Nicaragua {Managua}

Eric And Marilyn Lofsgard

Eric and Marilyn Loftsgard are Americans living in Nicaragua’s capitol, the city of Managua and serve as Directors of the ministry there. They help with the administration of 3 Christian schools in the area (Nicaragua Christian Academy) in Nejepa, Managua and Matagalpa. These schools provide a Christ centred, high quality education to their students. Most students do pay a fee to attend Nicaragua Christian Academy, however there are also sponsorships available for those families who simply cannot afford to send their children to school.


Nicaragua Christian Academy is an association of 3 schools with a combined 46 years of experience.  The first school, NCA International, is a English-language Christian school with a dual mission to (1) educate missionary kids, and (2) train up future leaders of Nicaragua.  NCA International was founded in 1991 and became the first ACSI-accredited school in Central America; it is also accredited with AdvancED.  NCA Nejapa and NCA Matagalpa (founded in 2005 and 2013, respectively) are Spanish-language schools with the same mission to train up future leaders of Nicaragua.  Between the 3 schools, we are now serving the educational needs of over 1000 students!


For anyone interested in becoming part of a Latin-American culture and making a difference in the lives of children and in the future leadership of Nicaragua, this is an excellent opportunity!
