Greetings Parents/Legal Guardians
Our school has been making efforts to support our community during these difficult and uncertain times. Key among these efforts is the move to online school to enable students to continue their education until further notice and of course the major task of continually informing and engaging families, faculty and staff to do this as effectively as possible.
In recent weeks we have received a significant number of emails, calls and requests for guidance from parents and students. On that note we would like to request that you bear with us in love and patience as we are also learning to navigate and adjust to this new and challenging period.
Meanwhile, we continue to closely monitor the impact of the Coronavirus globally as we track governmental announcements and learn from leading health authorities at the DGS (Direção-Geral da Saúde) and WHO (World Health Organization).
We would like to thank you for all the prayers and support. Stay home, stay safe, and stay well.

Sintra International Christian Academy is operated by Comunidade Cristã Evangélica Adonai's Ministry of Education and guided by Christian values and excellence in education. The Academy is a vision project launched by Senior Pastor Americo F. Marques that seeks to inspire in our children a love for learning, a sustaining Christian faith, respect for a diverse world, and a call to service. We create a welcoming community that encourages each individual to grow in confidence, creativity, integrity, and compassion, grounded in the knowledge that each is a child of God.
Sintra International Christian’s vision is to create a passion for learning and discovery in a supportive, Christian environment. All students are encouraged to dream, explore, and experiment, as they grow into the children God has created them to be. Our faculty and staff are committed to helping each student develop the self-confidence, self-discipline, and self-respect necessary for strong character
development and academic success. Sintra International strives to empower its students to be responsible members of the school community and the world.
We are a new K4-12 International Christian Academy with an American curriculum. We opened our doors in September 2017. We provide a rigorous traditional curriculum while teaching 21st Century skills. Our College Prep program prepares students to excel in their SATs and attend American or international universities. Our small class sizes allow for individual attention. Please see our Academics page for information about our program. We also offer sports and other extracurricular opportunities.
