Nicaragua Christian Academy Academic Excellence With A Christian Foundation

NCA Nejapa

Campus

Governance

NCA Nejapa is part of the Association of Nicaragua Christian Academy, a network of three schools founded on the same founding mission of Academic Excellence with a Christian Foundation.  With its beginnings in 1991, NCA International was the founding school of this association, and is unique in its context of a fully English-language education and a high percentage of international and missionary families.  NCA Nejapa (founded in 2005) and NCA Matagalpa (founded in 2013) are committed to the same principles of Academic Excellence with a Christian Foundation, but the primary language of instruction is Spanish and most students and staff are Nicaraguan.

All three schools are governed by a seven-member school board that oversees the association and each of the schools.  The school board members are elected by the General Assembly of Missionary Parents during its annual meeting.
