www icon logoWelcome to the Nelson Christian Academy website!

I am delighted to know that you are considering our school for the education of your children. Christian Education is not a set of values, it’s a lifestyle. Nelson Christian Academy is a state-integrated, full primary school (Years 1-8) with a distinctive Christian Special Character.

The Bible says :”The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom “ - Proverbs 9:10. The foundation upon which an education system is based is, therefore, important.

It is my desire to see each student gain a personal relationship with Christ, to gain an understanding of their preciousness in Him and that they would outwork this in their relationships with others. Our school has high expectations of our students in academic, behaviour, sport and cultural pursuits. We have zero tolerance for bullying and believe that all students should be able to learn in a safe, nurturing environment.


If you can identify with these things, I would encourage you to come and visit, and experience the NCA way.
