CICRIN's School continues to expand!  See below to learn how you can help.

 Why CICRIN needs your support
The Nicaraguan government does not allow charging for tuition for any school, public or private.  Thus there is no direct income based on student attendance. As the school expands, there will be additional operational costs.  Specific items in need of financial support are:
  • construction of new school facilities
  • increased operational costs for staff, after-school activities, supplies and maintenance 
CICRIN Christian Academy (CICRIN Academic Cristiana) has a current enrollment of 91 students from preschool to 7th grade. In 2018 we anticipate enrollment will be 110-120 students. We will also add an 8th grade class. 
Our vision for our expanded school includes all grades from preschool to 12th grade with an enrollment of 280 students housed in 14 classrooms. 

In addition we will provide after-school programs that will include:
  • mentoring
  • individual psychological counseling
  • games
  • special activities including traditional dance teams
  • nutritional services
  • adult education classes focusing on improving the home environment for children
  • after-school and nighttime sports for the larger community
Future plans include include adding a busing service to transport students from a further distance enabling us to expand our outreach.
