Known, loved, and learning
Nueva Esperanza Leadership Academy (NELA) is a private, Christian school for grades K-8, where each student is known deeply, loved unconditionally, and learning holistically.
NELA offers a small, safe and loving environment designed for students to discover their passion as they grow personally and academically. Building on servant leadership principles, coupled with trauma informed practices, the school’s spiritual foundation fosters a culture in which students are given many opportunities to use their gifts to honor and serve their community and connect with the world around them.

- are surrounded by adults who believe they can succeed.
- have meaningful, sustainable relationships with caring adults.
- can articulate their future.

I am creative, smart, and capable of success.
I have dreams for the future, and I will climb to reach those goals and dreams every day.
All children are capable of success and worthy of love.
