H. F. WILLIAMSON ACADEMY OF EXCELLENCE

History

 

In September 1993, a small institution located in Ridgeland Park, West, in New Providence, opened its doors to the Bahamian public and gave birth to what was known as The Robinson-Morris Academy Preschool And Nursery.

 

During its first months of operation, approximately fourteen students were enrolled with two teachers.  Since then, our institution has grown tremendously.  To God we give all honor, glory, and praise.

 

In 2006, the Robinson-Morris Chapel Church Family, and the Board of Directors, decided to change the school's name to the H. F. Williamson Academy of Excellence.

 

The H. F. Williamson Academy of Excellence is a church-related institution, registered with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology.  It is operated by the church's Board of Directors

Presently, we are constructing a new facility (that is well on the way) which will cater to students from toddlers through grade 6.  Through the dedication and commitment of the individuals connected with the H.
