Message From Our Principals



Dear NBCA Families,

Welcome to the 2023/24 school year! 

We hope this letter finds you well as we eagerly anticipate the start of a brand new school year at NBCA. As summer draws to a close and the scent of fresh notebooks and dry-erase markers fills our halls, we're excited to welcome back our students, parents, and staff for another year of learning, growth, and wonderful experiences.

As we gear up for a year full of learning, we want to emphasize that we are a community committed to great academics and personal growth for each student. The team at NBCA is full of dedicated and hardworking teachers, support staff, instructional coaches, custodians, food service workers and more who all work towards achieving high academic and social standards. 

We are celebrating another year as a trusted public charter school, and what I love most about our school is being able to provide a unique service to our community. Every year, our families and staff become a united team with common goals and are dedicated to providing a safe community all while building character to prepare our students for life after NBCA.

We are excited to see you on Wednesday, August 16 for our Back-to-School Open House from 4:00-7:00 pm. You may drop in during that time to meet your child's teacher, drop off any supplies, and ask any questions you have. Tuesday, August 22 is our first day of school starting at 8:10 am.  Doors open at 8:00 for students to enter.  If you have any questions about the first day of school, please do not hesitate to contact the front office at (616)243-6221.

Thank you for entrusting your student with us. Education is a journey and we are honored to partner with a great community of families like you. 

In partnership with you,

Terry Larkin & Tanner Maten
