All children deserve a quality education. But we must do more to make sure they get it. For more and more families, this goal is already becoming reality through the Opportunity Scholarship Program. This state-funded scholarship has given my own children a chance to attend Northwood Temple Academy.
Before enrolling at Northwood Temple Academy, my children struggled at their public school. My son struggled in reading/writing and my daughter was being bullied and unchallenged. They both needed individualized instruction, but their public school was unable to provide this mainly due to the large class sizes. The school culture was not inclusive for special needs children and my children did not feel accepted by their peers and the school administrators.
Now, my children love their school. They have grown academically and socially. They feel challenged by their schoolwork and supported by their teachers. They love and feel encouraged to learn.
We are where we are because of an opportunity. Without the Opportunity Scholarship, my children would not be able to attend Northwood Temple Academy and there are many other families like mine across the state. I want them to know about this program that I learned about through Parents for Educational Freedom in North Carolina. I want to tell these families that the Opportunity Scholarship can change their children’s lives for the better. My family is proof of the wonderful things that this specific opportunity can bring.

It has been 5 years since Richard Jackson-Lopez started in k-5. Now it’s Christmas in the 4th grade and it is time for us to move to Germany. Richard will miss NTA greatly. He has grown so much (not just his height) and much of that is due to the wonderful academic excellence and Christian teaching that NTA gives. We have been richly blessed to have spent the last 5 years with you. I pray NTA continues to be a premier k-12 education provider in Fayetteville which is the bedrock in raising up tommmows generation of Christian leaders. We will miss you ALL!

We decided to move our son here five years ago. It was ultimately the best decision we
could ever make for our child. The level of education and love is like no other. Thanks to
all the staff for their unending concern and well being for all these young people!

My daughter is a high school student at NTA. A critical component of high school
selection for us was college planning and preparation. We wanted to allow her the
opportunity to excel in high school academics and programs, while focusing on being
ready for the next chapter of her life. The high school department at NTA achieves
excellent in college preparation. This year’s graduating class has acceptances to the most
competitive universities and many with great scholarship amounts! Campbell University
awarded it’s highest scholarship to a NTA senior, two military academy appointments,
UNC Chapel Hill, UNC Wilmington, UNC Asheville, Western Carolina, Methodist,
University of Alabama and many many more. This information is available on the NTA
website and facebook page. Those acceptances prove that the coursework and teacher
involvement at NTA prepare the students to perform well academically and have all the
characteristics that admission representatives are looking for in the highly competitive
acceptance process. Test scores of NTA students far exceed to averages of Cumberland
County students, North Carolina students, and students nationally. The potential cost of
college for my daughter is something we are concerned about. That’s why we feel like
attendance at NTA is an investment. She will be ready to apply for colleges and the
coursework will prepare her to receive scholarships. If you are looking for a high school
program to prepare your child for college acceptance, NTA has the best programs! Their
college acceptance rates and test scores do not lie. After looking at many private schools
in town and comparing apples to apples in college preparation, there is no comparison to

We recently moved our son to Northwood Temple Academy from public school for the second half of 1st grade. We were really not happy with the Common Core Curriculum in public school and he seemed very stressed out and confused and really did not like going to school at all. We were hoping that moving him to NTA would help him, and now after just a few weeks we are amazed at the difference in our son. Not only is he reading better and completing all of his school work on time, but he loves going to school now and actually said he wished he could go on the weekend! What we were not expecting is the change in attitude at home. Now that he is happy at school and learning more he is actually back to his old happy self and helping out more around the house and getting along better with his little sister. He has been reading books to her and playing for hours, whereas before we switched him here he would come home from school and be angry and just want to be left alone. I cannot believe how happy he has been since the first day that he started at NTA and his grades have improved so much, this is more than we hoped for. I have been recommending NTA to all of my friends with young children. I just wished we would have started him here sooner!
