New Castle Christian Academy

New Castle Christian Academy is an interdenominational Christian school.
Therefore, the school will introduce students to the basic concepts of faith that are found in Christianity and will avoid teaching specific denominational doctrines.
It is the philosophy of the New Castle Christian Academy that an excellent academic program in a Christian atmosphere should be available to the children of our community during their formative years.
It is our purpose to bridge the relationship between the educational experience and the dynamics of the Christian life and develop Christian leaders who will love and serve in thought, word, and deed, and impact the world around them.
NCCA supports the students` individual churches.  Training Christian leaders is one of the key goals of NCCA. Through character building, leadership opportunities and daily classroom activities, we seek to instill in our students the desire to live and serve in Christ`s name now and in the future.
