Mission & Vision
Lincoln International Academy (LIA) is a Catholic, private, bilingual, co-educational, college preparatory school located in Managua, Nicaragua, serving multicultural students from preschool to 12th grade. Lincoln was founded in 1991 with a lay apostolic spirituality and the conviction that academic excellence and Catholic formation are intrinsically related.
Lincoln International Academy’s faculty and staff promote a Christ-centered formation — in accordance with the Teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, within a safe environment, while fostering academic excellence, technology integration, education in virtues, democratic values and ecological awareness — where students are challenged to reach their full potential and become committed leaders within their community.
Lincoln International Academy is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the Nicaraguan Ministry of Education.
Lincoln International Academy fosters Catholic faith-based learning that deeply engages all staff and students in 21st century learning opportunities.
All facets of the learning system — curriculum, instruction, assessment, professional learning, accountability and resource allocation — are in support of 21st century learning.
Students will be creative, critical-thinking global citizens, analysts, communicators and producers engaged in learning that is conceptual and authentic within an inquiry-based environment.
