About Us

Who We Are

For 100 years, the Lott Carey Baptist Mission School (LCMS) has provided quality education for children in Brewerville, Montserrado County, just outside of Monrovia, Liberia. Founded in 1908, we opened our second LCMS campus in Bopolu, the capital city of Gbarpolu County in Western Liberia, since 1960. We presently enroll more than 1,400 students with female students comprising 48% of the student body population. In 2008, LCMS was the only high school in Liberia with a graduate who passed the West African Education Council examination with a ranking of Division One which qualified the student to enter any college or university in the West African Region without sitting for an entrance examination test. Academic success is consistent for our graduates annually. LCMS alumni are working in various interesting and impacting careers in the President’s cabinet of Liberia, in the private and public sector, and in various professional capacities in the United States.

Commitment to Education

While much of the Liberian educational system began to deteriorate in the years following the 1980 political coup-de-tat and most of the system was destroyed during the 14-year civil war, LCMS remained opened and viable. We were committed to providing some semblance of normalcy for children enrolled in our schools and to provide continued academic training for our students. While many educational administrators and teachers left the country during the conflict and were replaced by teachers without adequate preparation, the institutional stability of LCMS has enabled us to recruit and retain qualified educational professionals. Our enrollment has remained strong with waiting lists for student admission. We also provide evening school literacy training for market women to improve their capacities for learning and earning beyond our standard pre-K – 12 educational program. Former combatants and children impacted by war are included in our schools.
