Kindergarten at NCA

Critical thinking and problem solving skills are honed on a daily basis.

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past than education than money than circumstances than failures than successes than what other people think or says or do. . . . . . We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude…I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you…we are in charge of our attitudes.”

― Charles Swindoll.
