Students of The Esther School are supported through sponsorship by individuals, families, churches, and groups. Sponsors have the opportunity to support a child as they learn about God, His creation, and who they are in Christ. Student sponsors make it possible for a child to receive a quality Christian education, grow in God and in so doing, radically affect his or her future.

Co-teaching Information

Teaching at The Esther School is a partnership. One of the foundational concepts that we put into practice is co-teaching. North American and Zambian teachers are paired together to dually lead the classroom.

We believe that partnering is important. When you partner, it allows you to mutually learn from and empower each other. You’re role as teacher isn’t just about the 24 students in your classroom. It’s about growing and strengthening your co-teacher, who will impact students for years to come.

Co-teaching combines cultures, best teaching practices, and mutual love for the Lord to provide a unified, Kingdom-like classroom where students can learn to their fullest potential and develop servant leadership. And when these students watch their teachers working together, they get a glimpse of what the diverse and beautiful family of God looks like. 


Churches, Groups & Schools

Your Church congregation, group, or school can partner with The Esther School in many different ways. Consider taking on the next building project, throwing a fundraising event, or gathering a monthly collection. Want a more personal partnership?

We are so thankful for the churches and congregations that partner with The Esther School by funding building projects, supporting a staff member, faithfully praying and many more.

"There is something about The Esther School that grabs your heart and won't let go... God has touched that place and has touched me through it."
