Presidents Email – November 29, 2018
Welcome to my November update:
Hello. This letter is the second in a series of five emails highlighting areas where New Saint Andrews College is growing and seeking your help as we do so. As part of our Build NSA fundraising effort, we look forward to transforming our Cadillac Jack’s building (as it currently appears in the photo above) into our north campus which will house the NSA Music Conservatory, classrooms, and events. This building is quite large and is multi-purpose in its uses. NSA purchased the building in August 2017 and is aspiring to transform it into the likeness of the architectural rendering shown below:
This building renovation is no small feat. There are many stages involved in converting this building from a nightclub into the second structure of NSA’s campus. The entire renovation project is estimated to cost $5 million, and we are entering phase one, which is predicted to cost $1.5 million. As you contemplate your end of the year giving, would you please consider donating to our Build a Campus fund? You may do so here: https://www.nsa.edu/buildnsa/. Your investment in NSA’s growth, whether grand or modest, is much appreciated and enables us to triple our facilities, provide a 680 seat music hall, and serve more students throughout the United States and the world.
In addition to reviewing the situation of New Saint Andrews College, we would like to recognize some of our educational partners who have been doing fundamental work in the area of classical, Christian education. This week, we would like to bring the work of Veritas Press, featuring its live online courses, to your attention. The goal of Veritas Scholars Academy (VSA) is to influence the next generation to wholly follow after Christ by instilling the truths of God’s Word into their hearts and minds. Veritas does this through the medium of online classical education.
Veritas states, “Partnering with NSA has been a wonderful experience and opportunity for Veritas Scholars Academy students. We’re grateful to NSA as an organization, and our students are grateful for the opportunity to earn a scholarship to study at NSA.”
This Veritas Scholarship is a full-tuition scholarship for four years as a joint endeavor between NSA and VSA and is reserved for the most distinguished Veritas scholars, recognizing both outstanding academic achievement and Christian character. Thank you for your interest in New Saint Andrews College and in Veritas Scholars Academy’s online classical, Christian education courses. By a financial gift to NSA, both institutions’ students are blessed, and the goal of graduating leaders who shape culture, living faithfully under the Lordship of Jesus Christ is advanced.
President of New Saint Andrews College
