New Life Academy was founded in 1995 as a nondenominational Christian outreach to the children of Okinawa. No one could have foreseen the growth that lay ahead for this American school and an enrollment of students from America, Japan, Korea, India, Philippines, Africa, and Russia.
Education at New Life Academy is based on the principle that each child is a unique creation of God with individual abilities and talents that should be developed to their full potential. New Life Academy seeks to support the individual student's development with an environment that is conducive to learning, a qualified staff and a curriculum based on Christian values and high academic expectations. As each student grows spiritually, academically, socially and physically they should develop a strong sense of self-worth and respect for others within the multicultural community of Okinawa and the global community. Education is a cooperative effort on the part of the student, the parents, the school staff and the community to develop and exhibit the best in each other.
