.

Was MCA doing ok on Ashworth Road until the proposed purchase on 221 South? I hate to see it close, we were interested in choosing it in a couple of years.

Yes, the debt from the 221 campus forced them to close, is my understanding. I am sad to see it go as well.

A private school(that you pay for) that allows prayer,Jesus, and/or religion into the classes due to NO sate taxpayer funding.

Private religious schools under should under no circumstances receive public funds! If you fund a Christian school you should have to fund a Muslim school. Think about it!

That's exactly right and that's why MCA went out of business.The parent wouldn't pay the monthly payments or couldn't and the school couldn't pay their teachers,who by the way were not lisenced teachers.All classes about a year to a year and a half behind public school.

I personally like christian based education but only if it is quality education.

Be sure to check accreditation for these schools also. Some may not be accredited for the very reasons you stated. "Quality" education is fine but if colleges are looking over applications due to accreditation lapses you really aren't helping your kids. Might as well home school if you are keeping them in a bubble anyway.

It is a misspelling of Christian. You see the R is right next to the T on the keyboard and sometimes people hit the wrong key while typing. Oddly enough, it's called a typographical error and most people make one at some point in their life. I'm happy that I could clear this up for you.

We NEED a voucher system so that parents have a choice on how THEIR children are educated. At one time the public education system was commendable. However, now far removed government bureaucracy has smothered creativity in the classroom. Political correctness and the latest California theory on what and how to teach is mandated by some yahoo in Washington and Raleigh. Glad there is another choice. Too bad everyone does not have the resources to have a choice.

Voucher systems are not an option! If you want to send your kid to a Christian school so they can educate them to be narrrow minded adults that is you option. But don't use my tax money tO do it!

I have a feeling the Nebo Christian school will be nothing like New Manna.You really have to be careful though I had the misfortune of attending New Manna because my parents thought it'd be good.I wasn't a trouble maker or anything like that don't know what they were thinking.Anyway my worst day in public school was nothing compared to New Manna.If you came from public school you were ostracized like you had the plaque.Kids I didn't know from Adam asking me if I was a virgin(I was but it was none of their business)I heard the term ''thats wicked'' more times than I can count.Any music but certain kinds of Gospel was wicked.Played music backwards telling you there were hidden messages,Halloween was the devil....geeze I could go on and on.....Like I said I don't feel like Nebo Christian will be like that just be careful how you treat people.Making someone feel like they are scum isn't going to lead them to Christ.

Freedom, I get your point. Don't take my tax dollars and force my children into government schools to indoctrinate them to be servants of the government. College is the worst offender. Most all are strait down the road left wing. What really amazes me is that the country is as politically divided as it is. Given that the vast majority of people have been spoon fed left wing "theology" by our education system, its amazing we are not all socialists. Thank God a lot of people are open minded free thinkers, commonly known as conservatives. If you can , send your children to Nebo Christian, or any other place you can choose.

You are so misguided. These Christian schools are the centers of indoctrination! Teach them bible fantasy! About how to view the world narrow mindedly. About how to look down on other people and religions and about how to go kill for "Jesus". People are spoon fed this right winged religious crap! The world would be so much better off without folks who are narrow minded hypocrites! Teach them to be close minded! Keep them ignorant!

Well Duh, you missed the whole point. You can be criminally prosecuted (by the government) and go to jail for not sending your children to school. If you don't believe me go check at the courthouse. So, most people send their children to a government school that your and my tax dollars pay for. I'm for a voucher system that lets me make the decision where my children go. Religious or secular. it should be MY choice. I have known many people educated in Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, and even Muslim schools that are intelligent open minded folks. You put every Christian school in the same "bag". Is your real issue with Christians in general?

I graduated from New Manna Christian School. I don't know how "bad" or "good" it is compared to public school because I only attended public school in elementary school, but a lot of stuff you said is unfortunately true. I would not say it was a bad school (and for most of those years I enjoyed going there and learned a lot), but I felt it was too closely connected to the church. We would spend some days cleaning and decorating for church events instead of doing school work. One thing I didn't like about it was its lack of diversity in opinions and class choices. I didn't have a bad experience there, but I felt like I missed out on a lot of opportunities I would have had if I went to a public school. I also didn't like the attitude of a few of the "popular" students and teachers there. I didn't get a lot of help with preparing to go to college, either.

I do hope that NCA is different in these aspects. I don't think I would send my children to a Christian school, though. In my opinion, it's the parents' and church's job to teach the children about God and Christianity. They shouldn't rely on the Christian school to teach them what to believe. Also, if we Christians are supposed to "Go out into the world and preach the gospel", why do we hide our kids from "the world" and keep them from witnessing to the lost?

Just my personal opinion.
