Our Leadership


Inter-American School is owned and operated by the Inter-American Foreign Evangelical Missionaries Cultural Association (IAFEMCA), and draws its authority and legal status from that organization. IAFEMCA has its own constitution and by-laws and is legally recognized by the Guatemalan government. IAFEMCA is recognized as a non-profit institution in Guatemala, but not in the United States.

Board of Directors

While IAFEMCA has ultimate authority of the school, it elects from its list of members a Board of Directors to establish overall policy and to oversee the general operations of Inter-American School.


The Director implements the policies of the Board of Directors and is directly responsible to the Board for the day-to-day running of the school.
