What do I do if my child is absent or needs to be absent?  

A detailed list of excused and unexcused absences is in the NCA Family Handbook. The student's parent or legal guardian should make a call to the school or give advance written notification to the school when a student will be absent for excused reasons. Validated Absences: Brief illness, appointments, and family business are considered absences for purposes of meeting attendance policy requirements. Non-medical absences must be documented by written notes from parents. All notes can be sent to school with the student on the first day returning to school or scanned and emailed.

What is the Naples Classical School Supply Program?

It saves parents time and money along with ensuring consistency in the required items.

Naples Classical Academy parents and guardians can avoid the hassle of school supply shopping and ensure that NCA teachers and students have an efficient and uniform supply of necessary items for the classroom. The traditional way of searching for specific school supplies on each teacher’s list takes time and items can be hard to find. It is estimated that purchasing these items separately averages around $75.00.  

Our School Supply Program requests a donation of $50.00 per child to cover all consumable supplies required for the school year. This includes tissues, sanitizer, markers, crayons, paper, pencils, composition notebooks, folders, planners, etc. Most families will make this contribution during the registration process. If you have not contributed, you can do that now. Click Here to make your donation. 

If all parents contribute to this program, we can continue it every year, and ensure that the students have the supplies that they need without the need for parents or staff to shop for supplies.

Thank you for your generous contributions!
