About Us

Changing lives – one student at a time.

Thank you for your interest in Neuse Christian Academy. We know that making the decision concerning which school will be the best fit for your child is extremely important. Schools can change lives, and you want your child to be in a Christian environment where they will be encouraged and inspired to develop their mind, body, and spirit. NCA has been that kind of place since 1972.

We hope this information will help answer some of your questions about our outstanding academics, the course offerings, and the variety of extracurricular activities at Neuse Christian. It is our desire to give you a clear picture of NCA’s strong commitment to preparing students for college and for life.

But what truly distinguishes NCA from other private schools in the Wake County area cannot be found in the descriptions of our curriculum or our extracurricular programs. We have a devoted, nurturing faculty that is dedicated to the development of well-rounded students in a Christian environment in which our students flourish.

Neuse Christian Academy is a special place. We invite you come and take a tour to see what NCA is all about.

Our Educational Philosophy

NCA was founded to provide high academic standards in a Christ-centered environment. We encourage students to synthesize and evaluate everything they encounter through a biblical lens, looking to the Word of God as our focal point and God Himself as the ultimate basis for truth.

We strive to assist parents in fulfilling their God-given responsibility to educate their children, anticipating close cooperation with parents in every phase of their child’s development.

We recognize that every child possesses distinct innate abilities as a unique creation of God; therefore, we seek to encourage each student to do his or her best. NCA desires for each student to learn more than simply how to make a living, but, more importantly, how to live. Each student will be challenged to live a life that glorifies God in all areas.

Nondiscriminatory Policy

Neuse Christian Academy does not discriminate on the basis of any race, color, national and ethic origin in any of its admissions, rights, programs, activities, educational policies, scholarship programs and other school-administered programs.
