Opportunity: Teach–SAM Academy

Situated in the jungle region of Pucallpa, Peru, SAM Academy provides an excellent education (grades 1-12) for the children of missionaries. The Academy frees missionary parents for service by providing their children with an education that is well-rounded and preparatory for higher education in the US and other developed nations.

SAM Academy’s vision is to see students first and foremost grounded in the Word of God, equipped with Biblical principles and learning tools to develop spiritual, academic and social wholeness. SAM Academy is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), following the American school system, using U.S. curriculum and calendar for the school year

There is one classroom for elementary, one for middle school and one for high school. There are about 30 students enrolled. We encourage students to be involved in their parents’ ministries, as well as having school-organized community outreach opportunities.

SAM Academy needs a certified Special Ed/NILD (National Institute for Learning Development) teacher to meet the diverse educational needs of the student body which represents several international mission organizations.
