Northwest Christian Academy was incorporated as an independent Christian school April 7, 1998. NCA was formerly Nazarene Christian School which was founded in 1980 in the Olympia First Church of the Nazarene on 22nd Street. It started as a preschool/day care and added grades each year until reaching the fifth grade level. The school moved to Israel Road in 1989 where it served children from age two and one-half years to the fifth grade level. Sixth grade was added in 1996. In April of 1998, the school and day care moved to the present campus on Park Center Avenue. Seventh and eighth grades began in September of 1998. In January of 2000, Northwest Christian High School joined NCA making eudcation available to preschool age children through twelfth grade. As the school has continued to grow, renovation of an existing wing now houses NCA’s Junior High department. In 2007, a second full size gymnasium with a stage was completed for the Elementary and Junior high grades
In 2018, in a move to strengthen the unity between the three schools on our campus we officially became Northwest Christian Schools of Lacey (NCS). The name of our K-8th school, Community Christian Academy, was changed to Northwest Christian Academy. Our Community Christian Academy Preschool and Daycare was changed to Northwest Christian Preschool and Daycare (NCP).
