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
58-acre Mountain Ridge facility in Wallingford, CT in 2012. Now the beautiful Meriden campus - 7 1/2-acre property
and 13,000 square foot building - is dedicated solely for Carver Preschool and Carver Academy!
The earnest preparations to open the Academy began at that time. The Preschool program was expanded to include
a structured academic program for 4-year olds in 2012.
September 2013, Carver Academy began it's first year, offering Kindergarten and First Grade! What an amazing year it was!
Consecutive grades will be added each year, thereby allowing originating first grade class to smoothly progress through 8th grade!
Our eyes are on the potential that the Academy will offer high school classes as well down the road - complete with sports, fine arts, chemistry labs, etc! But let's take it one building block at a time!
“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.
