The Anglican Central Education Authority

Anglican Central Education Authority was established by the Synod of the Anglican Diocese of The Bahamas to direct the overall policy of Diocesan Education, control staff recruitment and conditions of service, development and expansion of the physical plants and finance, and to liaise with all church schools and other educational authorities as needed. The ACEA board is comprised of sixteen members including the Bishop, the Education Department, and other Diocesan Officers.


All children have a right to be given the opportunity to develop their God given talents and to receive an education which will help them build God's Kingdom.


The ACEA offers in a safe environment a well-rounded educational product that fosters the development of students' spiritual, academic, physical, social, and emotional well-being thereby affording their relevancy and adaptability for future citizenship and life in an ever changing global environment. The ACEA will provide the faculty and staff with all of the tools necessary to accomplish the mission.

Bishop Michael Eldon School, Freeport, Grand Bahama

"Great Happens Here" is the theme for 2011/2012 for Bishop Michael Eldon School in Freeport, Grand Bahama. This is much to ask, but if history is any indication, the staff and students of BMES will make this a reality. The Sporting and academic leader in Grand Bahama, BMES had a banner year in 2010/2011 winning ten of thirteen sports championships, and excelling in national and international examinations. Starting life as Freeport High School in 1965, the Anglican Diocese took over the school ten years later in 1975. In 1993, the school added a primary department, the Discovery Primary School. In 2005, the school comprising both Freeport Anglican High Shool and Discovery were renamed Bishop Michael Eldon School after the first Bahamian Anglcian Bisop.

St. Andrew's Anglican School, Georgetown, Exuma

School overlooks tiny Lake Victoria in Georgetown. St. Andrew's started as an independent nursery school and day care for local families and winter residents. As numbers grew, St. Andrew's Church assumed responsibility for the management of the school. Today, SAAS has students from grades nursery through 12.

St. John's College, Nassau

St. John's College, the oldest school in our Diocese, has produced many of The Bahamas' leading citizens. Most recently, Stephen Newbold '11 conquered the world winning gold at the 2011 IAAF World Youth Championships in Lille, France. Find out about our academics, athletics and community programmes

St. Anne's School, Nassau

Founded in 1955 by Canon John Pugh under an almond tree, St. Anne's School overlooks Nassau Harbour to the north and historic Fox Hill to the south. St. Anne's students excel both in and out of the classroom. This year, three of the four Bahamian United World College Scholars were St. Anne's graduates. At the same time, the Blue Wave choir delights audiences worldwide.
