COLLEGE OF WEST AFRICA
CWA - Since 1839
"THOUGH A THOUSAND FALL,
LET NO TAFRICA BE GIVEN UP"
We want to take the gospel beyond culture through learning and teaching.
To make Christian leaders for the church and national service. To build an educated nation of intellectual boys and girls. We strive to ensure the success for all students in the 21st Century based on the principles of United Methodist doctrine and the living tradition of the Christian Church. College of West Africa should promote a Christ-centered environment which fosters the total formation of each child.
To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world through education, an attitude of service permeates every aspect of school life.
Love for country

WELCOME TO THE FOXES DEN
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.
The school is 100% owned and operated by the Liberian Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. Its nickname is "The Foxes Den"
