Infrastructure

“It is our intention to work closely with the right partners on the ground, to ensure we truly do deliver a long-term sustainable educational facility that will form part of a 'new Haiti'”

The school is situated on donated land in the commune of Saint-Marc — approximately 60 miles outside Port-au-Prince. 

Curriculum

The school curriculum emphasizes long-term sustainability to protect the environment and to ensure the economic development of Haiti.
At full capacity, the school will educate 720 students. We strive to achieve exemplary success rates in Haitian and French baccalaureate exams. All students will follow the Haitian curriculum and study Creole, French and English.

Community, Health & Sports

The community has made our efforts possible. We have created over 90 jobs in the community, training local teachers to provide world-class curriculum for our students.

The health program provides students with psychological, eye and nursing care. The students are taught nutrition and dental hygiene to lead a healthy life.

The sports program enhances the academic curriculum and offers athletes the possibility for future university scholarships.
