College Preparatory Learning Center also known as CPLC started as a vision in the hearts of Pastor & Minister Ronald D. Walker, Jr. Beginning in 1997 with an after-school program, they encouraged and nurtured the children at their first location, 28 Anna's Fancy. Seeing growth and progress in their initiative, they moved to a new location, the Old Cinema One building in 2001. They worked hard and diligently to have a successfully functioning facility and in 2003, occupying a small room at Word of Faith International Christian Center they began the daycare portion of the school. Eventually, because of the rapid growth of the school they had to find another location.

Nestled in the heart of Foster Plaza in the bustling East End of the island, they found what is currently called College Preparatory Learning Center which occupies the old Department of Planning & Natural Resources section. In the 2007 - 2008 school year, CPLC graduated from a daycare and preschool to a full-fledged elementary school when 1st Grade was added. The 2nd Grade was added in the 2008 - 2009 school year and for the 2009 - 2010 school year, the 3rd Grade class will be launched.
What began as a vision in their heart has blossomed into a full functioning educational facility where a new grade is added annually as the students progress through the educational system. As the vision unfolds, our new facility which will be located in upper Contant will expand to enrollees from 0 to 12th Grade.

In addition, College Preparatory Learning Center II (CPLC) continues to operate in the Anna's Retreat area to accommodating our East End families. This is truly a vision blessed by God as it manifests itself daily in the lives of the children we serve.
