Faith in Education
At NDP, we believe the greatest service we can provide our students is to instill in them a love of learning and to provide them with the necessary skills to pursue God's plan for their lives. NDP offers a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum designed to prepare young men and women for the rigors of the collegiate world while recognizing that Christ is the common thread woven throughout our curriculum. Our students receive personalized education with our 17:1 student to faculty ratio. Our student to counselor ratio is 115:1, versus local public schools where it is as high as 900:1.
We offer learning programs that span the spectrum of learners from students who need extra time to master a skill to those who learn quickly and need to be challenged. We incorporate faith and reason in all of our classes. Using an eight-period block schedule, students graduate with 28.5 credits and 120 hours of Christian service to the community.
