Meet the Leaders of Tomorrow
The school not only provides students with a solid academic foundation in a wide range of essential subjects, but also helps them become responsible and productive members of the Liberian community. We do this by teaching critical skills in conflict resolution, problem solving and peacebuilding.
We encourage and welcome international organizations, volunteers and donors to assist us in this critical work - together we can shape the lives and futures of Liberian children, and, through them, the future of Liberia.The school and its founder, Karrus Hayes, have recently been featured in programs on Teachers' TV and Together TV.

What We Do
In Africa, most primary schools require children to pay fees for instruction, uniforms, books and materials. Even modest school fees are beyond the reach of some children living at Buduburam Refugee Settlement. The school's founders saw that, because of this obstacles, hundreds of primary school age children were not receiving an education. They resolved to found a school that would be completely free, and provide a competitive and well-rounded education for disadvantaged youth.
Students at Carolyn A. Miller Elementary are provided with uniforms, books, classroom supplies, and quality instructors. They are also given personalized and individualized academic attention during and after school. The staff are committed to ensuring that each child learns and grows to the his or her full potential at Carolyn A. Miller Elementary.
