Isa 54:13 All the children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.


Thank you for considering Ancyra Christian Academy for your child’s education.
A.C.A is an independent school, and has been the vision of Anchor Church since 2014, we opened our doors in 2016.

  • Our school is about answering a call.
  • Ministering through education.
  • Being obedient to God’s Word.
  • Preparing children to have an impact on society.


Anchor derives from the Latin “ancora”, which is a transliteration of the Greek “Ancyra”


The first, logos, refers principally to:
The total inspired Word of God and to Jesus, who is the living Logos
“All your children shall be taught by the Lord, And great shall be the peace of your children.” (Isaiah 54:13)

A.C.E (Accelerated Christian Education)

Whether the student is a high-achiever, a moderate-paced learner, or a slow learner, the A.C.E. educational process proceeds at the exact level determined by the child’s ability. Individualization is a unique aspect of an A.C.E. CLASS that makes it possible for each student to master the subject matter before moving on. Such mastery is the foundation upon which all future learning is built. This type of educational system is beneficial for the students who excel at different rates of learning throughout a Christian school.

About Us

If you are looking for an affordable private school registered with the Education Department, then look no further.

ACA was birthed out of a love for God and a love and concern for the generations coming after us

Ancyra Christian Academy was established in, January 2016, in the beautiful village of Mtunzini on the North Coast of KwaZulu Natal. We have Grade RRR to Grade 8 and we are growing annually towards Grade 12. Children from Grade 2 and up do diagnostic tests in English, Afrikaans and Mathematics to determine the concepts not mastered. PACEs (workbooks) are then completed to fill the gaps for these key subjects.

We may be the new kid on the block, but the system is well established and has been used for the last thirty years in South Africa. We follow the Accelerated Christian Education programme (ACE). We have efficient and professional support from Accelerated Education Enterprises (AEE) based in Durban and they furnish us with all our curriculum to ensure we are compliant with the Department of Education’s requirements, which is currently CAPS. There are approximately 20 000 students currently doing the ACE curriculum in South Africa 

Vision and Mission of the School

The Vision of the School is: To teach children in excellence with an education and values grounded in the Word of God.
The Mission of the School is: To equip children to lead in all areas and on all levels of society faithful to the Word of God.

A Word

From Our Principal

“As the principal of Ancyra Christian Academy (ACA) I have forty years’ experience as an educator, my specialty is Further Education and Training (FET Gr. 10 – 12). I have been in government schools (primary and secondary schools). I have experience to assist learners for post matric studies as I lectured and worked in a support position as Academic Co-ordinator in the Faculty of Education, at the University of Zululand. I have been in Christian Education using the Accelerated Christian Education programme (ACE) for over a decade. My own children were in this system and currently my grandchildren are in the ACE programme. I know learners who have gone on to make a success academically, professionally and most importantly are an asset to society because of their love and dedication for the Lord Jesus.”
