La Palabra means “The Word” in Spanish. The school provides a high quality Christian Education for pre-primary, primary, junior high, and high school students in Monjas, Guatemala. The local Evangelical Central American Church started the school in 2001 as a means of giving their children a Christian education and as a means to reaching out to the community. Today, approximately 50% of the students are from the church and their parents pay school fees and 50% of the students come from poorer families in the local community and are supported through the Word & Deed sponsorship program.
