The Exuma Foundation seeks to support education from kindergarten to tertiary level.
Our programs include:
Scholarships for qualified students from the local high school to The College of The Bahamas through funding provided by the Murray DeYoung Foundation. Field trips and extracurricular learning experiences are facilitated through the Foundation's transport and campus facilities. Workshops for teachers and students are provided at the Campus Auditorium. The Foundation houses Exuma's only school for exceptional learners.
Our campus has the only only school for exceptional learners on Great Exuma.. Students of all ages and disabilities are represented in class that meets during the regular school year in cooperation with the Ministry of Education.
The Foundation supports environmental education in the Exuma schools and provides unique learning opportunities on our campus. Recently, the environmental education program sponsored school gardens in 5 primary schools.
