Paraguay Grade School

Background

Colegio Privado Adonai is a school in Asuncion, Paraguay that was started after the brothers and sisters in the local church felt the need to have a Christian influence on the education of the local children. It took years of prayer, organization, building and planning, but God finally allowed the doors of the school to open in February of 2003 for the first time. Starting the year with 58 students, Colegio Privado Adonai has now grown to an enrollment of 280 students as of March 2012…our 10th year anniversary!

Classrooms are filled to capacity. Parents are eager to send their children to this accredited school in which all the teachers are Christians, and Bible reading, prayer, scripture memorization, and spiritual retreats are all part of the school curriculum. Over 80 students are able to attend simply because of their academic scholarships (sponsored by others) or because of financial assistance received by those who want to help the school and students to thrive.

It is the prayer of the church, the school staff and the parents that God would allow this school to continue as a spiritually educational haven for the many children in Asuncion who might otherwise fall through the cracks of a public and very secular school system. By attending Colegio Privado Adonai, students are not only introduced to Jesus Christ, but are taught to learn more about Him as much as any other subject in their classrooms.
