Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)
Partner With Us
Thank you for your interest in becoming a part of the ministry of Nicaragua Christian Academy (NCA) through financial giving. There are over 900 students enrolled at our three NCA campuses. Approximately twenty percent of these students receive tuition assistance.
At the beginning of each school year, NCA schools accept on faith students whose families are unable to pay the full tuition. Our commitment for 2014 is to raise $35,000 of external resources into our Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). We are trusting God will make this possible in partnership with people like you!

Frequently Asked Questions:
How does TAP help?
Tuition assistance is given to families in varying amounts up to 75%. Families are always expected to invest financially as they are able. Depending on the campus and grade level, tuition costs between $900 and $1200 per year for a child to attend NCA Matagalpa or NCA Nejapa.
Is TAP fully dependent on outside funding?
No. The NCA schools were established with the principle of tithing back to their own student body in the form of financial assistance. In addition to the tithing of our schools, we have opened up TAP to offer others the opportunity to invest in Nicaragua's children. TAP is a partnership between our schools and people like you, who financially support this program.
What is TAPs commitment to donors?
Our commitment is to sending regular e-newsletter updates on the schools, their projects, and testimonies from parents, teachers and/or students. You can subscribe now by clicking below (you will be redirected to our mailing list site).
Can I sponsor a specific child?
No. TAP is not designed as an "individual child sponsorship." NCA schools are committed to a holistic process of developing community by partnering with families in need to ensure their children will complete the school year. Each year, NCA schools use a well-developed process to review applications for TAP and decide on the level of financial assistance.
