Overview of Programs

In 2012, Education First, Inc. established Education First Academy (EFA) in Harper, Liberia. Currently, the Academy comprise of an early children center (Pre-K-Kindergarten) and an elementary school (Grade 1- 6).

At Education First, Inc., we believe that education means more than just an academic experience. Preparing students for the next grade, for college, and for adult life also requires building character, cultivating diverse talents and interests, and supporting students’ physical and emotional well-being, as well as engaging in healthy practices.

As a result we have adopted a “Total Child” Education approach to education. This philosophy ensures that each child at EFA:

•   learns about and practices a healthy lifestyle


•   learns in an environment that is physically and emotionally safe


•   is actively engaged in learning and is connected to the school and broader community.


•   has access to personalized learning and is supported by qualified, caring adults


•   is challenged academically and prepared for success in further study and for employment and participation in a global environment.

In addition to the traditional academic subjects, students at Education First Academy engage in enrichment programs including technology literacy, summer program, and after school help. Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) education is integrated throughout the curriculum.
