A school’s Purpose is expressed through its Mission. I work with many schools founded by visionary entrepreneurs with an end in mind about which they are passionate – a difference they want to make in the lives of children and young people, in families, communities, countries, and even the world. Many times, the initial motivation was as singular as creating the school they envision as ideal for their children. I don’t recall interacting with any school founders who had the vision simply to start a school, build a business, or create a place to go to work. Rather, they all founded schools to make a difference at some level and in some way.

In global education, it is common for schools to call themselves “international” – either in their name, such as “International Christian School of CityName,” or in their description, such as “XXX Academy is an international Christian school.” However, the term “international” can have different meanings to different people, so it is important for school leaders to be clear about the way(s) in which their school is “international.”

The spring and summer months are active times for students in schools and universities. Many students leave campus for mission trips, field trips, and other community events. Due to this high rate of activity, administrators and teachers need to be aware of the looming threat of student abductions.

Chontales Academy has risen to the occasion and is experiencing success amid a perfect storm – a series of terrible obstacles seemingly destined to cause the school to fail. The Academy, located in Juigalpa, Nicaragua, is the labor of love of Dr. Erinn Magee (Director) and her husband, Dr. Silvio Sirias, founded as the first international-style English instruction school in the cattle country of central Nicaragua.

It is extremely important for school leaders to understand and embrace the dimensions of successful development processes. When development suffers, the school suffers. When development grows, the school grows.
