St. John's and House of Bethany Epsicopal High School and Elementary School

The mission of the Episcopal High School and Episcopal Elementary School Alumni Association of the USA is to assist in ensuring that the Episcopal schools in Robertsport, Liberia (Episcopal Elementary, Episcopal High, St. John’s, House of Bethany) are restored to being distinguished educational institutions in Liberia.  We strive to mobilize and engage all alumni of these institutions in the spirit of “giving back,” and to collaborate with the Episcopal Diocese of Liberia to provide quality education to young Liberians.

The 2018 Annual Convention was held Aug. 31-Sept. 2 in Lawrenceville, GA. Click here for all the details.

The Memorial Wall is still open for additions. Contact William Sherman, (347) 938-5532, to add a loved one's name to the website and to the new plaque.

We have made it easier for you to pay dues, reconstruction contributions, memorial wall additions, and donations.

We employed the method at the last convention and it worked exceptionally well. We were able to raise $4,000 in a rally and almost all payments were made with credit cards.

We now accept credit or debit cards from Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club International and JCB. Our transactions are insured through the Bank of America. Your transactions are safe with us. Call us today at 404-822-6840, evening hours 4:00 pm to 12:00 midnight (Eastern).

Dues are now $100. Individuals no longer pay reconstruction contribution. Instead, each region is to pay $1000, so please contact your regional vice president for more information. 

Thanks and we are counting on you for your support.

Kind regards,
Bill Paasewe
National Treasurer

As graduates and former students of the Episcopal Schools in Grand Cape Mount County, Liberia, who now reside in the United States, we share a common vision for those institutions, as Liberia emerges from approximately twenty years of civil unrest and instability.

With St. John's, the House of Bethany, and the Episcopal High School in Robertsport serving as the culminating points that combine to create a prominent source of highly educated, disciplined, patriotic, and Christian young men and women who will be ready for higher education in Liberia or abroad, we will pool our resources to restore those institutions to the position of prominence that they enjoyed prior to the extended period of civil unrest in the country. 

As products of those institutions, we realize our indebtedness not only to them, but also to Liberia.  We acknowledge that while these institutions were largely created by missionaries from America, and that while we are currently reaping the benefits of a good Christian education, it is incumbent upon us as Liberians, to now give back to the very institutions that are largely responsible for preparing us for survival in the world today.  Within the next five years, we will continue to give of our time, our money, and our services, to rebuild our institutions and ensure that every child residing in the location of those institutions, is given the opportunity to education that is as good or better than what we had.

We will utilize the abundant technology that exists today to improve not only the infrastructure of the institutions, but also the facilities, and curriculum at each institution.

We envision that within the next five years, all institutions will be operational, that the Episcopal Elementary and High Schools in Robertsport will be reopened and fully staffed, and that the House of Bethany and St. Johns’ will reopen for boarding students.

Our ability to reach the hundreds of former graduates and beneficiaries of these institutions will improve to the extent that we will also develop our own program of missionaries, comprising of former students who will volunteer to return on a rotational basis, and contribute in the same fashion that others did when we received our education.
