20 Apr Juba Christian Academy in South Sudan
Following the independence of South Sudan in July of 2011, there has been an increased awareness of the need for a Christian school in Juba that would meet the needs of missionary families. In November 2011, a Working Committee was formed with members from SIL International, Mission Aviation Fellowship, International Ministries and Africa Inland Mission to consider the feasibility of starting a school in Juba to meet this growing need. In the fall of 2013 a Board of Directors was formed and it was decided that definite steps should be taken to address the need. The Board secured a physical space, solicited books and supplies, and accepted applications for admission. The name of Juba Christian Academy was proposed and accepted. On November 18, 2013 the first class of 3 and 4 year olds began, meeting in a shipping container on the MAF compound in Hai Cinema, Juba.
Juba Christian Academy inspires and equips each student to develop their God-given gifts for Christ-like service in the world community through a quality academic program, a caring, committed Christian faculty, and a diverse cross-cultural environment.
Juba Christian Academy will seek to advance the Kingdom of God by providing families a high quality Christian education in South Sudan.
