Welcome to the College of West Africa Preparatory High School
The College of West Africa is a United Methodist High School located on 144 Ashmun Street, Monrovia, Liberia.
The school was established in 1839 (as the "Monrovia Seminary"), making it one of the oldest Secondary schools in Africa. It has produced many of Liberia's bright and finest leaders. The College of West Africa's main building is named in memory of Melville B.Cox, the first Methodist missionary to Liberia.
In 1904, by an act of the Liberian Legislature, the college was officially recognized and confirmed as the College of West Africa.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: LIBERIA COVID-19 SPREAD!
I. July 1, 2021, The ongoing spread of COVID-19 continues to put everyone in the City of Monrovia, including students, faculty and staff at our beloved CWA at significant risk of contracting the Virus. This is creating an even greater urgency for direct COVID-19 Prevention support to Rev. Paye Cooper Mondolo, President of our beloved alma mater College of West Africa, and his team of administrators. This support is needed to immediately implement preventative COVID-19 Health Protocols to help make the school safer. Click here to view the COVID-19 Protocols Toolkit created by CWA-AA, USA and forwarded to the School.
II. You may recall, on April 6, 2021, CWA-AA, USA made a special delivery (Gift) to the students & faculty at CWA School. CWA-AA, USA delivered boxes of customized washable masks, two large hand-washing stations and an assortment of personal bottles of hand-sanitizer for each student & staff. As the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll for the worst in Liberia, the school is in dire need of more supplies and quickly.
