There is so much to get involved in on campus! Especially since it's a small school. There is different clubs you can run for. The hardest one to get into is the Associated Student Body because you have to make a speech in front of the whole school on election day and the whole school votes who they want as officers for the upcoming school year. There is National Honor society, the requirements are to have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and be involved in other things outside of school. Class officers, you plan different activities to do with the class, the class votes for the people they want as officers. There is also international club where you eat, talk, and have fun. Anyone can join that one! The last one is running club, if you like to run and aren't involved in a sport join running club! Each club has some form of commitment especially if you're an officer. The Associated Student Body officers have to put in the most time and effort because they are the ones who plan events for the whole school like banquets, spirit weeks, etc. There is also four different varsity sports you can join, such as volleyball, flag football, soccer, and baseball/softball. They also have intramural sports where anyone can participate; the teams are composed of students from the school. The school has a choir, select, choir, praise band, band, and strings club. If you are musically talented this school is for you! Any of the things I mentioned can be fun it just depends on what you think is fun and what you make of it. The administration supports all of these different clubs and activities as long as they are appropriate.

Admission to Newbury Park Adventist Academy is not difficult as long as you have not been expelled from the school you attended before applying to Newbury. The school does not offer any AP classes, it only offers honors Alg. 1 and Advanced Alg, 2. If you took Alg, 1 or Geometry in middle school you will be required to take a placement test to determine if you're ready to be placed in a more advanced math class. The school is big on making the cost of attendance affordable so if you let them know what your parents income is they will work in helping you find the best out of pocket cost as possible. If you had good grades and were involved in school you could qualify for the worthy student aid program, they offer jobs on campus so you can find a teacher to work for and get paid for it, and if you're lucky someone can sponsor you and pay for all of your tuition!

The facility is pretty old. They have been updating some things of the facility such as windows, doors, lockers, etc. Overall the facility is OK, it's not the best but it is manageable. They need more updated computers and printers that actually work because they always have to fix the printers we have. They definitely need guidance counselors!! They have students who offer tutoring and the teachers stay after school for an hour to help students with homework they did not understand. They do not have college prep classes but they do offer SAT prep courses you can take with a program they hired. The school has something called PTO which stands for Parent Teacher Organization. Teachers and Parents work together to plan special events for the school. The school can improve on the resources and facilities they have.
