Each year Caribbean Mountain Academy receives an average of 20 – 25 mission teams that come to Caribbean Academy for a week and serve alongside the students both in the local community and on campus. When you send your teen to Caribbean Mountain Academy, they will be involved in a life-changing mission. Caribbean Mountain Academy was created to be a place where students would have the opportunity to serve those in a culture much different from the one they grew up in. Caribbean Mountain Academy believes that the students benefit greatly when positive influences and servant leaders surround them. For this reason, Caribbean Academy has a thriving Missions Program.
There are 2 ways for your teen to join our mission team:

Our location in Jarabacoa also gives us a unique opportunity to make a lasting impact in the Dominican communities surrounding our campus. We can have this significant impact because we are not simply serving this community, but we are in the community. Our Caribbean Mountain Academy campus provides jobs to the Dominican people and weekly outreach services to the community. This enduring presence has allowed our program to be so successful and allows our visiting mission teams to make such a lasting impact. Our vision for missions is simple: love thy neighbor. We desire to impact our neighbors those in the impoverished communities around us in a genuine and meaningful way. We want to do more than improve our neighbors’ quality of living by providing the finances and labor to undertake projects. We want to bring them the transformational power of Jesus Christ to change their neighborhoods from the inside out. As you serve the Dominican people, the lives of the teens at Caribbean Mountain Academy will also be touched as they work alongside you. In the United States, youth can become entrenched in a culture that is often self-serving. By watching your teams serve, teens will see the lasting joy that comes from putting others ahead of themselves.
Students stay at the Goshen Mission House while attending Caribbean Mountain Academy’s mission trips. The Goshen Mission House was built to provide a tranquil refuge and base for those who serve at Caribbean Mountain Academy. Jarabacoa and throughout the island, whether they are visiting mission teams or local missionaries and pastors. The Mission House can comfortably accommodate a group of 28 people, with two dorm-style rooms that have bunk beds in each. Each dorm room has its own bathrooms with toilets, showers, and hot water. There is a full-size kitchen with a refrigerator, oven, coffee pot, and everything necessary if a group would like to prepare its own meals, however, meals are provided as part of our per diem for our mission teams. The second story can be used as additional housing as well. It contains two separate rooms, one that sleeps 14 people, and another that sleeps 7. The upstairs also has a meeting area with a sweeping view of the Jarabacoa valley.
