"Children are our most valuable resource (Herbert Hoover)." We firmly believe that the youth in St. Kitts and Nevis are our most cherished asset. Our 98% literacy rate allows us with confidence to extend resources towards the furthering of the younger generation. We believe that these underprivileged individuals would be successful if they are given the opportunity to advance their learning. We are also confident that the skills they will gather from abroad will prove useful in our economy to further advance our growing nation.
