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"

  SCHOLARSHIP SUPPORT

 The need for educational development is very great. As one of the oldest   educational institutions in Liberia, many students will like to attend but have   financial constraints, there making it difficult to enroll in school. There is   also high unemployment. There are needs for the human resource   development for better Liberia. Please support the children of Liberia by   keeping then in school.  - $530USD can support a student at CWA per   annual.

  More information re specific challenges/needs at CWA.

  The Administration is asking all alumni to support this great institution.
