Bingham Academy

Bingham Academy was founded in 1946 by SIM as a boarding school for the families of missionaries working in remote areas of Ethiopia.  Over the course of many decades, the mandate of Bingham shifted from beig a boarding home for SIM missinary kids, to being a K-12 International Christian day school serving the families of a variety of mission organizations, NGO's, diplomats, and Ethiopian nationals.
