In 1954 a dream was born. Nile Union Academy became the premiere Seventh-day Adventist boarding academy in the Middle East and North Africa. With new buildings and a barren 35 acres it began making dreams come true one young person at a time. Now 56 years later, operating at it’s capacity of 135 Egyptian and Sudanese students, NUA continues to make dreams come true.
