Our story began gaining momentum over 15 years ago... Pastor Will Marotti and his wife, Ann, have had the desire and passion for a Christian school since the very beginning of New Life Church! As New Life Church has grown and expanded its outreach programs over the years, the passion for the school has only intensified!
In 2005, the school was officially adopted as part of the 20-Year Ministry Plan for New Life Church.
In 2006 Carver Preschool was launched! All the intensity and passion for excellence that New Life Church is known for has been poured into Carver Preschool! Carver Preschool is an academic-focused program that welcomes and loves each child for the individual they are!
The reality of Carver Academy became inevitable when God opened the way for New Life Church to purchase the 56-acre Mountain Ridge facility in Wallingford, CT in 2012.
In September 2013, Carver Academy began it's first year, offering Kindergarten and First Grade! What an amazing year it was! Consecutive grades have been added each year, thereby allowing the original kindergarten and first grade class to smoothly progress through 8th grade! In 2017, we built a brand new facility on this amazing campus that allows us the room to experience unlimited growth!
“Our goal is to provide the absolute best academic environment possible while instilling Christian values and world view,” said Pastor Will Marotti, senior pastor for New Life Church.
The school’s name is inspired by the famous and influential agricultural scientist, George Washington Carver, who was a great man of faith as well as a highly accomplished genius. There is not an American household that has not been positively impacted by the inventions and progressive thinking of George Washington Carver. Carver was born into very humble beginnings but was inspired by his devoted Christian mother who believed in the power of knowledge and personal ambition.
