Native American Christian Academy

Nearly sixty years ago, a Nazarene woman named Gertrude Jones had a vision: A Christian K-12 school for the Native American community. In 1963, the school was finished and named Sun Valley Indian School. In the recent past, it had to stop at the eighth grade level but in 2020, there was one senior graduate.


Nazarenes around the nation have donated money, time and labor for what s now called Native American Christian Academy. It is approved for 10% missions giving although it is not owned by the Church of the Nazarene. Now we in the Virginia District can help.


Coke products have a code on the bottle cap that is worth five cents for a participating school, public and private. I have started a drive to get coke lids for NACA.
