    Our Mission

    Founded in 1998, the National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) is an initiative to encourage and facilitate teaching and learning about East Asia in elementary and secondary schools across the United States. For over 10 years, the Arkansas NCTA (ARNCTA) has joined this national network of institutions with the goal of providing on-site seminars, teacher resources, and travel funding that empowers Arkansas teachers to bring East Asia into their classrooms.
