The school has been a marvelous experience in my life. With the quality education we offer, scholarships for children who can't afford the supplies, and love our staff gives, the community is changing.
Colegio Evangelico Isaias Emmanuel
Only 25% of Dominican children complete high school, mostly due to economic strain on the family. 40% of Dominicans live in poverty. Even public school is expensive for Dominican families due to the cost of uniforms and supplies. Many children trade low income jobs for school after the 8th grade if not before.
What We Are Doing Now
Thanks to the GO Kids! Sponsorship Program, we are able to offer these families an otherwise unattainable private Christian school education for students pre-K to 8th grade. This education offers opportunities unavailable in public schools, namely regular exposure to knowing Jesus as Lord, a superior learning environment, caring teachers, classroom sizes limited to 25 students, regular access and use of our library, computer lab and a reader’s reward program.
