Additional Information
NUA is a SDA Coed Boarding Academy. We have about 130 students from Egypt, and Sudan. You will be successful if you teach them your subject material and get close to them. We are located about 1 1/2 hours from downtown Cairo. We live of a 35 acre walled compound with a gateman and a night watchman. It is in a safe location and we have felt safe throughout the challenges in Egypt's revolution. Our school year is successful when everyone does what needs to be done to have a successful school year. Teaching is the volunteer’s primary duty, but everyone helps with many other tasks to make the school operate efficiently. There are about 30 staff members on campus about half are Egyptian and half are western. There could be up to 6 student missionaries here this next school year. You will get three vacations during the year: October Home leave (1 week), Christmas Home leave (about two weeks - our SM's went to Israel this Christmas), Easter (More touring or visiting of students in their homes).
