Alliance Academy was founded in 1929 to provide a quality, U.S.-style education for the children of missionaries living in Ecuador. Since that time, the school has grown to its present size of around 570 students from Preschool through 12th grade. The majority of our students come from Ecuador, the U.S., and Asia, as well as from all parts of the world and many different backgrounds.
