Change Lives With Us

Right now -- in the middle of this COVID-19 pandemic -- we’re midway through Phase 2 of a three-phase building campaign that began in 2008. Much prayer, hard work, expertise and volunteer time has gone into developing our future plans. But we’re putting that on pause.


As we navigate a new way of living and teaching during this pandemic, we are trusting in God to lead us. We believe God has big plans for our NCS community. And we believe His timing is perfect. For now, we have shifted many of our resources to support our families through the pandemic.


Help us make a difference. Your support now will impact a student’s life forever.

Why We’re Expanding

We’re at capacity

Nanaimo Christian School is becoming known in the community as an excellent option for students and families looking for alternatives. Wait lists are happening at most grade levels. Classes are full. Our growth is being slowed only by our ability to find spaces for more students.



Buildings are past due for replacement

Our grade 3-5 modular classroom building was built to last 20 years ... until 2012. We are now well beyond that. The cost of repairs continues to escalate as we patch up an old building past the end of its lifespan. Floor tiles are peeling, furnaces need to be replaced, and other signs of distress are also appearing.


There’s no other option for Christian education

NCS is the only Christian school in central Vancouver Island. Nanaimo isn’t a strong church-going population, but more families are seeking us out. Education is our way of drawing them into a safe and caring community, sharing about Jesus and helping them explore faith.


We want to be a light in the community

Expanding our facilities allows us to not only impact our students but also to draw people in from the community.Gym and classroom rentals bring more than 1,500 people through our doors each year. We believe that they will feel and see something different, and we hope that will lead them to explore it further.


“When we went to start Phase 2 and had financing questions. At the last minute, RBC stepped up and said they had a private school financing program. We had no idea. It was like God was clearly speaking. Every time NCS has come as a community in prayer, God has answered. Always. In every situation."

Donna Hais, Chair of NCS building committee
