ACA is different.
At Arbor Christian Academy, we have...
Our curriculum at ACA combines both Dominican and US educational standards. Instruction is given in English and Spanish, helping students to become fully bilingual. Additionally, unlike other local schools, our students are challenged to think critically, reason creatively, and problem solve together.
Christ is at the center of all we say and do. More than just writing our values on the walls, our students are taught how to be wise, courageous, relational, rooted in God’s word, and full of integrity. ACA is a safe place where students can ask hard questions and study the Word together.
ACA is owned and supported by TeachBeyond, a global community that provides transformational education in order to see individuals and communities become all God intends, and promotes holistic personal growth and enduring social benefit. Currently, TeachBeyond has projects in 72 countries around the world. Learn more about TeachBeyond HERE.
ACA is proud to be an English-immersion school. Language learning happens best at an early age. For this reason, the majority of our core curriculum is taught in English. It is our goal that students graduate from our programs fully bilingual, a highly coveted skill throughout the Dominican Republic.
We've outgrown our space.
Although renting space from a church worked for a time, we are landlocked and cannot continue to grow in this location. Furthermore, Dominican law prohibits churches and schools from sharing the same property.
It's time to move!
The estimated cost of land is $500,000 USD.
We need 7,000 square meters to build our new campus.
Land in the Dominican Republic is viewed as an inheritance. It is a treasured commodity that holds great value for families and businesses alike. Owning our own piece of property will give permanence to Arbor Christian Academy.
The average cost of land in San Francisco is $71 USD per square meter. We are actively pursuing several pieces of land that may be good options for the school, but we need your help!
For years, our work has been made possible by donors like you.
2014 - present
Two donor-supported missionaries were sent to launch the project.
More than seventy donors raised $70,000 to build the second level with four additional classrooms.
2019 - present
Individuals and churches come together prayerfully and financially to support a class of students each month.
Join us in raising $500,000 to purchase land for our new campus. Many have already given, from the Dominican Republic and around the world. Will you be next?
