Nicaragua Christian Academy Academic Excellence With A Christian Foundation

NCA International




"By far the greatest strengths are the Christian teachers. Never have we encountered such a loving, caring group of staff members in one school. We also appreciate the flexibility to have students attend school part-time, full-time, or home-school (while still taking advantage of the after-school activities). In addition, we appreciate the light that NCA is in the greater Managua community."

A Unique Opportunity

NCA International is a unique school with an exciting task in Nicaragua.  NCA seeks to train up future leaders to demonstrate true servant leadership and make decisions based on the Word of God and a compassion for their country.  As a teacher at NCA International, you are given the awesome responsibility of teaching and preparing children for leadership in government, business, education, the church, and their communities.  Our vision is the formation of Christ-followers who, motivated by heartfelt love for God, live as global agents of change!


  • Personal relationship with Jesus Christ; Evangelical Christian testimony with active local church experience
  • 4-year degree in Education or "in-field" 
  • Teacher certification and 2 years experience recommended for all positions
  • Sense of calling to teach in a developing nation setting
  • Willingness to make a three (or more) year commitment


  • Basic monthly stipend provided: $550 living stipend + $170 housing stipend
  • Housing arrangements made by school
  • Visa and residency costs while in the country

Raising Support

Teachers are encouraged to seek support through evangelical mission agencies and through local churches to cover their travel and monthly living expenses.  The basic monthly stipend is generally enough to cover the in-country living expenses of a single teacher.  We recommend raising additional support to cover family expenses, travel to and from Nicaragua, medical insurance, and other financial obligations.
