After completing the 4th class in the Missions, the student moved to one of the institutions of Dondi where, after a rigorous examination, he was placed at Instituto Cúrrie or at Escola Means. At the Institute, in agreement with the government, the Escola Tecnica was created where students completed the 1st and 2nd Year of High School Preparatory Cycles, which enabled them to enroll in the 3rd Cycle (3rd, 4th and 5th Years) at an Industrial, Commercial or National High School. The exams given to students both in the Missions and the Currie Institute came from the official Directorate of Education and some teachers came from Liceus and Escola Tecnico Industrial e Comercial do Huambo or from other state educational institutions.
With the exception of Escola Means and Instituto Currie do Dondi, all other schools also had external students.
The three Dondi institutions enjoyed a reputation with government officials. Professionally, the Institute taught Arts and Crafts in theory and practices for courses in: Agriculture and livestock, carpentry, carpentry mechanics and woodwork. The Means School professionally gave theory and practice of Dietetics, Home Economics, Cooking, home care, sewing, Laundry, basketry, pig and poultry breeding. In the Missions, Literacy was taught for leaders and a Home School for an integrative adult education for Men and women religious leaders or not. The aim of the programs was for community development to favor the social transformation of the people. This vision grew with the impalantaçao of Academic Homes of Nova Lisboa, Silva Porto, Sa da Bandeira and Luanda for students of the 6th and 7th Grade, and Universitarios, and abroad. The staff thus formed returned to teach at the Institutions of the IECA in Dondi and Missions. Each Mission contributed to the teaching of more than 1000 students per year and 350 in the area of ​​Adult Education and Literacy and professional training, while the highest level comprised 100 to 225 students. It was really a student explosion at all levels and progress was being made in the communities. Today Primary Schools continue but the Professional Technical training area continues, which the Bungo Center intends to re-establish with the participation of IECA staff and beyond.
With the conflict, most of the IECA's educational heritage destroyed begins to be erected in partnership with the Ministry of Education. However, it remains stationary in terms of professional technical area.
In April 2011, the Congregational Evangelical Church in Angola - IECA signed a Cooperation Agreement with the Ministries of Education and Territorial Administration, which in itself constitutes a unique opportunity for intervention in this particular sector.
The missionary experience and that of more than seventy Evangelical schools in eight fully functioning Provinces will be another opportunity that will undoubtedly leverage the execution and implementation of this Project. IECA is currently working on the Educational project at the University of Dôndi - UniDondi.
