In 1987, Pellston Christian School merged with North Central Christian Academy to form Northern Michigan Christian Academy (NMCA.) NMCA resumed in the facility that North Central Christian School had been using, and still operates today at the same location. North Central Christian School began in 1977, while Pellston Christian School was formed in 1979. Through the merging of these two institutions, Northern Michigan Christian Academy has been faithfully educating children for the glory of Jesus Christ for over 40 years.
