At NuVision High School (NVHS), we believe that learning and spiritual growth go hand in hand. NVHS boarding school experience not only provides the foundation for each and every student to grow personally, but NVHS’s dedicated chaplaincy department staff work tirelessly to mentor, and guide students in their walks with God. Living, learning, and working with other students develop deep relational skills and opens the door for even greater service to the rest of humanity. We believe that because we are created in God’s image, we are called to the highest purpose of all: serving others “in the least of these.”
Growing in our Faith
NVHS’s goal is to invite all students into a lasting encounter with God by inspiring leadership, cultivating an atmosphere of respect, creating a lifestyle of service to others, and providing space for personal reflection.
Space for Reflection
Personal growth requires thoughtful reflection about the purpose and meaning of life on earth. Time for this reflective work is a central value at Nu Vision High School. The weekly Sabbath experience anchors this learning quality and features a relaxed schedule, worship and Bible study, and time for personal reflection. This time of concentrated, focused rest has value regardless of one’s personal belief in a Divine Being.
Reflection is not limited to one day each week. Students have space to reflect during thought-provoking discussions, engaging classroom discussions, and meaningful conversations with friends and staff members. This reflective value builds personal self-esteem, invites a growth mindset, and creates an environment that encourages curiosity and exploration.
Developing servant-leaders is essential to boarding school life. Leadership opportunities abound at NVHS; from classroom learning groups to student life, from organizing programs to presenting public presentations, from leading on the Basketball Court, to checking in on their peers, NVHS ‘s students transform from being participants to being leaders. Staff work closely with students to advance their leadership skills and often can be found mentoring and challenging them to reach their full leadership potential.
Some leadership opportunities that students have at NVHS are leading and planning activities for the student body. Students also lead out in the dorms as Residents’ Assistants (RA’s), and Boy’s or Girl’s Club Officers. Throughout the year, students lead out in church, Bible studies. Many graduates continue leading out in their communities and worlds after NVHS and are purposeful about creating positive change in the world.
Lifestyle of Service
We believe that God has given us the gift of serving others to defeat our selfish nature. In NVHS boarding environment, student connections provide daily opportunities for service as modeled by the staff. Many of NVHS students choose to take on mentor roles with younger students or get involved in the many community service programmes such as visiting disabled army veterans, helping in rebuilding a widows house each year, or handing out furnishings and books to poor kids around the school community. NVHS’s students learn to serve in our local communities and through ongoing community service projects.
