The History: Nicaragua Christian Academy (NCA) was founded in 1991 by three missionary families seeking a strong
Christian education for their 7 children. Today, NCA has grown to a size of over 285 students and 29 teachers, has become
the first school in Central America to be accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and has
realized its goal of offering a comparable education for Nicaragua's "middle class" (families earning $400-$1000 per month)
through a new daughter school, NCA Nejapa.
NCA Nejapa: Founded in February 2005, NCA Nejapa models the strengths of the mother school with two main
differences. First, the daughter school uses Spanish as a primary language with English taught as a part of the core
curriculum. Second, the tuition for the new school is approximately one-third of that of NCA in order to reach the middle
NCA Nejapa will offer children the academics and Christian foundation that are essential in forming tomorrow's leaders in a country that is desperate for strong, moral leadership.
