At our church in Manchester, England, the first "learning center" was born. We opened our first “learning center” in Norwalk, California in September of 1990. In September of 1993, we were able to become a private Christian school because of the fine Christian men and women who gave themselves up to this ministry of Christian education. Our facilities cater to our students from preschool to high school. In addition, we offer correspondence courses for a college degree to any student who may be interested in furthering his / her Bible education.
In 1993, the first intake was over 50 students attending our Norwalk facility and 250 students attending the Independent Review. We also experience the joy of seeing "learning centers" open up in our other churches across the U.S. and overseas.
New Harvest Christian School adopted the program called "Accelerated Christian Education" and individualized study course. We praise God for the experienced blessings; in numeric, academic and spiritual terms. The school is indebted to the Christian men and women who dedicate themselves to this Christian education ministry. Their life imprint and teachings are immense.
Our athletics program involves the students who wish to grow in their athletic abilities. The coaching staff are helping to teach the players what they need to be successful. They teach them that it's always good to boost the confidence of their team members when they're having a bad game, to always have a good attitude on and off the court, and to know that whatever they do, they do it with all their might. Our Warriors leave everything on the court in every game and in everything they do, they do it ALL FOR GOD! And that is our slogan.
Our New Harvest Christian School students perform an annual Talent Show in which they express a message through the acting and dancing they show on stage. All of the hard work that each student puts into is hoping to minister to any of the unsaved families or friends who go and see them perform. Everyone is always doing a great job and it is fun to see it all come together.
The curriculum for the visual arts is the newest thing we have introduced to our community. This involves drawing, painting, film, audio, and movie making. The students learn all the essential tools and techniques necessary to draw, and all the skills required to operate on a machine. We build expertise in all the various programs which they use. It is always fun to see what the students can do while they are in college.
What our high school students have been doing for the past 6 years is attending the annual student ACE conference. Making lots of new friends, and participating in different events and activities, is a great experience for them. The conference takes place at Cal Baptist University in Riverside, CA. It takes place during the second week of March and our students spend a whole week staying at a nearby hotel. It is always fun to see the students return and share their experiences.
