The Granada Christian Education Center has quickly become an important fixture in Pantanal and its neighboring communities. In a short time, the school has gained a great reputation for being a place of love and hope, offering an exceptional education to all students. We currently serve 150 students and their families with a gospel-centered education, a safe and beautiful learning environment, loving Christian teachers, and an array of special experiences. As we add one grade per year, our newly built classrooms will allow us to accommodate our growth and reach our goal of celebrating the first graduating class in the year 2027. 

​​Thanks to the generosity of many supporters over the years, construction of PHASES 1 & 2 is complete! We continue to need funding for PHASE 3. We will reach our goal in the following phases, shown in reverse order of completion
